Now more than ever, hydration is critical to staying well during these very hot days. Not only do we need to drink plenty of fluids, we should be eating foods that provide water and choose some simple meals that won’t heat up the kitchen.

Staying ahead of your thirst is the best way to make sure your body is getting the fluid it needs. Once you feel thirsty, you’re already slightly dehydrated. Since the body is 70 to 80 percent water, it stands to reason that water is a life sustaining nutrient on a daily basis — summer or winter. Some common signs of mild dehydration are lack of energy, mild headache, muscle cramps and lack of mental clarity.
