Hydrate W/ Fruits and Vegetables

Updated: Sep 14, 2023

Hydrate with fruits and vegetables... 🍍🍌🍒

Summer is in full swing, and staying hydrated is as important as ever. Are you feeling sluggish? Are you getting frequent headaches? Are you struggling to see progress at the gym? Welp, your hydration status could be partially to blame.

When you are consciously aware of staying hydrated, you probably resort to drinking water. But sometimes the thought of downing 120+ oz of water a day is daunting. Your solution? EAT WATER... yep, i said it. A lot of fruits are vegetables are high in water content. As an added bonus, these foods are typically lower in calories and filling when consumed in large quantities. Check it out...Pineapple is 87% water by volume, and since it is my favorite fruit, i could eat it all day long. Yes, its a little higher in sugar than most people would like, but it is a great way of supplementing your diet with water!

As a general rule, vegetables tend to be lower in sugar (and thus carbohydrates) than fruit. If you're on a carbohydrate restricted diet and want to improve your hydration status through the consumption of food, then err on the side of choosing veggies over fruits. Spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, celery, tomatoes, bell peppers, snap peas, lettuce, and green beans are a good place to start.
