I have a little daily routine.
Awaken before the birds, 20 minutes of mindless laptop/coffee/breakfast time in my worn purple bathrobe, hi-ho, hi-ho, off to work I go.
I return in the late morning for a midday break, so as I prep and eat my second breakfast, I flip on the tv to catch a little news or Live with Kelly and Michael banter.
Recently they had on a doctor offering advice on avoiding dehydration. Despite the obvious tips (avoid becoming overheated and too much sun exposure), he proffered up a dubious tip or two, including some toxic sunscreens and a homemade, ahem, ‘hydration cocktail’.
Said hydration cocktail was a pinch of salt (not the good salt), a lot of sugar, and a juicy squirt of something bright red. 🙂
Kelly did her best to keep her composure, but Michael, handsome Michael, just couldn’t hide it.
Please see below evidence:
Kelly, said “my kids would love this”, asked “can I add vodka?”, and “it’s a little sweet, Doc”.
Neither host could believe the sugar content.
That and weird squirt of red inspired me to share with you how I make my own homemade sports drink. It’s tasty and simple. And less expensive than any brightly colored something-ade.
With no gmo’s.
