If you’re looking for something energizing and appetizing to sip on, head to The Corner Spot in Placerville. They offer a wide variety of shakes, teas, and refreshers—all perfect for the sweltering summer months. What makes them healthy? Each shake contains 35 grams of protein and 21 essential vitamins and minerals. They’re also low in calories (between 200-230). Delicious, too! If you’re a chocolate enthusiast like me, try the Brownie Batter Shake. Fancy something fruity? Go with the Blueberry Muffin Shake. Their sugar-free, low-calorie, caffeinated teas, like the Bahama Mama or Fruit Roll Up, are equally enticing. Kid-approved offerings include a Watermelon Jolly Rancher Refresher and Dirt & Worms Shake. For fitness buffs, stop by for a 60-calorie, pre-workout drink with zero grams of sugar and 15 grams of whey protein; then come after your sweat session for a post-workout drink. For a wake-me-up, sip their Protein Iced Coffee (choose from vanilla latte, caramel macchiato, or mocha). Kick it up a notch by adding a Donut Shot Pour Over—a stimulant-free fat burner that literally tastes like a powdered donut. I don’t know about you, but I think it’s a great day when you can find something that’s nutritious and delicious, and The Corner Spot has it!

6 Tips for Staying Hydrated This Summer

  1. Eat water-rich fruits and vegetables like watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe, apples, strawberries, cucumbers, celery, tomatoes, lettuce, bell peppers, etc.
  2. Consume more ice pops, flavored water, milk, broth, cold soup like gazpacho, and sports drinks (during strenuous exercise).
  3. Start your day with two glasses of water.
  4. Avoid alcohol in excess, as it can be dehydrating. Alternatively, for every alcoholic beverage you consume, have a glass of water or coconut water.
  5. Eat oatmeal or cottage cheese for breakfast, as their water content is high.
  6. Employ the help of a hydration reminder app, a soda maker, a smart water bottle that connects to your phone, the “Plant Nanny” app that turns hydration into a game, or a time-marked water bottle to keep things interesting.
