Natural Gatorade for staying hydrated.

It is getting warm outside, and trust me, the last thing anyone needs is dehydration. Dehydration slows you down, makes you tired, and even a little cranky.

Whether you are traveling, going to the park, or sitting in your office, you need to be hydrated.
I am going to give you a few ideas on how you can make some awesome vitamin waters that are perfect for the entire family.
I find my kids need water to taste good to drink more, and  to be honest, me too. Make your water taste great and get the vital minerals and vitamins you need in one drink, by making yourself a natural Gatorade.
Do not let yourself get dehydrated this week. Make one large pitcher and leave it in the fridge ready to go. Here is how!

Ingredients:

>  1/2 gallon water

>   1 grapefruit, sliced (can substitute with one lemon)

>  1 tangerine, sliced (can substitute with an orange)

>  1 large cucumber, sliced

>   10-20 peppermint leaves

> Ice – as much; as you like

 Directions

Rinse grapefruit, tangerine, cucumber and peppermint leaves. Slice the cucumber, grapefruit, and tangerine. Combine all the ingredients in a half gallon pitcher. Allow the ingredients to sit as long as possible for maximum benefits.

Keep it simple, and be creative, you can make any combination for a colorful, flavorful water that keeps you hydrated and healthy!
