Your Most-Asked Questions About Nutrition: Easy Ways to Stay Hydrated

Your body needs water to survive and thrive, so it’s important to make sure you are staying hydrated by drinking enough.

Try these tips to increase your water intake: 

  • If you like the taste of plain water, carry a reusable water bottle and track how many times you fill it throughout the day. 
  • If you don’t like the taste of plain water (or want to switch things up), try flavoring water or seltzer with sliced lemon, lime, cucumber, mint, or even frozen berries. Unsweetened herbal teas like mint or hibiscus are refreshing when iced. You can also lightly sweeten teas with a little honey when hot, then cool them over ice.  
  • Eat more foods that contain water: think brothy soups, yogurt, or “juicy” fruits and vegetables like melon, berries, lettuce. Eating these foods is not a substitute for drinking water, but they can help you stay hydrated.  
  • Drink most of your fluids early and throughout the day so you’re not trying to drink a lot late in the evening or at night—this can help lessen the chance of late-night trips to the bathroom.

Try the Mint & Hibiscus Tea

Hibiscus and mint make a tasty combo. Hibiscus’ tartness can neutralize any bad taste from chemo drugs and offers vitamins, while mint aids digestion. Plus, this tea is delicious hot or cold.
