As the weather warms up, staying cool and hydrated becomes a top priority. While we all love the classic watermelon, Australia has an abundance of hydrating foods waiting to be explored to keep your hydration levels up beyond just drinking water.
At Equalution we preach the importance of staying hydrated with the correct water intake every day. But beyond just drinking plenty of water there is plenty of food you can eat that will also help you this summer.

Say hello to cucumbers, your new hydration heroes. With their high water content and satisfying crunch, cucumbers are a versatile snack perfect for salads, sandwiches, or solo enjoyment. Packed with vitamins and antioxidants, they hydrate and contribute to skin health and overall well-being. They are also a great low-calorie snack to help curb the cravings.
Citrus fruits like oranges, grapefruits, and lemons are summer essentials. Beyond their juicy goodness, these fruits are high in water content and rich in vitamin C. Whether as a refreshing water addition or a zesty salad, citrus fruits keep you hydrated while supporting your immune system.
Embrace the hydrating power of leafy greens, such as lettuce and spinach. Perfect for salads or wraps, these greens not only hydrate but also provide a nutrient boost. Packed with vitamins and minerals, they contribute to your overall health, making them a must-have in your summer meals.
Indulge in the vibrant world of berries – strawberries, blueberries, and more. These little bursts of flavour are delicious and packed with water. Enjoy them on their own, mix them into yogurt, or blend them into refreshing smoothies. Berries bring hydration and antioxidants to the table, benefiting your skin and combating oxidative stress.
Quench your thirst with the tropical goodness of coconut water, a natural electrolyte-rich elixir. An excellent alternative to sugary drinks, coconut water replenishes your body with essential minerals. Whether enjoyed on its own or as a base for smoothies, it’s a hydrating delight straight from nature. Potassium, magnesium, and calcium in coconut water aid in maintaining fluid balance, making it a superb choice to rehydrate and replenish after a day in the sun.
