As we merge into the summer, it becomes more important than ever to stay hydrated and healthy. Then again, it’s not always easy to pound gallons of water all the time, which is why it’s good to have alternatives in your pocket. Indeed, you can actually get a lot of hydration from various foods, and here are some great ones to remember.


There’s nothing like a tasty cantaloupe on a hot summer’s day. Even if it wasn’t a source of hydration, it’s still incredibly delicious. Luckily, cantaloupes happen to also be 90% water, making them excellent ways to keep you hydrated during the summer.


If you ever wondered why the word “water” exists in the word “watermelon”, it’s because this tasty fruit is filled with it! Super refreshing on a hot day and favorites at family barbecues, this is a great way to stay hydrated. The best part, of course, is that it’s about as delicious as ever.


Not many people know that cucumbers actually contain a whopping 95% of water, and perhaps that’s part of the reason they taste so good and healthy. Defer to a nice tasty cucumber if you’re sick of water but need hydration.
