healthy eating: you need water

Sometimes I get too busy going through the daily routine of life that I have forgotten the importance of healthy eating. The last few days, I have been busy with toilet training my boy, shopping for cufflinks for hubby’s birthday, finishing up marketing materials for our events and keeping the house tidy.

Healthy eating requires you to eat a number of nutrients every day. In fact, there are 40 different nutrients you need to ingest in order to keep your body healthy. That’s a lot of nutrients you need to know about! Luckily, you can break down all of these nutrients into smaller categories in order to keep them organized in your mind and make sure you get all of the foods you need.

First and foremost, everyone needs water in order to live a healthy life. Without water, we become dehydrated, and eventually die. You lose water when you sweat and through daily bodily functions, so water must be replenished. Drinking about 8 glasses a day is recommended. Of course, water is found in food as well as in drinks, so you can get your 8 glasses by eating foods like watermelon.
