Stay Well Hydrated with Watermelon

Staying well-hydrated is especially important during the summer months.

In addition to normal body functions, higher temperatures draw more water through perspiration, so consciously replacing your fluid content becomes essential for overall health.

What many people don’t realize is that beverages aren’t the only way to hydrate your body.

In fact, water-dense foods such as watermelon can also boost your hydration.

Sweetly flavored, low-calorie watermelon is 92 percent water and offers several nutrients along with the cancer-fighting antioxidant lycopene.

And honestly, I’m SO happy that watermelon season is back in full force.
