9 Water-Filled Foods That Will Keep Your Body Hydrated


Anyone who has tried to gracefully eat an apple in public and ends up with juices running down their chin knows that apples have a lot of water in them. 

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? 


Having broccoli as part of a cookout platter will give your guests some added hydration, as this cruciferous vegetable is nearly 90% water. 


It may not be watermelon, but cantaloupe, another member of the melon family, is still packed with water. When served chilled, cantaloupe is also one of the most satisfying snacks on a hot day. 


Do you know how carrots look when they get all dried out and sad in the fridge? That’s because they’re mostly water—about 88% water, to be more precise. 


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. 

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. 


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 one cup. A full cup! That’s 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.
