No Fast Food Challenge Day #3

You know you've been there. You know it's happened. You're driving around, either running errands or shuttling children. You're thirsty and you take a quick detour through the drive though. Then you figure as long as you're there, you may as well grab a quick snack because you're actually a little hungry, also.

What our bodies don't realize is that many times we mistake thirst for hunger. In fact, according to Dr. Fereydoon Batmanghelidj, M.D.'s book, Your Body’s Many Cries for Water, the thirst mechanism in the body is so weak in 37% of the population, they don't even detect thirst and instead eat when they should hydrate. Those confusing signals can be a challenge especially when in the midst of a "no fast food challenge".


Our solution to staying hydrated is keeping a reusable water bottle with us at all times. Coincidentally, that ties in with today's review and giveaway, as well. I've worked with the folks from Reuseit before because I truly respect their mission. They are one of those companies that truly walks the walk and I'm very proud to be able to work with them.

When I was approached for the opportunity to do a product review, the first item I chose was their glass water bottles. Then when I committed to the "No Fast Food Challenge", I knew I could tie both topics together. I had owned a glass water bottle previously and alas, it broke. What is great about the Takeya glass water bottle is the silicone sleeve protects it against breakage. How clever! I also appreciate the wider opening, because so often small bottles with smaller openings are really difficult to clean.

I love drinking out of glass. I have a hard time drinking out of steel because I can taste the metal, and plastic tends to absorb a soapy flavor after too many washings. Additionally, the glass water bottle is dishwasher safe and comes with a variety of different colored sleeves so every member of the family can have their own bottle.

Reuseit has been endorsed by Oprah, National Wildlife Federation and Treehugger.com for their companywide commitment to the environment. On a personal level, we endorse them not just as customers but also as an affiliate. It is truly an honor to work with this company.

Reuseit has agreed to host a giveaway for our readers to receive one of the same glass bottles pictured above. In order to qualify, please check out their Facebook or Twitter pages and leave a message that Our Daily Green or FreshGreenKim sent you. Once you do that, please leave a comment in the comment section of this post, so I know who is entered. If you do not leave a comment, your entry is not complete. The giveaway ends on February 6, 2013, at midnight EST. One winner will be selected from these comments.

disclaimer: Our Daily Green received a complimentary glass water bottle to review for this post. Nonetheless, I am resisting the temptation to tell you that I now drink like a fish. I will simply state that hydration is great and helps quell imaginary hunger pangs.
