Hydrate and Eat, Wise-Traditions-Style

Water, essential to all life, keeps normal processes functional. How do you determine your daily intake? The modern-day recom­mendation is to drink six to eight eight-ounce glasses of water every day. But plain water can also deplete the body of minerals. It’s best to add a quarter teaspoon or so of unrefined salt to an eight-ounce glass of water; other good sources of water include salted broth and soup, raw milk and lacto-fermented beverages. And let’s not forget “metabolic” water, which is formed right in the cells when we metabolize fats. Those who consume a high-fat diet don’t need to drink as much water as the experts recommend.

Jocelyne’s Note – Just to clarify when they mention a high-fat diet, we are referring to good fats. See previous post on Good VS Bad Fats. Also previous post on Wise-Tradition diet
