My friend Courtney Clay came up with this super hydrating, nourishing, yummy tasting lemonade that’s quick to make and easy to customize to your desired tastes and nutrient requirements. She calls it Levitation Lemonade. I didn’t ask her why – I was too busy levitating.
This lemonade has been a life saver for us in the over 100 degree heat we get during Texas summers, after workouts, after sweating at my favorite Korean spa, and especially when we were camping and hiking at high altitudes in Colorado this summer.
In the past I’ve gotten altitude sickness very easily (in Colorado and at Yosemite National Park). It’s not pretty. Before my raw superfood adventures I tried to combat the altitude sickness with Gatorade-type electrolyte drinks, water, and Ibuprofen (to thin my blood). While these things helped a little, they didn’t help a lot and I’m just not willing to put that stuff in my body anymore (well, except for the water).
This time, Dan and I drank 1 quart of Levitation Lemonade between us every day (in addition to the copious amounts of water I always drink) and we never experienced ANY altitude sickness. What a blessing! Perhaps the lemonade lifted our insides to the same altitude we had taken our bodies?
When you’re ready to re-hydrate, keep cool, and support your body’s natural inclination to levitation, here’s a basic recipe to get you started:
