Hydration Station

We all know it's important to stay hydrated. But is plain water the best option? In short. No.

Plain water can actually dehydrate you more. The ideal hydration consists of electrolytes, herbal teas or anti-inflammatory drinks.


"How much do I need to drink?" is the other question many women ask me. The goal is to drink at least half your weight (pounds) in ounces of liquid--so if you weigh 180 lbs, 90 ounces a day would be a great minimum goal. This does NOT include caffeinated, sugary, alcoholic or carbonated drinks, typically.


Here are my Top 8 favorite ways to hydrate that do not involve plain, boring water.

  1. Redmond Re-Lyte. Is a perfect electrolyte mix without ridiculous amounts of added sugars.

  2. Golden Milk. There are a million recipes out there on the internet. This is my personal version.

  3. Herbal Teas-Chamomile + Lavender for sleep; Ginger, Lemon + Honey for cold season; Peppermint for gut health; Nettle + spearmint for PCOS; Reishii for autoimmune...there are SO many herbal teas out there and they have very valuable benefits when you use the right ones for your needs. Consult with your provider about what is best for you.

  4. Bone Broth-there are so many benefits to bone broth! You can even use in soups or sauces, in place of stock, to add bonus nutrition. This is another one I reach for through the colder months or anytime I feel like I need a little boost.

  5. Lemonade!--fresh lemon juice, water and any bonus points like fresh mint, ginger, blueberries, watermelon, cucumbers or raspberries make an incredible drink on a hot day.

  6. Smoothies--esp green juice smoothies are a total win-win. Veggies + hydration? Yes, please.

  7. Fruits + Veggies--apples, cucumbers, watermelon, celery, lettuce, berries, tomatoes--they're all full of hydration AND fiber so load up!

  8. Soup--choose your favorite soup and count it towards your daily hydration needs!
