Hydration Challenge .. my personal favourite recipes

How are you going with your Hydration Challenge journey?
Are you developing your habit of drinking your 8 glasses (2-3 Litres) of water a day and are you ready for some hot tips .. and a few cold ones too?

You may be finding that ‘plain old’ water just doesn’t always cut it and you’re a bit desperate for variety. Whether you have joined our Hydration Challenge or not, I understand that it’s important to make the concept of drinking water enjoyable.

So, what thirst-quenching solutions do I have?

Infused waters and hot teas of course!
They’re easy to make, nutritious and refreshing and I have a few of my personal favourite ideas to share with you.

But before we get started, there are a few essentials you should know to make them the best they can be.
1. Choose organic when you can.
2. Wash fruit and rinse herbs to remove chemicals, pesticides, dirt and other residues.

General Tips:
• Citrus and strawberries (softer fruits) an be sliced thick, thin, halved, or quartered.
• Apples (harder fruits) should be sliced thin as they take longer to release flavors.
• Cucumbers, citrus fruits and mint flavour water almost immediately.
• Apples, cinnamon, fresh ginger and rosemary need an overnight soak in the fridge.
• Sliced strawberries start looking waterlogged after a few hours.
• Citrus and whole berries look pretty good even after hours in the fridge.
• It’s best to crush ginger root, rosemary, and lemongrass and tear or crush leafy herbs like mint, basil, and coriander to release their oils.

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.

Try a Chiller2go Fruit Suit!

Our Story

My Chiller2Go story began when I founded Chilled Out in 2012 on a hot summers day in Brisbane, Queensland. It began with a vision to create the Chiller2Go® Fruit Suit®, a neoprene bag plus gel pack for fruit on-the-go, positioning itself as an essential Life:Style accessory for fruit loving peeps and encouraging a fun loving, healthy, adventurous lifestyle!

Things are not always what they seem!

Things-are-not-CM

 

The idea that something may look like one thing, but be much more than what it first appears, totally appeals to me!

We’ve always loved the concept of ‘Things are not always what they seem‘ and our Chiller2Go drink bottles are a great example of this!

Find out why!
