Water-filled foods that will keep your body hydrated

Burst

Apple

Everyone knows that apples have a lot of water in them. They also have a lot of fiber (3 grams), are a decent source of vitamin C (about 10% of your daily value), and contain only about 50 calories.

Bell peppers

Speaking of vitamin C, did you know a one-cup serving of bell peppers contains three times the amount of vitamin C as an orange? They also contain antioxidants and are more than 90% water!

Burst

Broccoli

Having broccoli as part of a cookout platter will give some added hydration, as this cruciferous vegetable is nearly 90% water. Eating broccoli raw is also the best way to retain its nutrients, which include fiber, iron, and vitamins C and K.

Burst

Carrots

Carrots are mostly water—about 88% water, to be more precise. They’re also a diet-friendly snack, especially when thrown into a salad or dipped into a superfood like hummus.

Burst

Celery

Celery is actually 95% water, which means when compared to carrots, it’s actually an even healthier vehicle for delivering dips, dressings, and spreads to your taste buds. And it’s a good source of potassium and vitamin K!

Burst

Cottage cheese

Although cheese can absolutely be part of a healthy diet, the only variety that’s touted as a weight-loss food is cottage cheese. The secret? It’s 80% water!

Burst

Cucumber

If the idea of cucumber water seems weird to you, just remember that cucumbers consist of 96% water, so cucumbers basically already are cucumber water. It’s actually the wateriest item on this list. Enjoy!

Burst

Grapefruit

Grapefruit has a lot of hydration power, but it’s worth noting that one grapefruit also contains more than twice the amount of vitamin C you need every day and a hefty dose of antioxidants.

Burst

Kale

Kale include, hefty doses of vitamins A, C, and K, as well as protein, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids. But did you know it also contains a high amount of water? In fact, it’s almost 90% water!

Burst

Lettuce

Kale has a lot of water, and so do most lettuce varieties, like iceberg and romaine. In fact, in regard to water content, iceberg is right up there at the top of the list with cucumber.

Burst

Oranges

Oranges aren’t just good for juicing because they taste good; it’s also because they come pre-packaged with water. They also have fiber, antioxidants, and vitamin C, of course.
