Hydration is very important for our body. Every day, I try to drink four liters of water. I also use an app as a reminder and to see if I achieve my daily goal (there are many of them, I have one called “Water Drink Reminder”). Besides that I have some of my favorite drinks in between. I choose them wisely, because I want to stay as healthy as possible.
I’ve already written about the drinks that are best in the morning, here. Needless to say, most of my days I start with matcha. In a bleneder, I put a teaspoon of matcha powder from Lemon Lily, half of a teaspoon of honey and one cup of 3.2% milk. Drink is ready and I’m ready and energized to start a day.
For my breakfast, I choose a Fab Four Smoothie (in the picture above). One of the books I got from V for Christmas is by Kelly Leveque “Body Love”, where you can find out more about this kind of smoothies. Long story short, you get protein, fat, fiber and greens which are satisfying and filling for me for about 4 to 5 hours. I also like adding to it some spirulina powder and Green Superfood from Amazing Grass.
During the day I like to have a collagen drink, which actually I’m having right now. Collagen has many important functions, including providing your skin with structure and strengthening your bones. One scoop of Beauty Glow Collagen and water mixed together and I’m good to go. I like lavender lemon and tropical hibiscus the most.
I like almost all the herbal teas out there. Depends on my mood, I choose: rosemary, lavender, peppermint, holy basil, etc.
I’m thinking of writing a whole blog post about different kinds of tea and their properties so stay tuned.
I used to drink lots of coffee, at least twice a day. When I met V, I stopped, because he doesn’t drink coffee at all and I wanted to challenge myself and see if I can conquer this habit. I did and I was very happy about it, even though it was not easy at the beginning.
There are some advantages and disadvantages of drinking coffee. I do like it as a drink, especially with my collagen creamer. Sometimes instead of my collagen drink, I’ll just have coffee with this creamer.
To be honest with you, I’ve discovered such wine not long ago. Alcohol is not good for your health, that’s the fact. Having a glass of red dealcoholized wine on a Saturday night with V is something I really enjoy a lot.
Did you know that non-alcoholic wine has (still) antioxidant properties and of course, less calories?
Hot milk and a teaspoon of cocoa powder mixed together will make you sleep better, because it contains magnesium. Something that I enjoy at least twice a week.
In conclusion, the most important thing is to make healthy choices and stay hydrated. Very hydrated. If you crave soft drinks, try to reduce and replace them with the choices above. After a while, you’ll notice a difference. I don’t crave such drinks at all. What’s more, my stomach makes funny noise after I drink coke, for instance. I haven’t heard that sounds for a very long time and I like it this way :).
I would love to hear what your favorite drink is :).
