Humans are 75% water. As a result, waters is an essential element to maintaining good health.  Here in Arizona summer is upon us so we think a lot about hydration but these tips are good for you no matter where you live.


  1. Drinking water at the correct time maximizes its effectiveness on the human body. 2 glasses of water after waking up helps activate internal organs. Especially eliminative organs.
  2. Drinking water 30 minutes before a meal helps break down the food in your stomach and keep your digestive system on track. Water is a key enabler for our digestive organs.
  3. Latest awesome hydration elixir I concocted for when water seems so boring: 64 oz purified water, 1 whole lemon sliced, 1 whole orange sliced, 2 sprigs of fresh mint, 3 packets of Stevia. Mix all ingredients in a large pitcher, stir & enjoy throughout the day.
  4. Zucchini (room temp.) cut with a mandolin long ways or spiralized is a very quick & hydrating pasta substitute. Just slice, pour on your favorite pasta sauce and food is ready!
  5. Watermelon is super hydrating and a great source of iron along with vitamins A, C, betacarotene and a whole host of other micronutrients our bodies so desperately crave. Have a half of an entire watermelon for breakfast, your body will thank you!
