What does healthy mean to you? For some women, it’s working out 6 days a week (that woman is not me), and for others it’s drinking enough water and trying to eat healthier foods. Living with a fiance who eats healthy doesn’t hurt, either- our cabinets are usually only stocked with healthy foods and maybe a snack or two for the cheat days. The two ways I can easily live a healthier lifestyle is staying hydrated and incorporating more veggies in to my life. To ensure I drink enough water, I fill my water tumbler each morning at work and drink it throughout the day, refilling multiple times. But sometimes drinking plain water can be boring, and that’s where DripDrop comes in.

DripDrop is a great-tasting oral rehydration solution (ORS) that prevents and treats mild to moderate dehydration. It comes in powder packets that you mix with water. DripDrop is located in the baby aisle, and is easy to find at your local CVS (if I did it, so can you). And no, it’s not just for babies or children, it’s made for anyone who wants to stay hydrated. DripDrop is proven to hydrate 34% more effectively than water alone.

You’re probably wondering, “But how does it taste?” I’ll admit I was a skeptic at first, having tried my fair share of powder-in-liquid products only to be disappointed by the chalky texture and taste. I picked up the berry flavor and it was great. The best way to describe it is a mixture of fruit punch and Gatorade watered-down a bit.

There are a variety of other ways to drink DripDrop. For those who exercise a lot, it’s a great refueling drink after a workout (it has 2-3 times the electrolytes of sports drinks). If you feel dehydrated after a sickness or cold, it’s a safe, medical-grade solution to that as well. And although I don’t have kids myself, I know that having this tasty drink option as a child would have encouraged me to drink more water. If you’re interested, you can print out this digital coupon for DripDrop to try the product out for yourself (while supplies last 1/25/15-2/21/15 ).

In addition to staying hydrated, I try to eat more vegetables to be healthy. Luckily, I enjoy most vegetables, so it’s not that much of a pain. I’ve found making my own salads not only keeps me healthy, but also saves time and money. Below is my lunchtime staple: mixed greens with a variety of veggies: celery, carrots, onions and then I add a hard boiled egg for protein and sunflower seeds and dried cranberries for added taste.

  1. Oh girl – I am not one who can work out 6 days a week either! 3-4 max, I try to be healthy by drinking water and eating fresh fruits and vegetables, and limiting my sodium intake! I’m not perfect though. DripDrop sounds awesome – I’ll have to check it out!

  2. I got through these insane phases of drinking so much water I am about to explode and spend my entire day peeing. Then I avoid touching water for like six months. I need to get on this!
