    'Eat' Your Water: Alternative Ways to Hydrate

    Most people are all too aware that they should be filling up at least eight glasses of water a day from the office water coolers or hot water dispenser, but for some people, the prospect of endlessly taking in drinks is a difficult one, especially if they work on the road! There are, however, plenty of easy ways to incorporate more hydration into your daily routine and 'eating' more water is one of them. Basically, all food has a water content and some foods are primarily made of water, with vitamins, minerals and fibre thrown in for good measure. You'll probably instinctively know what sort of foods these are when you think about it; for example, fruits such as watermelon, apples, berries, pineapple and oranges are made primarily from water. Cucumber, tomatoes, celery, lettuce and peppers also contain high levels of water. If you increase your intake of fruits and vegetables, you'll rapidly notice a difference in how you look and feel! Soups provide another great way to take in more water when the weather gets colder. Avoid using too much salt and opt for low-sodium stock cubes, otherwise the salt will lead you to retain water and feel uncomfortable (and excess sodium isn't good for your health). Try vegetable mixes containing lentils, pea and ham, tomato and bean, minestrone, broccoli and Stilton, coconut and Jamaican cod, chilli bean Mexican soup, carrot and coriander, tomato and basil... the list is endless! With soup, you can drink relatively high levels of water along with other very nutritious ingredients. Plus, classic chicken soup is the archetypal cold cure. One good tip to enjoy soup: put it in a Thermos flask, so you can enjoy it at lunch or sip it if you're out on the road and feeling cold.
