What if the answer to your health crisis was staring you right in the mouth? A survey of 300 British general pracitioners found that one in five patient visits resulted in a diagnosis of dehydration. If this is surprising to you, you’re not alone. Water is something that even the most health-conscious among us can forget to prioritize.

I use it on baked pears and socca pancakes as the base for a creamy maple cinnamon sauce; as a spread for toast with fresh figs and honey; in salad dressings of all kinds (creamy chipotle, herby ranch, and tangy miso-lemon); and in hummus, of course.
