It’s been so hot that I’m secretly wishing Fall was here. However, I need to get my act together and be grateful that I can walk outside with just a light cotton dress and flip-flops combo. This is a big deal for someone who lives in the presence of snow for about half of the year. Let’s relish the warm days, breezy nights, and try to soak up as much sun as possible.
Beating the heat means you just have to drink plenty of water and stay hydrated. Let’s take drinking water to the next level, shall we? Create your own Spa Water. Use the colors of the rainbow as your inspiration. Take note, the colors are not all just for looks…
Did you know that the health benefits of fruits and vegetables are sometimes generalized by their colors? Depending on what you want to achieve: healthy skin, boost your immune system, or intake a daily dose of powerful antioxidants; Spa Water can help you attain your health goals. Hmmm… sounds more like smart water if you ask me!
Yellow and orange fruits and vegetables are generally grouped together. More foods in this category: carrots, mangos, cantaloupe, winter squash, sweet potatoes, pumpkins, and apricots.
Other examples of red fruits and vegetables are tomatoes, pink grapefruit, guava, and cranberries.
More green fruits and vegetables: avocado, kiwi, and spinach.
Blue and purple foods: eggplant, blackberries, prunes, and pomegranates

It’s easy to make Spa Water to-go. Just grab your favorite water bottle and add all the healthy goodness into it. Perfect for scorching summer days.
Since I’ve officially signed up for yoga, swimming aerobics, and zumba classes (#yikes #toolatetobackout #notajoke); you betcha I’mma have my Spa Water bottles glued to my hip.
Make sure you stay well hydrated and drink smart!
