Celery Lemonade Electrolyte Drink

Unless you purchase an all natural Sports Drink without any added sugars, flavors and colors, chances are you’ll be getting a good dose of nastiness that isn’t too “sporty”. Our bodies require a certain balance of minerals and electrolytes to remain properly hydrated. This can be especially delicate and crucial in times of intense  physical activity or other strain, such as illness. I tell my kiddos to drink until their lips feel soft and  juicy and then drink often enough to keep them feeling that way. If your lips are dry or if thirst is felt, you are already dehydrated.

Below is a fantastic homemade electrolyte drink that is featured in my SUPERHERO SMOOTHIE BOOK.
