NATIONAL WATER DAY!!!!

Hmm, while not a “food”, water should be a very important part of our diets.  Personally, I try to make it a point to drink 100oz of water a day.  My husband calls me a “wateraholic”, because of the amount of water I drink.  How many ounces of water do you drink a day?

      1. Over 70 percent of an adult’s body is made up of water.
      2. The recommended daily intake of water is 8 cups per day, but it can come through the consumption of food as well.
      3. There’s more fresh water stored under the ground in aquifers than on the earth’s surface.
      4. Drinking too much water too quickly causes water intoxication, caused by reduced sodium (salt) levels in the blood stream.  Some confuse this with a “runner’s high”.
      5. Of all the water on the earth, humans can use about three tenths of a percent of it for drinking water.

My name is Anna Hattauer and I love to cook. I am a personal chef living in Maryland. I grew up in California, joined the United States Army right after high school, got married, raised three children while going to college and working full time. As a young military wife and mother, we didn't have the money to go out to eat on a regular basis and had to make each pay check stretch. I learned how to prepare meals that were delicious, while staying within budget. While working full-time in the corporate world with the usual 2-3 hour I-270 commute, coupled with school & sports events, scouts and taking care of three children, it was tough to find the time or the energy to come home and prepare healthy meals for my family. Being a military family, we have traveled to many places around the world. I love trying new foods, the challenge of cooking new recipes and having friends over for dinner as well as cooking for special events. After cooking for my friends and family for over 25 years, I decided that I wanted to share my love of food and make people happy, so I dropped the corporate chaos and attended a formal culinary school and became a certified personal chef. I am a member of the United States Personal Chef Association and I am licensed, insured and ServSafe certified.
