To many, summer is the most exciting season because they can do many activities during this time compared to other seasons. While we can be thrilled with the idea that summer is here, we can also easily experience exhaustion and dehydration for this period due to the excruciating heat of the sun. And yes, It’s quite difficult to keep your pacing when you’re feeling drained and uncomfortable due to humidity. So what can we do about it?
To some, summer also mean enjoying sodas and sugary refreshments, but to us FMDieters, junkie drink is a no-no! So, the solution to keep hydrated is by drinking the natural and healthy options. Check out these 3 refreshing drinks that are blissfully good this summer season.
1. Opt for Flavored Water
If you find yourself facing a challenge of meeting your daily water requirement, then it’s time to spice up and make some variation to your drink! You can try making a flavored water. You can add some citrus or lemon in your spring water to give some metabolic boost. If you’re not up for some juicy taste, opt for phase-specific fruits and veggies on your flavored water like watermelon, strawberry, and spinach.
2. Make Your Own Iced Tea
No, we’re not saying you can now drink your favorite non-herbal and cool-flavored tea. Remember that those beverages still have caffeine content in it. What we will be making here are cold and refreshing herbal teas. You can add 1-2 teaspoons of dried or fresh mint to your favorite peppermint tea bags and spring water and leave it for 30 minutes. You can also add some ice and stevia or xylitol for a perfect chilling summertime drink.
3. Opt for Tropical Smoothies
Adrenalin-calming fruits like watermelon, pineapple, and mangoes are great this summer season! Not only they are perfect in re-hydrating but they are also packed with fiber and vitamins to stabilize your blood sugar level and keep you fuller and satisfied.
