Knowing when you’re dehydrated is relatively easy in the summer, you know you’re getting hot and you sweat. Plus, you automatically go for a cool drink or some refreshing fruit when you need a thirst quench to cool off. However, during the winter it’s much harder to tell that you’re getting dehydrated, which makes it more important to stay on top of your hydration in the colder months. Of course, drinking water is crucial, but eating the right foods can also help you stay hydrated. Here are three foods that will help you stay hydrated this winter.
Did you know that green leafy vegetables like spinach are 90% water? Eating more spinach during the winter months is good for your skin and hair, and it will help you retain water. Combine spinach with other leafy greens in a salad for a tasty, hydrating lunch.
Oatmeal is a classic go-to winter breakfast. It’s full of healthy oats, and on a cold morning it will warm you the moment it hits your mouth. It has antioxidants, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Oatmeal will fill you up, keeping you from eating salty and sweet snacks that dehydrate you throughout the day.
Adding yogurt to your diet is an incredible way to keep yourself hydrated in the winter. When you eat low-fat yogurt, you’re adding an ingredient made up of 85-90% water. Whether you add it to your morning smoothie or you eat your yogurt with a little fruit and granola on top, the next time you’re thinking about breakfast, including low-fat yogurt is a great option.In addition to eating hydrating foods, always make sure that you’re drinking plenty of water.
