I’m so excited because the weather is finally picking up again for real this time. There have been some teases of warmer days, but now I’m convinced that it’s here to stay. Having lived in Texas for a good portion of my adult life, I crave the warmth. And I mean warm warm. Let’s just say I wore a sweatshirt to Girls on the Run last week when it was 73 and the girls looked at me like I was crazy. I was cold.
But with warmer temps comes the increased need to stay hydrated. Now, I’m a water fiend. It’s pretty much the beverage I go with 99.9%. I’m also a water purist. I can tell the difference between different waters, if it came from a tap, if it was filtered etc. and I am very picky about it. But drinking water all day can get kind of boring if we’re being real here.
So, when CORE Hydration reached out to me and asked me to sample some of their new drinks from their Organic line, I was like sign me up and then some.
I workout a lot, that’s no surprise, so it’s imperative that I get enough water during and after my workouts. Hydration is SO IMPORTANT. Our body’s are made up of 70% water and it’s the thing that keeps it going. Plus, it’s essential for quick recovery. I notice a huge difference if I focus on my water intake after a killer workout vs. when I don’t when it comes to muscle soreness.
First of all, let’s talk about these flavors.
I started with the coconut colada and I died of happiness. It was delicious. Not joking, tasted like I was on the beach with a pina colada in hand, but it wasn’t an aggressive syrupy taste. Just nice and light and perfect. I would drink this over and over again easily.
Pomegranate blue acai wasn’t my favorite, if we’re being honest, but I tend not to like those flavors anyway. It was a little too sweet for me.
Orange Clementine and Watermelon Lemonade were both delicioussss. So light and crisp. I drank them while lying outside doing work the other day and I swear summer happened instantly.
My two favorites were Orchard Pear and Peach Mango. Both were so good that I ended up hoarding them and adding a little bit to glasses of water so it would last longer #noshame.
These waters and now on my must have list because not only do they only have 5 calories per serving, but they’re jam packed with antioxidants. That and I can pronounce everything on the label, which doesn’t always happen.
