20% of the water your body needs comes in the form of food. Do you know what foods help keep you hydrated?
Summery fruits. They are the best foods to prevent dehydration. Remember that melon or watermelon are made up of almost 95% water. Also, they are very versatile: almost all seasonal fruits can be used in fruit salad, salads, and cold soups.
Green salad. ” Green leafy vegetables, such as lettuce or spinach, are great allies because they have similar percentages of water to those of fruits. Celery is another vegetable with high water content,” explains Natalia Galán, nutritionist at Blue de Sanitas
Rice and yogurt. If you need an excuse to eat paella, use the hydration boost. When cooked, this food accumulates up to 70% water. And for dessert, yogurt, which facilitates the absorption of water in the intestine.
