Beverages
cold & hot
The regular supply of water is vital for our circulation. Normally we need 2-3 litres of liquids per day, for sporting activities up to 10 litres. This means drinking the best spring water or tap water, thinly brewed herbal teas or still mineral waters. The best drink is pure water. Cola and other industrial soft drinks are not recommended because of their high sugar content and taste additives. All fresh fruit vegetable juices and milkshakes or coctails are not free liquids and therefore not suitable as thirst quenchers. They must first be digested and are therefore to be seen calorically as a snack between meals. They need insulin and this blocks the burning of fat.
Refreshing tap water
Ingredients (1 Liter)
3 Lemons and orange slices
3 minmint or lemon balm branches
1 Liter Tap water
Preparation (5 minutes)
The simplest refreshing drink for everyday life is a glass jug of cold tap water, mixed with 2-3 stems of fresh mint or balm, 2-3 thicker, halved oranges and lemon slices. Pour everything into a large glass jug and leave to stand for 1 hour so that the water takes on flavour. This looks appetizing and encourages you to drink.
You can also take apple slices and fresh ginger.
