We all know the importance of drinking enough water throughout the day! What about eating your water? Learn about the foods that have a higher water concentration to help you meet your hydration needs.

You may need up to 10 to 15 8-ounce glasses of water per day to replenish lost fluids and keep your system running smoothly. Depending on your diet, food can actually contribute to your total fluid intake, by emphasizing fruits and vegetables that are water-rich.

Stay hydrated by eating these fruits and
vegetables:

Cucumbers

Celery

Strawberries

Watermelon

Lettuce

Adding fruits and vegetables with high water content also add fiber to your diet as well as a few vitamins and minerals! It’s a win, win!
