Staying hydrated all summer in this crazy heat and humidity is not always easy. One can only drink so much water before you feel like there is a fishbowl in your stomach. Fueling up with fruits and veggies that are high in water content can help you meet your goals without feeling overly bloated. I am sharing a few of my favorite ways to stay hydrated.
The Best fruits and veggies to keep you hydrated
These crunchy veggies are low in calories and high in vitamin C and potassium. They are over 95% water. Delicious on their own, in salads or dipped in hummus.
It’s not summer without watermelon. Perfect when chilled or grilled! Known for lowering blood pressure and being high in magnesium and potassium it’s the perfect post workout refuel. Also delicious in salads with cheese.
An apple a day…. Full of fiber and long known for their health benefits. I love mine with dipped in a nice heap of peanut butter. Hydrating and delicious.
Cut up a big bunch to have in your fridge for fast and easy snacking. Full of antioxidants, fiber and water they are a satisfying snack.
Probably one of my all time favorite fruits. Yes they are a fruit! I can’t get enough of the juicy, sweet summer tomatoes. Easily add them to salads or sauces or just eat them plain. Better yet, roast them with a little garlic and olive oil for a fantastic bruschetta topping. I am now totally craving a zesty Gazpacho this weekend.
