Mom Was Right: Drink Your Water, Eat Your Veggies and Saute Those Onions

Another great tip my mom gave me: make the kids do chores!

Another great tip my mom gave me: make the kids do chores!

One of the greatest tips my mother ever gave me was:

“Even if you have no idea what you’re going to cook for dinner, just sauté some butter and onions so that when your husband gets home, it smells like you’re cooking something amazing and have it all under control.”

Best. Advice. Ever.

Now as a mother myself, the one thing I find myself saying most (especially living in sunny California!), is “do you have your water bottle?!”

Each of our family members have their our own reusable bottles and we are trained to bring them everywhere we go. Drinking clean, purified water (preferably reverse osmosis) is one of the most important things we do for our bodies each and every day.

More important than food. More important than exercise. Water!

Importance of Hydration

Did you know?

    • 60% of your adult body is water¹! Every cell relies on hydration to transport energy, move your skeletal frame, and flush your body of toxins and waste.
    • You can get water from certain foods with high moisture content. Most fruits and vegetables are nearly 90% water²!
    • Water has a thermogenic effect. One interesting study showed that consuming 16 oz. of water caused a 30 percent increase in metabolism³! That’s right — drink water and instantly burn more calories! How easy is that?!

Lose 14 Pounds With One Simple Change

Join thousands of others who are pledging to drink more water this year!

Today I’m excited to partner with the Nestlé® Pure Life® Hydration Movement in encouraging you to replace sugary drinks with water. You know how I feel about those!

With almost 400,000 fans, Nestlé® Pure Life’s® Facebook page has thousands of Americans pledging to swap one sugary beverage a day with water — for an entire year. Making this one small change cuts over 50,000 calories from your diet!  What could you do with an extra 50,000 calories?! Um…I know, how about lose 14 pounds of fat?! Yes, that’s the math, folks.

In setting new habits, it doesn’t do anything to just think about it! You have to DO something. Why not join the thousands of us who are pledging to drink more water?
