Healthy And Hydrating Recipes For Summer

June 11, 2015 2 min read

We all know how important it is to stay hydrated but it can become even more important (and more difficult) in the summer. Long days at the beach can dry you out. If you are finding it difficult to drink your water, maybe it is time to eat it. Fruits and vegetables are often up 90% water and adding things like chia (which helps the body absorb water) to the mix makes staying hydrated tasty and fun! Here are some recipes you might want to try:

Breakfast

Triple Layered Breakfast Apple Sandwich A juicy apple is pretty and healthy in this adorable sandwich made with almond butter, chia seeds (another super hydrator!), honey, and dried cranberries. Sub in your favorite nut butter and dried fruit to customize this breakfast. Breakfast Spring Rolls If you aren't into sweet things in the morning, this may be the thing for you!

Lunch

Cucumber-Watermelon Salad With Avocado and Bell Pepper Cubes of watermelon, cucumber, and bell pepper make for an awesomely replenishing bowl. The tequila-spiked dressing takes this light meal to another level. Grilled Eggplant and Zucchini Salad With Feta, Chickpeas, and Mint "Grilled" anything gets my motor running. Eggplant and zucchini are both high in water, and grilling is a tasty alternative to eating them raw. Chickpeas and feta finish it off for a filling lunch.

Snacks

Tropical Kiwi Strawberry Spring Rolls The strawberries, mango, and kiwi in this cute roll-up are tasty and nutritious enough to eat on their own. But sometimes, fun packaging makes all the difference. Wrap up it all up in softened rice paper rounds and dip in honey. YUM! Frozen Grapes That's right. It is that easy and that simple. Pop em in the freezer and beat the heat anytime!

Dinner

Lemony Orzo Pasta Salad With Cucumber and Feta Pasta salad is a picnic table staple. Diced cucumber and lemon juice make this one a super hydrating option. Fish Tacos With Watermelon Salsa Watermelon salsa supplies a sweet touch to the savory flavors of fish tacos.

Dessert

  Coconut Kiwi Popsicles Kiwi is low in calories and sugar, and high in fiber. Coconut water has been known to help replenish electrolytes and sugars after you sweat a lot (in other words, all summer long) . I have been making versions of this for months. Perfect sweet little snack. Beats the heat and keeps you hydrated! Can't get enough of these recipes? Head here, for more. What are your favourite foods for beating the heat?
