Previous tips to keep hydrated:

  • Monitor fluid loss by checking the color of your urine. It should be pale yellow and not dark yellow, too smelly or cloudy.
  • Drink enough water to prevent thirst. Know that thirst is a sign of dehydration.
  • Begin exercise well-hydrated. Drink plenty of fluids within the hour before, during and after your exercise session.

New reader’s tips:

  • Carrying a water bottle at all times.
  • Providing water for kids’ sports teams.
  • Drinking a glass of water even before breakfast or the morning coffee.
  • Remembering to drink water at all times especially when living in hot areas where body water loss is more prominent.

As part of their dedication to healthy hydration through the Drink Up initiative, Nestlé Pure Life has committed to providing nearly one million 8oz servings of water to After-School All-Stars.

To help your family Drink Up and be a part of the Ripple Effect – a movement to keep kids hydrated – visit pureliferippleeffect.com and share your tips for healthy hydration using #pureliferippleeffect. I am positive that many people will benefit from everyone’s hydration tips across the nation!

Christina! Congrats!

As I mentioned previously, water is the most important, and often most forgotten, nutrient. You can last for some time without food, but only days without water. Use some of the tips mentioned above to keep you and your family well hydrated. It is very important for proper digestion, blood circulation, metabolism and many other bodily essential functions in the body.

So remember, stay hydrated!

    Just stay tuned for the next one, because that one is really good and for sure you will be able to make and eat, plus it is a very quick one to put together, quicker than this one :-)

  6. These look great! I always get the natural peanut butter and it’s so much better than the other stuff.

  11. Jennifer,

    That is weird. I have made these a few times and so far so good. I do keep mine in the freezer and thow them out for a few minutes before I eat them. I have never had any

    Sorry they didn’t turn out good. Maybe next time :-)
    Thanks for visiting my blog!!

  12. Do you think milk chocolate would work as well?

  13. These look really good. I will try them (but with almond butter)… and might try them with carob chips.

    I am truly glad to see a dietician promoting a healthy lifestyle. My husband works with the elderly and disabled and we have been shocked to see what “professional dietician’s” feed these people in facilities and homes. Our vision is to someday run a group home and feed people whole, simple foods and herbs that will sustain and probably improve their quality of life.

    • You are very right. It is quite shocking the bad quality food patients get served at hospitals and nursing home even though dietitians are on staff. It is quite remarkable what you and your husband have in mind. I hope it can someday take place :-) Thanks for stopping by.

  14. Sharing these tomorrow afternoon on my page!

  15. can someone tell me what brand of chcolate i could use very new of eating this way
