Expert reveals best foods to stay hydrated

14th Jul 2022 - 04:00
As the heatwave continues it’s important to keep hydrated and recipe development manager Mimi Morley from HelloFresh has provided tips on the best foods to keep you hydrated.

There are plenty of foods that contain high water content to help keep you hydrated. If you’re looking for a cold dish to enjoy in the sun, make sure to jam pack your salad bowl with lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes and bell peppers, as these all feature high water content, as well as packing plenty of flavour into your dish. 

Alternatively, for a warmer dish, soups and broths are ideal for hydration and vegetables like cabbage and cauliflower are the perfect additions for added water content. 

For a delicious summer snack, I’d recommend creating kebab sticks full of your favourite fruits and dipping them in plain yogurt. Plain yoghurt and fruits such as, grapefruit, strawberries, oranges and peaches are the perfect foods that contain high water content and will keep you hydrated to get you through the heatwave.

Best recipes to keep you hydrated according to HelloFresh:

  • Smoked salmon, avocado and tomato salad
  • BOL sweet potato, lentil and cauliflower soup
  • Aubergine parmigiana salad
  • Cheesy spicy cauliflower nuggets
  • British summer salad
