We all know we should drink no less than eight 8 ounce glasses of water each day, but sometimes that can be difficult to get in. Luckily – there are an abundance of OTHER ways to get your hydration on! The list is long – but my time is short, so I am sticking with 5.
Of course this depends on the brand – but tomato sauce can actually be about 90% water! Additionally – it contains roughly 50 calories for 1/2 cup – so drink up! Okay – so not really drink up – but eat up and be hydrated!
I know you want a big glass of spinach juice instead of water – ha! Spinach is so super hydrating AND with only 7 calories for a full cup – who can pass this up? That same amount will also provide half your daily Vitamin A. Can you say perfect? Throw a handful or cup into the blender and make a smoothie – even better!
Seriously….is there ANYTHING this fruit can’t do? They contain tons of water – so eat up and enjoy the 47,000 benefits of this super fruit!
The fun guy of the group – sugar-free jello has few calories, is sweet and oh-so-fun to eat – all while keeping you hydrated! The gelatin isn’t too bad for your joints either.
Duh! BUT – did you know that a recent study from University of Aberdeen Medical School found that the combination of salt, water, minerals and natural sugar actually hydrates better than water or even sports drinks?? Hmm….neither did I – which is exactly why it made my short list!
So if you find yourself feeling a little dehydrated and water isn’t convenient or available – you now know you have some yummy alternative options! Enjoy! If you know of any others, comment below- I love hearing what you have to say!
