Replenish your electrolytes with this simple health drink, no chemicals, just easy to absorb nourishing minerals, electrolytes and calories.
With flu season in full swing, I thought I'd share this recipe for a homemade health aid. It's like a gatorade without the chemicals, additives, food coloring, and high fructose corn syrup (YUCK!). Those things are not what you want fueling your body and resetting a balance in your body when you are sick. This is also safe to drink during pregnancy and would be great during labor to keep yourself hydrated.
4 cups Coconut Water
The juice of 2 limes and 2 lemons
1/4 teaspoon sea salt (I like to mix a grey and pink salt)
1/4 cup raw honey or maple syrup
1 tsp natural calm magnesium
You can mix all of the ingredients together in a blender. I just used a mason jar and shook it up real good.
Before labor and for friends that were having a home birth, I poured the health aide into an ice cube tray and froze the liquid as ice cubes. You could then add them to water or just defrost as needed when sick or in labor.
Hoping this flu season passes quickly, but you can be ready by having this prepped and in the fridge! Also, consider sending it to your childrens sports games instead of the high sugar, commercial varieties.
If you need access to the natural calm supplement, you can purchase off my online supplement dispensary: https://wellevate.me/caitlin-johnson
As always, in good health!
