Staying Hydrated

Water isn’t just a refreshing thirst-quencher. It’s essential to almost all bodily functions, from lubricating our joints to pumping blood to our heart. Staying hydrated is a key part of maintaining good health. That’s why the advice to “drink 8 glasses a day” has become a familiar mantra. What is the meaning of “hydrated”? Being hydrated simply means that your body has enough fluids to function properly.
How to stay hydrated every day
Choose foods with high water content. If you have trouble drinking fluids, try including water-rich foods with every meal. These include cucumbers, watermelon, lettuce, strawberries, tomatoes and celery.
Keep water with you, always. Having hydration at your fingertips can make it easier to get the right amount of fluids.
Avoid or reduce your alcohol intake. Alcohol is a diuretic, which means it prompts your body to remove fluids from your bloodstream. Limiting alcoholic beverages can help your body hang on to more of the water it needs to thrive.
Change it up. Pure, clean water is the best way to stay hydrated. But let’s face it drinking plain water all day can get boring! Try jazzing up your H2O by adding slices of fresh fruit.
Build hydration into your routine. Making it a point to drink water at certain times each day can help transform it into a healthy habit. For example, consume a glass of water when you wake up in morning, after every meal, and before and after exercise or activity.

Dry Tortugas & Terra Ceia Preserve

Terra Ceia Preserve

This month for our discovering national parks series we were able to choose a local park. We decided we would do one state park and one national park. Our local state park is Terra Ceia Preserve, which is located across the Skyway Bridge. This park’s 2,000 acres encompasses mangrove forests, freshwater and saltwater wetlands, and uplands communities. Much of the preserve is in various stages of habitat restoration that is intended to return agricultural land to its natural and ecologically diverse condition.

We will also be exploring the Dry Tortugas National Park. Dry Tortugas is approximately 70 miles west of Key West. This 100-square mile park is mostly open water with seven small islands. Accessible only by boat or seaplane, the park is known the world over as the home of magnificent Fort Jefferson, picturesque blue waters, superlative coral reefs and marine life, and the vast assortment of bird life that frequents the area.

Please check your calendar for these special activities.

FL State Parks

There are 175 state parks and 9 state trails in the U.S. state of Florida which encompass more than 800,000 acres (320,000 ha)

No Bake Key Lime Pie

No Bake Key Lime Pie

Ingredients:

16 ounces cream cheese (I used 2 8 ounce blocks, softened at room temperature)
14 ounces sweetened condensed milk (1 can)
1/3 cup lime juice (2 large limes was enough for me, but get some extras just in case)
zest of 1 lime divided (leave 1/3 for garnish)
graham cracker crust (10-inch, store bought)

Instructions:

Add softened cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, lime juice and 2/3 of the lime zest to a large mixing bowl, and beat on high until smooth and creamy (about 4 minutes).
Transfer to a graham cracker crust.
Sprinkle reserved lime zest in top, and refrigerate until filling is set, about 3 to 4 hours.
Serve chilled.
