Resqwater Makes Hangovers a Thing of the Past

(The above title was just to lure you in. It worked! But we do approve this Boozer’s little helper)

It’s rolling up to weekend time and with the first signs of warm weather arriving we have a feeling there may be some booze and beer in the forecast.

We love to party too but that hangover really puts a damper on things. When we came across Resqwater we were intrigued. The company touts that their product is an anti-hangover drink that is all-natural, gluten free (?) and certified kosher (!).

The key ingredients that sparked our interest are:

Sucrose- Since your body requires a lot of sugar to process drinks, this is a good way to help get that process in motion and reduce the dizzy, disoriented feelings that come with a good hangover.

Prickly Pear Cactus Fruit Extract- Helps decrease inflammation therefore it reduces nausea, lack of appetite and cotton mouth.

Electrolytes- Your body needs these to keep running at it’s best and all those trips to the bathroom can deplete them at a rapid rate.

Milk Thistle- We have been taking Milk Thistle pills for years to help the liver function properly so we were pleased to find the extract in the mix.

The key is to be sure to drink Resqwater during and after your party monster lets loose. Granted, you are not going to carry around this bottle to all the bars, but if you are having a crew over to the house, pass this around between beer pong rounds.

Your guide to the pescatarian diet for healthier living
If you're considering a new way of eating, this may be the perfect diet for you

Are you thinking of changing your diet? If a healthier you is on the to-do list this year, you might consider the pescatarian diet. At its core, the pescatarian diet eliminates all meat except for fish and seafood. Plenty of research tells us eating red meat increases your chances of heart disease and even death by 3% to 7%. The study even suggests that eating poultry twice a week increases these risks by 4%.

You may have heard of the Blue Zone Diet. If you're not familiar, Blue Zones are areas around the world where people live the longest, healthiest lives. The research was conducted by Dan Buettner, a National Geographic fellow and bestselling author. These zones are located in Japan, Italy, Costa Rica, Greece, and California. There are a number of practices you can put in place to follow the Blue Zone Diet if you wish. However, for our purposes, it's simply important to note that the people living the longest and healthiest lives were neither vegans nor meat-eaters. They're pescatarians.

It's that time of year again when we neglect our Dutch ovens, slow cookers, and air fryers for our outdoor char-grilling and smoking devices. It doesn't matter if you're cooking with gas, charcoal, or pellets. The main is you're outside enjoying the nice weather with a a cold beer.

While everyone loves a tasty burger or hot dog, they can get boring after a while. Sometimes, we want to flex our culinary muscles at our grills and for anyone else who may be just hanging around us for the cold beer.
