WATER FACT 1
70% of the body is water, and water acts as a natural appetite suppressant
and helps to regulate your metabolism.
WATER FACT 2
Our metabolism increases by 30 percent after drinking 2 cups of water.
When you become dehydrated, your metabolism slows down,
affecting how your body burns fat.
WATER FACT 3
Most of us do not consume enough water throughout the day.

Twelve warning signs of DeHydration!

It’s surprisingly easy to become dehydrated if you don’t drink enough water. Once dehydration has set in, the body slowly begins to shut down, eventually causing problems. Fortunately, your body will tell you that you’re dehydrated by displaying one or more of the following warning symptoms.

1. DRY MOUTH
A dry mouth is an early sign of dehydration that typically also includes dry or cracked lips.

2. THIRST
This sounds pretty obvious, but when you’re dehydrated, you become thirsty. It’s just your body’s way of urging you to drink. On average, a woman should drink about eight glasses of water a day and a man should drink about 12 glasses of water a day.

3. FATIGUE
Fatigue is a common sign of dehydration. If you feel tired after exercise or sluggish in the afternoon, it may be because you haven’t had enough to drink.

4. FLUSHED SKIN
If you notice that your skin is flushed, it may be a symptom of dehydration. Of course, remember that you would be naturally flushed if you have just been exercising or been out in the sun.

5. HEADACHE
Many headaches are caused by dehydration, so if you feel a headache coming on, drink some water immediately.

6. DIZZINESS 
Feeling dizzy can be a symptom of severe dehydration and is usually caused by a lack of blood to the brain. Drink water immediately.

7.  LACK OF CONCENTRATION
It’s called “brain drain.” The moment you feel thirsty, some of the brains most important functions go haywire … from the way you feel to the power your mind has to process info and memories.

8. MOOD SWINGS
If you find yourself feeling down in the dumps or snapping for no reason, it may be because you are dehydrated. Try drinking some water to see if it makes you feel better.

9. NAUSEA
When you are nauseous, you usually don’t feel like ingesting anything, but when it comes to dehydration, ingesting fluids is very important. Nausea is also a common warning sign for pregnant women who are dehydrated.

10. SKIN ELASTICITY
Normally, when you pinch your skin, it moves back into place once you let go of it. But if you have poor skin elasticity, your skin will take longer to go back into place. Doctors may do this test when identifying a patient with dehydration.

11. CONSTIPATION
Constipation is another common symptoms of dehydration. In children and adults, this means going eight or more hours without urinating.

12. DARK URINE COLOUR
The best indicator of dehydration is the color of your urine. Ideally your urine should be clear and if it isn’t, that means that you haven’t had enough water. The color of your urine will actually tell you how much you are lacking. Whether your urine is a dark yellow or a pale yellow, if your urine isn’t clear, it’s time to sip on a water.

On average, an adult should be drinking 2-3 Litres of water a day. If you have one of my 700ml Chiller2GoDrink Bottles, that’s around 3 full bottles a day. Too easy!

Note that if you exercise regularly you will need to top this up.

    • Choose a cool, bpa free drink bottle and a drinking glass. TIP: for some reason drinking through a straw will help you drink more because you will take sips without thinking.

  • DO NOT drink all the water at once

Hydration matters .. and Chiller2Go knows it!

Did you know hydration is one of the key foundations of good health?

Hydration matters
Most adults lose about 3 litres of water a day. Most of us also don’t drink enough to replenish what we lose and not only is it vital, it keeps our skin in spanking condition, carries nutrients and oxygen to cells, and can also even help us lose weight.

We believe the first step and the simplest way to a healthy life is to carry a drink bottle with you to stay hydrated! So we say, up the ante on your water intake and have a Chiller2Go Drink Bottle with you wherever you go!

FACTS ABOUT OUR CHILLER2GO TRITAN™ DRINK BOTTLES

Our Chiller2Go Drink Bottles are made from BPA Free Tritan™. Whether you drop it, throw it in your backpack or wash it hundreds of times, a product made with Tritan™ lasts. Tritan from Eastman is a durable plastic that has much greater shatter resistance than other plastics and glass. It won’t warp or crack in the dishwasher. And, unlike stainless steel, Tritan won’t dent or ding.

CLARITY
Tritan™ plastic looks like glass, until you drop it. And while other clear plastic or stainless products lose their luster after repeated dishwashing — our drink bottles have looks that last.

SAFETY
There might be some confusion as to the true safety of plastics claiming to be BPA-free, but we want to set the record straight. Not only is Tritan™ a BPA-free plastic, it doesn’t contain bisphenol S or any other bisphenols. Combine that with shatter resistance, and you’ve got a tough plastic that is safe enough to trust with your family.

WATER FACT
It’s said that drinking water before meals can help you loose weight. Just knowing that drinking up can help you eat less should be enough motivation to keep a drink bottle handy!

If you don’t have a drink bottle you love, it might be time to get one! Choose a healthy lifestyle and give your body what it needs … a Chiller2Go Drink Bottle!

Cheesy Corn Fritters Recipe

See the lovely cheesy corn fritters recipe to inspire you to introduce more vegetables to your day on day 4 of National Nutrition Week!

Did you know that less than 4% of us eat enough vegetables on any given day?

In fact the average Australian only eats around half their recommended daily intake.
One great way to Try For 5 serves of vegetables a day is to make that sure half your meal contains vegetables. This way you’ll enjoy around 3 serves of vegetables in one meal – that’s already more than the average Australian eats in a day! Try for 5 … with a healthy balanced meal.

 

 

Cheesy Corn Fritters Recipe

5 MIN – Prep Time // 25 MIN – Cooking Time

 

Ingredients

2 eggs

410g can creamed corn

1 ¼ cups coarsely grated tasty cheese

2 green shallots, finely sliced

1 cup plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 cup baby spinach leaves, finely chopped

Sea-salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper, to season

8 Tbsp Cobram Estate light extra virgin olive oil

1 avocado, peeled, stoned, diced

Juice of ½ lemon

¼ cup basil leaves

Fried eggs, to serve (optional)

Crispy bacon, to serve (optional)

 

Method

Combine eggs, creamed corn, tasty cheese and shallots in a large bowl. Sift in flour and baking powder and stir until just combined. Stir in spinach leaves then season.

Heat 2 tablespoons of the Cobram Estate light extra virgin olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. When oil is hot, add ¼ cup of batter to pan and smooth with a teaspoon to slightly flatten. Repeat to make 3 fritters. Cook for 3 minutes each side or until golden and cooked through. Remove from pan.

Repeat step 2, three more times with remaining oil and batter to make 12 fritters.

Toss avocado, lemon juice and basil together in a medium bowl.

Serve fritters with avocado mixture for the perfect brunch or light well balanced meal.

 

Try For 5 Vegetables Challenge with National Nutrition Week

Why not challenge yourself to eat 5 serves of vegetables every day during National Nutrition Week! 

 3 great ways to add vegetables to your day are:

1. Eat a rainbow

Have a bunch of different coloured vegetables every day during National Nutrition Week to get the max variety of beneficial nutrients, PLUS you’ll love the variety of tastes and textures!

2. Try something new every day

Try a new vegetable, a new recipe, or try eating vegetables in a way that you don’t normally eat them. Or get more bang for your buck by using up ageing veggies, and eating the parts that you usually throw away!

3. Love your legumes

Did you know that 2016 is International Year of the Pulse? Or that legumes are in the vegetable AND protein food groups? Pulses, beans and legumes are a cheap and versatile source of fibre, protein plus many other important nutrients.

What’s in a colour?

RED

Red fruits and vegetables are coloured by a natural plant pigment called lycopene. Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant that can help reduce the risk of cancer and keep our heart healthy.

PURPLE /BLUE

The plant pigment anthocyanin is what gives blue/purple fruits and vegetables their distinctive colour. Anthocyanin also has antioxidant properties that protect cells from damage and can help reduce the risk of cancer, stroke and heart disease.

ORANGE/YELLOW

Carotenoids give this group their vibrant colour. A well-known carotenoid called Betacarotene is found in sweet potatoes, pumpkins and carrots. It is converted to vitamin A, which helps maintain healthy mucous membranes and healthy eyes. Another carotenoid called lutein is stored in the eye and has been found to prevent cataracts and age-related macular degeneration, which can lead to blindness.

GREEN

Green vegetables contain a range of phytochemicals including carotenoids, indoles and saponins, all of which have anti-cancer properties. Leafy greens such as spinach and broccoli are also excellent sources of folate.

BROWN/WHITE

White fruits and vegetables contain a range of health-promoting phytochemicals such as allicin (found in garlic) which is known for its antiviral and antibacterial properties. Some members of the white group, such as bananas and potatoes, are also a good source of potassium.

Sharing the move to wellness with Chiller2Go

Life can be complicated … but one change we can easily make is a move to wellness.

For me it was a natural decision to go back to basics and keep life simple. For instance, water quenches my thirst better than anything else and so I drink lots of water all day! Fresh fruit and crunchy vegetables make an awesome sugar free natural snack and so I make sure I only have these natural healthy snacks around me to keep my blood sugar up and my concentration level at its peak.

Add a healthy lunch and a healthy dinner and voila… you have an easy well rounded eating regime.

The most difficult thing about changing your habits is getting through the first few days. Once you’re through those, you’ll wonder what the big deal was. BUT if you do slip up, don’t be too hard on yourself. Give it a serious go again and get  back on track.

My motto is KISS …. ‘keep it simple’ (silly)

Chiller2Go .. its a Life:Style decision.

Does your school do Crunch&Sip®?

CRUNCH & SIP 1If yes, you know you have to pack a healthy fruit or vegetable snack for your child to eat each day. It’s easy to get stuck in a rut packing the same Crunch&Sip® snack day after day.

 

A Chiller2Go® Fruit Suit® variety pack is a great idea for the following reasons:

  • It will help your child to eat a rainbow of fruit and vegetables that are kept chilledand protected from bumps and bruises.
  • It will enable you to introduce new fruit or vegetables alongside familiar or more accepted ones
  • the Chiller2Go Fruit Suit is visually appealing!

TIPS:

  • Try to include two or three different kinds in each Fruit Suit, maybe one unfamiliar alongside one or two choices your child already loves.
  • Pop the frozen gel pack in the base of your Fruit Suit and try packing a combination of small whole pieces like an apple, banana, pear, cherry tomatoes, baby carrots, grapes, apricots or plums.
  • This is a great way to increase the variety of fruit and veg your child eats, plus it makes your job very quick and simple.
