Six Healthy Snacks that Keep You Hydrated

Whether you’re outside playing a game, or enjoying a nice afternoon hike on your favorite nature trail, staying hydrated is crucial especially when the weather gets warmer. But, what happens when you’re feeling parched and you find yourself stuck at your 9-5 desk job? It’s easy to grab that Coke from the vending machine, or pick up the cupcake in the communal kitchen; however, choosing those items over water will arguably keep you more dehydrated. Below, you will find a list of alternative snacks that are filled with fluids and keep you feeling guilt-free throughout the day.

Watermelon

You can dice them or cut into small wedges to create bite size pieces. Pick up with a toothpick or fork to reduce sticky fingers and having to run to the sink to rinse your hands every 5 minutes.

Celery

If you love crunchy textures, celery is the perfect alternative to chips, pretzels, and crackers. Celery is 95% water and filled with potassium and vitamin K and can easily be paired with peanut butter or hummus to add some extra flavor.

Cucumbers

Filled with vitamin B6 and K, cucumbers are refreshing to eat and hydrating to the body, which is why you see a lot of people wearing them over their eyes or in a facial mask. Mix in a salad or eat them alone to get the maximum hydration needed as your day progresses.

Strawberries

This berry is a healthy sweet treat option that’s loaded with vitamin C and Fiber. Throw some into your yogurt or make a nice summer salad with a low-fat dressing to keep you feeling full and hydrated.

Grapefruit

If you’re in the mood for a snack that’s both tangy and citrus flavored, then grapefruit is the perfect option. It not only lowers your cholesterol, but also shrinks your waistline for those looking to lose a couple extra pounds. It’s easy enough to slice it in half and eat it right out of the rind.

Cantaloupe

Both sweet and nutritious, this fruit provides high levels of vitamin A and C, while being a low calorie snack. You can freeze it into sherbet, or puree it, and add it into your favorite smoothie.
