Cool Off With These Five Water-Rich Fruits

We know that proper hydration is extremely important to our health. In fact, the common recommendation is eight 8-ounce glasses, but there are more tasty ways to supplement your daily hydration rituals. To cool off this sticky and sweaty summer, don’t just rely on the nearest watering hole. The following water-rich fruits can hydrate and power-snack you through any of your outdoor endeavors.

Watermelon

Water content: 92%

Probably the least surprising natural hydrator of our list, munch down as many slices of watermelon because this melon contains very few calories.

Peaches

Water content: 89%

Switch your apples for peaches and eat them whole with the skin on! These juicy fruits are also easy to add to your diet. Just add to a smoothie, salad, or yogurt.

Tomatoes

Water content: 94%

Eating these off the vine is a unique treat, but if you have to buy from the grocery store add a few extra to your salad or sandwich.

Strawberries

Water content: 91%

Most of a strawberry’s weight comes from water, so cut some up and incorporate them into a salad, wrap, or a smoothie.

Don't stay thirsty, my friends!
