We’ve discussed before why staying hydrated is integral to good health.  Drinking plenty of water is essential, but you can also add to your hydration intake with fruits and vegetables that have a high water content.  Foods high in moisture are also usually low in calories and high in fiber, so they can help keep you full and maintain a healthy weight.  Here’s a list of some foods you eat to keep you hydrated while soaking up the last of the summer sun!

  • Watermelon (well, duh)
  • Other melons
  • Celery
  • Cucumbers
  • Grapefruit
  • Grapes
  • Oranges
  • Peppers
  • Radishes
  • Salad greens
  • Tomatoes

Yum, this sounds like the beginnings of a great summer salad!  Why not try topping it off with this creamy Tofu Goddess Dressing from Cookus Interruptus?
