Want better skin… hydrate.
Feeling tired… hydrate.
Want to rev up the metabolism… hydrate.
Hydrating is the answer to everything. It’s basically a cure for all!
However, did you know that in addition to drinking your water you should probably be eating it too! Drinking water helps, but that water travels right through your body. The water in fruits and vegetables are surrounded by molecules that help water absorb deep into your cells, which is essential for staying hydrated.
Here is a list of the most water-rich foods that can help you stay hydrated all day long!
- Cucumber: 96.7% water
- Iceberg Lettuce: 95.6% water
- Celery: 95.4% water
- Radish: 95.3% water
- Tomatoes: 94.5% water
- Bell Pepper: 93.9% water
- Cauliflower: 92.1% water
- Spinach: 91.4% water
Bonus: All of the veggies listed above would make the most hydrating salad. Just add your favorite dressing, and you’re good to go!
Double bonus: All these veggies, (with the exception of iceberg lettuce) contain high amounts of vitamins and minerals so your body receives more nutrients than just drinking water alone.
So go drink AND eat your water!
