Do you find yourself saying I want to drink more water, or I don't drink nearly enough water ... or I just don't like water?

Although water is important to drink in order to maintain our hydration status, there are other ways to get more water in without relying only on drinking straight water. One of the best is through foods that have a high-water content.

This summer is hotter than it has been in years, and staying hydrated keeps your body healthy and cooler. Here are a few delicious foods that have a high-water content plus recipes to enjoy them.

1. Cucumbers

2. Strawberries

3. Watermelon

4. Tomatoes

Interested in how much water your body needs to run smoothly? Here's a great article from the Mayo Clinic that gives you the run-through.

Also, did you know that you're going to need to drink more water when you're outside, even if you're not drenched in sweat? Our sweat usually evaporates before we feel sweaty, so grab one of these fun drinks (and sunscreen) and enjoy the outdoors this summer.
