This Refreshing Cucumber Juice Recipe Will Help You Stay Hydrated
Drink this if staying hydrated feels like a chore.
Hydration is important for maintaining healthy skin, keeping your energy levels up, and helping you feel full. (This genius trick can tell you whether or not you're dehydrated.) If you have trouble staying on top of your water intake, hydrating foods can help you meet your goals.
That's where this juice from Colourful Palate comes in. It's made with foods that have a high water content: Strawberries are 92 percent water and cucumbers are 95 percent water. Apples, also hydrating, are high in fiber, vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals. So if "drink more water" is a resolution you tend to struggle with, this is a good start.
