Honeydew smoothie

8F780F6F-E776-48A0-80D0-6BA01D33FF3EAnother hot humid day, no sign of relief.

So a perfect time for a cold sweet smoothie. We usually make one when we buy a honeydew that is not sweet or just not flavorful, but this one was sweet as honey, so no need for honey or maple syrup.

our  ingredients :

slices of honeydew

strawberry

banana

orange juice

cup of crushed ice

Tart cherries

Not only tart cherries are beautiful, and great in a pie, they are also a great drink to have before a workout. Drinking the juice twice a day for at least seven days before a big race or event can help to ease the pain, and shortens the recovery time.

It also can help with diabetes, high blood pressure, gout, and insomnia. It can also increase urine production, and helps with digestion.

Tea for 2 or more

it’s a delicious way of getting fluid into our body each day, and teas can help protect our teeth and our heart, as well as possibly even helping us to battle cancer.

All non-herbal teas are made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant how much process they go through determines if we are having green, black or oolong tea.

Tea has antioxidants. Drinking tea can help with losing weight, also help with keeping our heart healthy, and has less caffeine so it helps to calm our nerves.

We are putting together a pot of tea using loose leaf earl grey, and exotic sweets and sweetners to make it fun.

4 healthy drinks to quench your thirst

671A6498-EBFB-43DF-B254-A729380A3E6E
Chocolate milk, Yogurt smoothie, Oj

it’s not always so simple to toss aside the convenience of sports drinks after a hard workout, but if you’re looking to leave the synthetics aside, high fructose corn syrup and artificial dyes, try these natural drinks :

Coconut water:

 Has five times more potassium meaning electrolyte lost in sweat that helps with the storage of carbohydrates.

Orange Juice:

Make it a freshly squeezed, or at least not from concentrate. Oj boosts your body’s system with carbs and potassium.

Chocolate milk:

Gives your body the protein, calcium and essential carbs that it needs to replenish your muscles after a long run or a draining weight workout in the gym.

Yogurt smoothie 

Gives you carbohydrates, good quality protein and some sodium and potassium.

Have A Great Workout🧗🏻‍♀️
