Have you heard? 8 glasses of water a day. Fortunately this is 2018 & we’re embracing the notion H20 can be found on plates too. How? Well your Brita doesn’t have to be your only watering hole. Let’s talk about EATING your way to hydration.
We’ve all heard the old adage of, “Drink 8 glasses of water per day.”
For whatever reason, we’ve never been water drinkers and have to force ourselves to drink water. We have to give myself goals, like finishing at least 2 large bottles per day. It’s pathetic, really.
A movement we can definitely get behind is EATING water. We like anything that has to do with eating, so needless to say we were intrigued when we first heard this term.
It’s actually ridiculously simple. It basically means, eat some raw vegetables and fruits as part of your normal diet...because a lot of them are made primarily of, you guessed it, water!
We should all be eating more fruits and veggies anyway, and a lot of them have huge nutrient benefits when you eat them raw - especially veggies.
Some examples of water-dense fruits and veggies are cucumber, celery, radishes, tomatoes, green peppers, cauliflower, watermelon, spinach, strawberries, broccoli, grapefruit, cantaloupe, and so many more.
Next thing you know we’ll be suggesting you drink your veggies...oh wait...
