There are other tasty and healthy ways to hydrate aside from drinking a glass of water. Here are 5 of them.
Snacking on fruits is not only healthy eating; it’s hydrating too! Certain fruits like watermelon, strawberries, pears, apples, grapes, kiwi and all citrus fruits, are mostly made up of water, making them great hydration options aside from water.
Eat them up or better yet, add in milk or ice cubes for the perfect smoothie. If you missed it, check out our post on healthy smoothies by clicking here.

Have oatmeal for breakfast.
Oatmeal is “over 90 percent water,” shares Derek Flanzraich, CEO and founder of Greatist.com. And what’s even better is that you can add more hydrating power and flavor to your bowl of oatmeal by splashing it with milk, and tossing in other hydrating fruits like berries.
Aside from keeping you hydrated, oatmeal also works wonders for your digestive system, thanks to all that fiber! Honeyville has lots of oat products. Some are below.

Another healthy way to hydrate this summer is to get some yogurt. Heidi Skolnik, owner of Nutrition Conditioning, said that “yogurt is 85 percent water.” And like oatmeal, you can up hydrating power by adding tasty fruits to plain yogurt or using it as smoothie base.
