Hi there darlings, am I the only one or is the heat really getting to us? I started looking for some ways to stay hydrated and found some amazing foods to do so. They’re healthy and tasty! Read along and get inspired.
Homemade they’re the best, but if you don’t have the time try to go for popsicles without added sugar. This ice cold food is one of the best ways to stay hydrated during the summer. Besides, they’re yummie.
Famous among the summer foods I guess. Containing 91% water, with this food you’ll definitely get hydrated. Watermelon also contains a lot of lycopene, an antioxidant that helps fight cancer. Watermelon is also easy eatable. It can go in your smoothies, fruit salads and even in summer cocktails.
Berries provide a decent amount of nutrition and hydration. Especially blue berries and strawberries contain the most water. Just like watermelon, berries are easy addable to water, juice, smoothies and yoghurt.
How about a healthy snack? Cucumbers are perfect hydration material. They contain 96,7% water, which is more than a watermelon contains. You can use cucumbers in your salads, smoothies, sandwiches or just with hummus.
Losing weight and staying hydrated at the same time go hand in hand with grapefruit. This fruit offers you a lot of benefits. Grapefruit keeps you hydrated, consists of fat burning compounds, reduces cholesterol levels and stabilizes blood sugar levels. What more can you ask of a fruit? Try eating this fruit using it in water, juices and salads.
Not my favorite to be honest. But celery is a very good addition to stay hydrated. Besides, celery has a lot of health benefits. Its rich in fiber, vitamin K and vitamin C. Celery helps to keep stomach acid away and is awesome treating heartburn symptoms. If you’re not that much of a celery fan like me, try to eat is with hummus or just use it in your green smoothie.
Spinach is a very beneficial food. It’s high in fiber and potassium and contains a lot of vitamin E. The water content is 91,4% and therefor a food that keeps you hydrated. Try to put some spinach leaves on your sandwich or use it in your smoothie.
With these food you’ll stay hydrated all summer long without any trouble. My personal favorites are the watermelon and cucumbers. What’s your favorite?
Till the next post darlings!
