Just for a body to survive, we require lots of fluids; we can go without food longer than we can go without water. Getting enough fluids and staying well-hydrated, especially in summer, can be difficult for some folk. Of course, we all know that the best fluid to drink is water, but what are good alternatives if you don’t like water? Or don’t like the water where you live?

See our tips to stay hydrated on the next page. Plus Dara at CookinCanuck, who’s recipe we have today, has some tips on staying hydrated. (Including one unlikely source – at least to my mind! Check out her website to see.)

Dara finds drinking enough fluid a challenge and frequently cuts back when she knows she has to go out. She laments the fact her son’s soccer field has no public facilities and I had to laugh when she said …

Going to the bathroom in the bushes at the edge of the soccer field (why, oh why aren’t there bathrooms at fields?) sounds as appealing as eating a picnic beside a garbage dump. So, I cut myself off from water a couple of hours before leaving the house.
