10 Ways to Eat Your Water
One needs to consume — daily — a minimum of 4 liters of water to keep the body hydrated and all the skin and digestive problems at bay. Not everyone is comfortable drinking this much water, so you can ingest more water-based foods instead. There are many veggies and fruits that contain a good amount of water to help keep you hydrated.
- CUCUMBER (96% WATER)
Cucumbers contain 96% water, are rich in fiber and minerals, and are cool ???. They make a great treat during the summer, and however you have them – sliced, diced, whole — they will take away your thirst. Add them to your salads or sprinkle them with salt; they taste great any way you use them.
- WATERMELON (92% WATER)
The reason watermelon ranks at the top of the water-filled fruits is that it contains 92% water and the rest is fiber, minerals, and nutrients. Aptly named, it can keep your thirst at bay even during the hottest summer days. Have them chopped with a little salt, or add to desserts, salads, etc.
- SPINACH (96% WATER)
Spinach is rich in lutein, potassium, fiber, and brain-boosting folate; just one cup of leaves contains 15% of your daily intake of vitamin E, an important antioxidant.
- ORANGES (87% WATER)
Oranges are low in calories but full of nutrients such as vitamins A, B, and C, as well as calcium, magnesium, niacin, potassium, phosphorus, manganese, choline, selenium, and copper. This delicious fruit with its tangy flavor and uplifting aroma can prevent dehydration and promote overall health. Regular intake can boost your immune system, improve your skin, promote heart health, reduce cholesterol levels, and fight certain cancers. Have them raw or as toppings on oatmeal, salads, and cakes.
- STRAWBERRIES (90% WATER)
Strawberries are loved by many! They too are rich in water content and won’t be tough to consume because of their appeal and sweetness (provided you don’t grab the sour ones). They are great in smoothies, cakes, oatmeal toppings, etc., and desserts that incorporate strawberries are very popular.
- APPLES (84% WATER)
Apples are a nutritional powerhouse containing important nutrients such as vitamins C and B-complex (riboflavin, thiamine, and vitamin B6), dietary fiber, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, and several phytonutrients. This fruit boosts the immune system, improves digestion, promotes heart health, makes skin healthy, and improves vision. Since apples are rich in water and other vitamins and nutrients as well, they make a great energy booster.
- ICEBERG LETTUCE (96% WATER)
Iceberg lettuce ranks at the top in hydrating veggies/foods thanks to its 96% water content. The sad part, though, is that it’s not very nutritious. Still, you should consider including it in your diet because of its high water and fiber content. It goes very well with chicken, burgers, salads, etc., and with other veggies.
- CELERY (95% WATER)
Celery contains 95% water and is cancer-fighting. Feeling thirsty? Grab some celery stalks and spread peanut or almond butter on it, or dip the stalks into peanut or almond butter. Celery is also good for the pancreas.
- GRAPEFRUIT (91% WATER)
Grapefruit not only contains 91% water but also contains important electrolytes that help prevent dehydration. It is high in soluble fiber and vitamin C, and contains smaller amounts of vitamins A, B-complex, E, and K. Regular ingestion of grapefruit can lower your insulin level, help control your appetite, protect against the common cold, aid in weight loss, make your skin beautiful, and more.
- TOMATO (93% WATER)
Green tomatoes contain 93% water, while red tomatoes contain 94% water, are low in calories, and high in vitamins and antioxidants. Sliced and diced tomatoes can be used in salads, sauces, and sandwiches.
