Quenching thirst is vital for us in order to not have our mouth dried up and feeling fatigued. What is the first thing we wish to drink when we are parched, possibly a glass of water, and of-course, a all glass of nice and chilled fizzy drink.
There are infinite choices of what we can drink, all being more delicious than the other. But which one provides nutrition and which neglects your health is key to understanding the perfect things to be improving our system all the while, helping us stay hydrated.
Our daily glassfuls can be easily categorized into two choices. Let us make a list of the unhealthy ones to avoid.
- Pina Colada
- Red Wine
- White Wine
- Energy Drinks
- Fizzy Fruity Sodas
- Packaged Fruit Juices
1. Home-Made Ice Tea
Packaged Ice tea contains increased amount of sugar, hence that spike in energy meter after you consume a glassful. Instead, have black tea brewed, adding lemon juice slices and a but of honey in it. Freeze this drink overnight to have a tall glass of nice energy drink whenever you need.
2. Flavored or Sparkling Water
Fruity detox water is delicious, tangy and gives you a boost of flavor throughout the day. Normal drinking water can be bland, thanks to which we often drink fizzy colas as a substitute for a ‘tastier water substitute’. This can lead to slow but steady obesity rate due to the high-sugar content in cold-drinks. You can try this detox recipe to have your everyday fruity water to carry along, be it at work or the gym.
3. Fruits and Vegetable Smoothies
Fruit smoothies are all-round healthy and delicious. These frothy drinks can bring a glow to your skin, provide optimum nutrition to the body and have you feeling rejuvenated. Vegetable smoothies are heavy and keep your stomach filled for longer. Vegetable smoothies help detox your body and help you feel fresh and energetic throughout the day.
Try these healthy alternatives and see positive changes in your body that were suppressed from unhealthy thirst-busters.
