5 Foods That Quench Your Thirst Are a Godsend for Busy Moms

Posted by Kiri Blakeley on May 9, 2012 

Summer is just around the corner (Please?? Hurry!!) and you know what that means. Yep. Lots of sweat. Lots of running around, carrying the groceries in one arm, the kid in the other, with the dog tied around your ankle. It's important to keep yourself hydrated during the soaring temps.

Here's are 5 quick, easy, and quenchable recipes from FitSugar and others that will have your skin glowing, your insides sloshing, and your energy level raging like a white-capped river.

Mexican Fig & Radish Dish. Figs are yummy, healthy, and hydrating. But who knows what kind of dish to put them in? Now you do.

Cucumber and Baked Tofu. I'm a huge tofu fan. And cucumbers are extremely hydrating. The bonus here is that you can use the leftover cucumber skins to put on your puffy eyelids.

Melon Mocktail. Melon is super quenching, and this smooth concoction also contains apple, cantaloupe, and celery. It's a mocktail, which means there's no booze, so feel free to serve it up to the kiddies. And if you want one for yourself after their bedtime, I have one word for you: Vodka.

Watermelon Salad. I personally think there is no more hydrating food on the planet than watermelon. It's got "water" in the name, after all! Add in feta and mint, and I'm off to make this ASAP!

Watermelon & Tomato Salad. Watermelon is so thirst-quenching, I had to add it twice, this time with that absolute staple of summer: tomatoes.

After you make a few of these hydrating recipes, take a swim. You'll never be thirsty again!
