So today I struggled big time. Woke up with the worst headache. I didn't want to move from my bed. Despite drinking a lot more water and powerade zero, I felt dehyrated.
So I increased my salt intake this morning and got a 1.5 liter of Essentia.... and miraculously I feel a lot better.
I am down 18 pounds since starting Keto a little over a month ago and 25 pounds since the beginning of the year (yes, I lost a little before getting on the ketowagon). Can't let dehydration get in my way!! #ketojourney#keto#ketodiet#ketosis#essentia#dehydrated#weightlossjourney#weightloss#water
Dehydrated spinach is a must have in your food storage! Spinach goes bad quickly, but dehydrated and sealed lasts for years. Use in soups and stews, rehydrate in rice, or just add boiling water and eat with a pinch if salt. I love to use dehydrated spinach with banana, mango, and peanut butter or other ingredients in my morning smoothie! Just add water and blend! I never throw out wilted veggies anymore!
Fruit Leathers hit my story this morning and my inbox is full of questions!
The recipe is easy peasy, so healthy and kiddo-approved.
I made a batch of strawberry and a batch of mango and both turned out gloriously delicious!
[Strawberry fruit leather for dehydrator]
3 cups strawberries
1 tablespoon honey or agave, optional
1. Remove the stems from the strawberries and place them in a blender. Drizzle a bit of honey or agave if you want to sweeten them up a bit. This is optional, and if your berries are very sweet, you can skip additional sweetener. Blend until smooth.
2. Pour the strawberry puree onto a dehydrator sheet. Use a spoon or spatula to spread the mixture in a completely even layer. You don't want the mixture to be too thin or too thick - this is where the experimenting comes in to play!
3. Place the sheets in the dehydrator set to 135F degrees for 3-4 hours, until the fruit leather is dry to the touch, and no longer sticky.
4. Cut the fruit leather into strips and roll up in parchment paper. Fruit leather can be stored at room temperature for a few months, although we never let ours sit around that long!
Dehydrated peppers! This might make me sound dumb but I didn't know my Hatch Chiles would turn red if I left them on the bush longer. I randomly got a red one the other day and decided to dehydrate it! It smells really good! The other is my Ghost peppers! I think my husband is wanting to turn them into powder for seasoning!🌶🌶
Reminder to have 2.7-3.7L of water today! Maybe even more since it’s hot out and you’ll lose a lot from sweating 💦
Fun fact: Water from foods account for about 20% of daily water intake 🍎🍊🍐🍒🍉🥝
How to quickly check if you’re dehydrated: Pinch the skin on top of your hand, if it remains up for a few seconds, you’re partially dehydrated. If your skin shoots right back down, you’re hydrated!
What is hyaluronic acid?
This is an extremely important compound found in the dermis of our skin where collagen and elastin fibres are found. It keeps the skin plump and hydrated and helps to protect our collagen and elastin. It is known as a Glycosaminoglycan (GAG) which helps to support the skin. It holds 1000 times it's own weight in water!
Why do I need it?
If you are suffering with tired, dehydrated, ageing skin then this is an absolute must in your skincare routine! It helps to rehydrate and plump the skin within the dermis helping with dehydration lines, fine lines and bring a dewy glow. •
There are a lot of products on the market with hyaluronic acid, which shall I go for?
There is only one problem with hyaluronic acid, it's weight. Many brands that use hyaluronic acid don't seem to take this into account, therefore is too large to be absorbed into the skin. This is when you will find that the product doesn't seem to be helping. By purchasing a good, high quality serum such as @environskincare Hydrating Serum you can be assured that it's molecular weight is small, therefore able to penetrate into the skin much more efficiently. Once on AVST 3, you can use the cosmetic roll cit which allows products to penetrate 10,000 times more effectively, allowing even better penetration!

I'm getting ready for a week-long hiking camping trip and stopped by Costco yesterday for some supplies. People sometimes ask me why in the world I'm a member there when there are only two people at my house. Well, getting bulk produce to dehydrate for outdoor adventures is one good reason. Yesterday I picked up about a gallon of strawberries. I LOVE strawberries, but if I packed fresh ones for camping, they would go bad in about two seconds. Instead, I dehydrated them and now I can have dehydrated strawberries to eat while I'm hiking, and also rehydrate some in the evenings to made strawberry shortcake. Yummm. I do the same with bulk peaches, mangoes, kiwis, and other fruits. Dehydrated food is so yummy and nutritious, plus it's the perfect way to pack good food that won't get smashed or go bad for any outdoor activity. Next week I'll start dehydrating my meals for the trip. #hikingsnacks#campingfood#dehydrated#costco#womenoutdoors#womenhiking#womencamping

Our bodies can’t distinguish between hunger and thirst, often we think we are hungry and go for food when actually it can be a sign you need to get more water on board. If you feel unusually hungry, try having a large glass of water and then waiting a while, if say 20-30mins later your still hungry then you know it is actual hunger. Hope this helps get more water on board as well #nutrition#water#dehydrated#food#beyourbest#goals#weightloss#gnsfitness
