Thirsty Thursday with Tea Verde

I cannot believe it’s already Thursday! The days are FLYING by because of this pregnancy. I am choosing to focus on what I can and be happy with what I am able to accomplish every day. The weather is beyond hot, hot, hot here so that plus being pregnant has me constantly thirsty. I always have a big bottle of water with me not only because I am thirsty but one of the kids are as well. Lately, I’ve been loving fruit infused water and teas. My midwife has kept me stocked with tea during my pregnancy and now that I am at the end, I have tea for prepping my body for labor. Because I am always on the go, I have really leaned on products like this bamboo infuser tumbler from Tea Verde. Ya’ll know how much I love Amazon shopping so when I found out this was available via Prime, it made me SO excited.

The Tea Verde bamboo infuser tumbler is for tea and fruit infused water. Two of my must haves right now! I love adding my pregnancy tea to this in the tea infuser basket and strainer. It keeps all the tea ingredients from getting in your mouth when you’re drinking. I also use it to cut up lemons, strawberries and cucumbers to infuse my water. The kids love drinking out of this when I infuse water, they are not big fans of my pregnancy tea! This bamboo tumbler is food grade stainless steel which makes it non toxic and durable. The exterior is made from organic and natural bamboo and looks really nice! The quality is so nice and I’ve had several compliments on it when we are out and about because I tend to take it everywhere! The stainless steel interior keeps my drinks call for 24 hours and hot for 12. Although, I’m not a big coffee drinker right now, I know that the keeping coffee hot feature will come in handy after the baby comes. It’s a 17oz bottle so it’s not to big to fit into a cup holder in the car or to heavy when you are holding it. All together, it’s become one of my favorite products right now!

If you are in need for a new tumbler, head over to Amazon and check out the Tea Verde brand! You can use code: Tumbler10 for 10% off of your purchase and take advantage of free shipping through Prime. I highly suggest investing in one so you can keep yourself hydrated because hydration is key for our bodies to function properly. This is crucial, because dehydration can seriously impact not just physical well-being, but mental well-being as well.

While water isn’t the only factor when it comes to staying hydrated, it does start with water. Your No. 1 goal should be to start drinking half of your body weight in ounces of water a day.

This isn’t about strictly how much water you to take in, either. It’s just as much about how much fluid leaves your body as well.

In fact, according to extensive research, “under normal circumstances of diet, exercise and climate the minimal urine output for healthy subjects is about 500 ml/day.” This is to help detoxify the body and even naturally prevent kidney stones, as well as just proper maintenance on the digestive system. The study recommends men drink around 3,000 milliliters of water a day and 2,200 for women — though this varies according to body weight, as I mentioned.
