Okay, I know that sounds a bit strange, but new studies show 20% of our water comes from foods we eat. Summers coming, and dehydration is a big worry with gastric bypass patients. Choosing high water foods, such as fruit, veggies, and broth-based soups, is a good way to get in the extra fluids we need. Plus, it adds in a vitamin and fiber packed punch!
Here are some good choices:
- Watermelon (Who would’ve guessed, right?)
4 cups cubed watermellon
juice from 1 lime
1 tablespoon honey
1/4 cup ripped mint leaves
dash of sea salt
Put watermelon in large serving bowl. Whisk together lime juice and honey in a small bowl, and pour over watermelon. Add in mint leaves, sprinkle with a dash of sea salt, and mix all together. Serve chilled.
