Sip on bevvies with benefits

Beating the heat with healthy beverages is key to avoiding dehydration and all the side effects that come along with it—headache, irritability, fatigue, fogginess, to name just a few. You typically need half your weight in water ounces, but in warmer temperatures (or during exercise), you’ll need more. Iced tea and lemonade are standard sips, but they often come loaded with added sugar and calories. Instead, I whip up light and refreshing drinks that you can enjoy poolside, at family BBQs or while the kids catch fireflies at sunset. For example, try my Tropical Fruit Punch featuring LaCroix’s new flavor: Beach Plum.
