Warm weather and sunny days invite us to spend more time outdoors. For foodies, this means it’s picnic season! When planning a picnic this summer, whether you’re going to the beach, park or just enjoying time on your patio, don’t forget to focus on hydration. The body is predominately made of water, between 50-75% in fact and our body is at an increased risk for dehydration during warm weather. Signs of dehydration include fatigue, difficulty making decisions, headache, a slow sluggish metabolism and feeling on edge. That being said, staying properly hydrated is key for optimal health!
Beyond drinking water, one great tip to stay hydrated is to eat water dense foods such as fruits and vegetables. When planning your next picnic, try this hydrating and healthy picnic menu below!
