In summer, when temperatures rise, it is essential to stay well hydrated. Did you know that water represents 60 to 65% of an adult’s total body weight? It is therefore essential for our proper functioning…
Drink before you are thirsty
In hot weather, our bodies can quickly become dehydrated. This is why it is strongly recommended to drink before you feel thirsty. Water is obviously the best way to do this, even if you don’t always feel like it. Fortunately, there are a few tricks that can be used to add a little extra flavour: flavoured water. Kids and adults alike love it!
Nothing could be simpler: just add some sliced fresh fruit, mint leaves – or whatever you like – to your carafe or flask!
For example, kiwi fruit goes perfectly with strawberries, watermelon, lemon or mint. Peel the fruit if necessary, cut it into pieces, put it in a carafe with fresh herbs (mint, lemon verbena, etc.), cover with water, add ice and leave to infuse for a few minutes. It’s ready!
Fruit and vegetables full of water
Finally, you probably know that fruit and vegetables are mostly made up of water. Kiwi fruit, for example, is over 80% water! This is another way to stay hydrated when the temperature rises. Fresh fruit salad, fruit kebabs, fruit soup… There are plenty of ideas!
Be Kiwi, Be Happy!
