Yummy Fruits & Veggies That’ll Keep You Hydrated All Summer Long



Drinking enough water is a good place to start, but you should also consider eating hydrating foods to keep yourself cool, whether you’re sweating it out on a hike, a walk in the park, an afternoon at the pool, or a nap on your sofa.

Here are eight hydrating fruits and vegetables with high water content to snack on when the temperatures are soaring.


Watermelon is great on its own as a snack, but there are many other ways to eat (or drink!) this hydrating fruit. Add it to a salsa recipe for a sweet-and-spicy topping or dip, or blend it for a frosty drink. It’s also delicious in a salad.



Cucumbers are one of the most hydrating foods available. With about 96% water content, you’ll want to munch on these as often as you can. Fortunately, this fruit (yes, cucumbers are botanically a fruit), has a subtle flavor that makes it versatile.



Jícama can be used in a variety of ways. If you buy it whole at the store, remove the skin first. Then, you can chop the inside and eat it raw — plain or with your favorite dip. Add jícama matchsticks to salads for crunch, or roast it as an alternative to potatoes.



Many different types of lettuce are high in water content, typically around 95%, although it can vary based on the type of lettuce you’re eating. Leafy greens like spinach are also hydrating.
