642x361-The_5_Best_Watermelon_Seed_Benefits[1]Summer is here and, although hydration is always important, it can be difficult to drink enough to stay hydrated when temperatures climb.

Fortunately, you can get plenty of fluid through your food – more specifically, fresh summer produce.

Here are a few examples of fruits and vegetables, and their water content:

  • 1 watermelon wedge = 10 ounces of water
  • 1 medium peach = 5 oz.
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries = 5 oz.
  • 1 cup sliced cucumber = 4 oz.
  • 1 medium tomato = 4 oz.
  • 1 cup chopped raw zucchini = 4 oz.
  • 1 ear cooked corn on the cob = 3 oz.

Supplement your hydration and improve your nutrition with fresh summer fruits and veggies.
