The Water Secret's foods to drink
The great thing about foods with high water content is that they are low in calories and fairly filling. Not long ago, I ate a Greek salad at a restaurant that was mostly heirloom tomatoes. To my surprise I couldn’t finish it. I now know why: tomatoes are about 95% water. The other bonus is that H2o foods tend to be colorful, which is a good sign that they’ll be high in antioxidants.
I had expected fruits to be more watery than veggies for some reason. But not so – with the obvious exception of watermelon. Still, fruits are mostly 80% water. Some recommended water-rich foods that are over 90% water as well as bonus nutrients are:
Watermelon – 25% of your daily intake of vitamin C
Cucumbers - A natural source of silica that will do wonders for your complexion
Tomatoes – Full of the potent antioxidant lycopene
Zucchini - 35% of your daily intake of vitamin C
Cooked chicken breast (65%) – 121% of your daily intake of the amino acid tryptophan, 72% of vitamin B
Boiled red kidney beans (77%) – a great source of folate, a form of vitamin B essential for healthy cells
Chard (97%) – a fantastic soure of iron
Celery – a natural source of sodium, fiber and potassium
Grapefruit – bursting with vitamin C
