I, your trusty nutritionist, don’t drink much water. That’s because I believe there are lots of things that hydrate you as well (or better) and which also come packed with lots of natural nutrients. New research is showing that getting nutrients in their natural form (as opposed to in man-made supplements) is very important, so here are my favorite ways to hydrate without water:
The water left over when you steam veggies
Low-sodium veggie soup
Vegetables?! Yes! It turns out that these foods are mostly water, with lots of vitamins and minerals attached. That means your big salad is practically a big plate of electrolyte-enhanced water…with a whole bunch of healthy fiber added!
