It’s so easy to get dehydrated during summer. We sweat a lot and go out more, and may often forget to drink plenty of water, especially when on the go. That’s why it’s important to pick the foods that nourish and hydrate us, such as the examples we listed below.



Everyone’s first association when it comes to foods with high water content, watermelon offers plenty of fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants as well. Not to mention it’s delicious!


Cucumber contains 95% water and only 5% everything else, but even those 5% are good stuff! It’s great alone, in a salad, or paired with salmon.



There’s no dish more watery than soup. If you’ve been avoiding soups during summer because they’re hot, give them a shot and you may be surprised. Soup is a great way to stay hydrated, as long as there’s no too much salt in it.


Another delicious fruit choice that will keep you hydrated is strawberries. You can use them to make smoothies, ice cream, or simply enjoy them raw.


There are many reasons to love cantaloupe. It’s versatile, can be used in sweet or savory dishes, it’s full of vitamins, and it’s 90% water. It’s the perfect summer food.
