Hydration is the key to healthy skin, active digestion and clear thinking. We know it’s hard to down the recommended daily dose of water, but you can still help boost your H2O intake by eating foods with high-water content, such as cucumber, spinach, watermelon and berries.
Below you will find the top 3 hydrating foods. Check out Montauk Juice Factory’s full list at their website.
1. Cucumber (96% Water)
This veggie has the highest water content of any solid food. Toss it in salads, infuse in water or make your own chilled cucumber soup. Simply mix a peeled cucumber with water, avocado, basil and garlic in a blender then puree the ingredients until smooth .
2. Celery (95% Water)
Full of vitamins A, C and K, celery is also calming on the digestive system and nervous system. It makes the perfect snack on a hot summer day: dip it in hummus, spread with almond butter or add to any of your dishes for a little crunch.
3. Radishes (95% Water)
This root veggie has a kick of spicy-yet-sweet flavor and is also a beautifying food! Radishes not only hydrate the skin but are rich in Vitamin C and other compounds that work together to build collagen. Add a burst of color and antioxidants by slicing into summer salads or slaws.
