Keeping hydrated is an important part of staying healthy. Water promotes cardiovascular health, keeps your body cool, helps muscles and joints work better and keeps skin supple. Here is this week’s hydration recipe:
Watermelon Basil Water
2 cups watermelon, chopped
15 leaves basil, muddled
1 gallon of water
Add about 2 cups of finely chopped fresh watermelon (without rind) to a gallon-size glass jar. Add 15 leaves of muddled basil and 1 gallon of water to fill. Store in fridge and allow at least 4 hours to infuse.
Some people view Memorial Day as the start of summer, and celebrate with beers and a BBQ. There is nothing wrong with that. However, Memorial Day is also a day to remember those who were lost serving our country. Take a moment today to appreciate the freedoms we have because of those who fought to keep us free. If you know someone who has lost a friend or loved one, let them know that you are thinking about them today. Even a quick text can mean the world to someone who is missing someone special.
