In the morning, I usually hydrate while my daughter has her breakfast. It is a cozy routine because it allows me to be doing something for myself while being present in my daughter’s morning, too. Lately I have been drinking hot water with ginger and turmeric. Turmeric has a ton of health benefits, most important in my opinion being that it is inflammatory. Hydrating your cells first thing is also a great way to start your day! Makes One Mug.
Boiled water — we have an amazing Aquasana water filter that I use for all my water, hot and cold.
