With a heatwave expected to hit the UK next week, it’s important to keep hydrated. Recipe Development Manager Mimi Morley from HelloFresh has provided expert tips on the best foods to eat to keep you hydrated.
‘Plenty of foods 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 pack plenty of flavour into your dish.’
‘Alternatively, soups and broths are ideal for hydration for a warmer dish 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 yoghurt. Plain yoghurt and fruits such as grapefruit, strawberries, oranges, and peaches are the perfect foods with high water content and will keep you hydrated to get you through the heatwave.’
Here are some of the best recipes to enjoy to keep you hydrated during the heatwave.
