I find that it really helps my digestive system. I have a really happy belly after I eat it. Do you like papaya? When I mention this fruit to people, I get a lot of “ewww” faces.

Hello Everyone. It’s been quite some time since I wrote in my blog. Due to personal reasons I had to take a sabbatical. In the past, when I would write in my blog, I took “Sundays” and dedicated that day to a beautiful piece of music to share with you. Today is Father’s Day. I thought it appropriate to re-launch my blog on this day for 2 reasons. Number one because I get to share with you a beautiful song. The second reason is that it just so happens to be the music that my father wrote.

May you all dance to the song that fill your heart with Love.

Staying hydrated is very important, especially in the summertime. So why is hydration so important? I’m glad you asked. Your body is actually made up of mostly water and all of your cells, tissues, and organs need it to function properly. Water is used to remove waste, keep joints lubricated, regulate body temperature, and it is essential for life. I can see how one may get bored with plain old water, but nevertheless it must be consumed to stay hydrated. Your consumption level will change based on many factors such as your size, activity level, exposure to the elements, and so on. With this in mind you may want to add some appeal to the water to make it more drinkable.

Well you definitely need to drink water and/ or fruits and veggies that contain water to stay hydrated. Why not have fun with your beverages and be creative. A blended water with your favorite natural flavors will taste good and will be more encouraging to drink. You can really have fun with and design your own beverages. I have personally did this to create a wonderful natural sports drink. I use coconut water as a base due to its high levels of minerals, then I add other fruits to enhance flavor and add more nutrition, and top it off with a high protein food source such as spinach or kale blend it and wallah! A highly hydrating and nutrient dense beverage that will restore what I have lost during exertion and help my body repair while staying hydrated.
