Watermelons – when water is in the name, you know it’s the best go-to on a hot day!
Spinach – Along with being packed with nutrients, spinach is a great source of hydration.
Grapefruits – try boosting your smoothies with this delicious fruit!
Peaches – try your peaches grilled, in a salad, or in a fresh fruit tray.

Try some of these easy and hydrating recipes this summer:
In a mason jar or water bottle, add 1 tbsp. organic honey, ¼ C chia seeds, 1 tbsp. organic lemon juice and fill the rest with water. Leave in the fridge overnight and enjoy the next day. Chia seeds are perfect to add to any drink as they retain more water, provide you with water more quickly, and regulate the electrolytes you receive from the drink.
In a small bowl, mix together 1 wedge of organic watermelon chopped, a few cubes of feta cheese, 1 sprig of organic mint, 1 tbsp. Organic lime juice and 2 tbsp. olive oil, and enjoy!
