Rehydration Recipe

Hope you had a fabulous weekend.  It’s been hot, hot, hot here and I was able to go kayaking on Whiskeytown Lake Saturday night; a wonderful evening paddle under a full moon.  Heaven! But on to today’s post.
 After getting a bit dehydrated and feeling sick the day after my little adventure to Glass Mountain with my son and grand kids a couple of weeks ago, I remembered a homemade replacement for
Pedialyte/Gatorade that I wanted to share with you. I volunteered years ago at a wildlife rehab organization and we used this recipe for stressed out, dehydrated fawns and such that were brought in for fostering. I have also given this to my children when they were sick and getting dehydrated due to diarrhea and vomiting.  It’s simple to make, cost-effective, and works!
2 quarts water

2 T sugar
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt substitute (made with potassium chloride)
1/2 t salt

Mix well and store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.  You can drink as is, or add some Kool-Aid mix or maybe some Crystal Light for better flavor.

Thanks for stopping by Two Dogs.  I leave you with a picture of my Jacob’s ladder that is blooming so beautifully.  Have a great week!
