My Grandpa, who owned an organic produce farm, gave me some good wisdom growing up— if you hear something more than once, you probably should listen to it. He also explained how we have lost so many minerals in our soil. Soil that contained minerals which was transferred into the food that was grown. This in return has produced a loss of minerals in our foods.
I have read more than once, which means I should probably listen, that we have lost so many minerals and electrolytes from our water too. So here are a few pointers that I most recently read from Tosca Reno and wanted to share with you. They are all great tips that I have heard or read more than once from different people.
- To add electrolytes to your water take 8 ounces of filtered water, add a pinch of Celtic sea salt, and 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice.
- To prevent your stomach from making all those uncomfortable noises and movements that scare your friends and family, add 1 tablespoon of raw apple cider vinegar to 8 ounces of water and drink it 20 minutes before you eat.
- Also for those who inhale meals in five minutes, chew your food a minimum of 25 times per bite.
- Oh yeah, and one more thing with the water…. for those of you who ask me if coffee or tea counts as your water intake, the answer is NO! Any time you have a caffeinated drink you need to make sure you drink 1.5 times as much water.
I hope this helps, and maybe you have heard one of these more than once now and will listen!
