Summer is a time of practices and play dates and vacations. Basically, even though things technically “slow down” in the summer, we’re still always on the go, but in a more fun way! Amidst all the travel and play, we have to grab something quick to eat and drink in between activities. It can be hard to keep making healthy choices.
I’m a big fan of products that make it easy for me to make healthy choices in a hurry, so I’m loving these two mixes from NOW Foods that I can add to my water or juice this summer to keep my body in great working order!
I actually love drinking water, but I do prefer some flavoring to add variety. And water is super important for my body, not just for everyday life, but also as a runner. If I’m not getting enough water, my whole body suffers. It is not pleasant.
I discovered a new flavoring option from NOW Foods that is perfect for on-the-go hydration! Slender Sticks are sugar free drink sticks containing natural ingredients, natural sweeteners, and 10 super fruits! The Acai Lemonade flavor makes for a lovely summer drink that can be enjoyed in a mason jar on my deck or in a water bottle as I shuttle the kids to another summer activity. One packet is enough to flavor a regular 16.9oz water bottle. I’ll be keeping a few packets in my purse for easy use – it’s super delicious!
I don’t know about you, but the last thing I want in the summer when we’re traveling is an upset stomach. At home, I have Greek yogurt almost every day, which contains probiotics which help support proper digestion. I can tell a difference when I’m not eating my Greek yogurt. But yogurt doesn’t travel well without refrigeration, so I’ve been looking for other ways to get my probiotics on the go. I’ve found a solution in these great packets from NOW.
The NOW Probiotic-10 packets are vegetarian-vegan, as well as dairy, wheat and gluten free, and they are super easy to use! This also makes is great option for those who can’t have dairy products. Just add one packet of this unflavored supplement to 4-6 oz of water and drink up to keep your intestinal tract in great working order. Probiotics aren’t glamorous or yummy on their own, but you’ll be glad you added them to your water or favorite juice this summer.
When my body is well-hydrated and my digestion is functioning properly, I can enjoy summer with my family with much more gusto! How do you make sure you are physically at your best during the summer?
This summer I am loving flavored unsweetened seltzer waters (like La Croix)! They make me feel like I’m drinking something special and summery, but it is really just good old hydrating water. 🙂
I need to try La Croix! I keep hearing people mention it this summer!
