EFNEP Recipe of the Month: Flavored Water
After the long cold winters here in Maine, the summer sun is a welcome sight and feeling. Many of us are out enjoying the beaches, lakes, mountains, and sports camps. With the hot weather comes the need to stay hydrated, and drinking plenty of fluids is important all year long, but so much more so in the heat. General guidelines state that it is important to drink eight glasses of water a day, as this will keep the average person doing average activity adequately hydrated throughout the day. Remember, if it is hot or if you are staying active, you may need to drink more water throughout the day. Here is a great recipe for Flavored Water that is very refreshing and enjoyable on hot summer days.
