Happy Aloha Friday, y’all! Today’s post is extra special to me because I have the opportunity to introduce you to Kona Deep, a local company and product that my family loves! I’m a big believer in shopping locally, especially for products I truly enjoy using and that fit into my family’s everyday life, and Kona Deep fits that bill.

We spend a lot of time outside since we are blessed to live in Hawaii, a state with near-perfect weather all year round. Exercising, hiking, going to the beach, and soaking up all of the beautiful Hawaiian scenery are some of our favorite things to do as a family. One of the best things I did after we moved here three years ago was join a mom and baby fitness group after my daughter was born. All of our workouts take place outside, so I haven’t stepped foot inside of a gym in a long time! Couple that with the fact that I’m training for my second half marathon and all of my runs take place with a beautiful view, and I guess you could say that I’m a little bit of a paradise-junkie. 🙂

With all of our outdoor activities keeping us busy and on-the-go, staying properly hydrated is an absolutely vital component of our everyday life. When we’re hiking or exercising in the hot Hawaiian sun,  extra electrolytes are important and I try to find lots of ways to get them in. So, imagine my excitement when I discovered Kona Deep! It’s a deep ocean mineral water that’s sourced 3,000 feet off the coast of Kona, then brought to the surface, desalinated, and bottled at the source. It’s OCEAN water that you can drink, y’all!

What I find super cool about Kona Deep is that their water contains NATURALLY occurring electrolytes. They don’t add a single thing to their water, unlike a lot of other engineered performance waters that add their electrolytes artificially. All you get is pure hydration, and it tastes amazing, too!

One of my favorite ways to drink water is by adding fruit and herbs for extra flavor, so I made some watermelon basil infused water using Kona Deep for an extra delicious experience. I just dump some ice, a handful of basil, and some chopped watermelon into a pitcher then fill it up with Kona Deep. I store it in the fridge while I’m out on a run, then come home and gulp it down. Nothing tastes better or more refreshing after a long run!

There’s even a coupon to save a little money on your first purchase!
