Just because the weather is cooler doesn’t mean that the risk for dehydration is any less. Signs of dehydration include dry mouth, infrequent urination, dizziness, fatigue, dry skin and dark colored urine. Staying hydrated doesn’t mean you have to chug bottles of water. There are many foods that have a high water content such as oranges, lettuce, watermelon, peppers and cucumbers. This salad is easy, filling and great option anytime of the year. Because cucumbers are 95% water, they keep the body hydrated while helping the body eliminate toxins. And if you leave the skin on, you get a boost of vitamin C.
