People from all walks of life can experience heat exhaustion—from athletes, to joggers, to those just working their garden! Hot humid Louisiana days can cause your body to overheat and break down. These foods will help you stay cool!

  • Cucumber

Cucumbers are 95% water, so you’ll have the added hydration benefit. Cucumbers are low in calories too, so if you’re sweating it out to stay fit they’re perfect.

  • Watermelon

Not only delicious and full of H20, USDA researchers have found that watermelon even stimulates the release of excess perspiration!

  • Pomegranate

Loaded with water, and also rich in antioxidants (more than red wine or green tea). Adding pomegranates to your routine will hydrate as well as detoxify!

  • Kiwi

Kiwi is a juicy fruit that not only aids in fluid levels, it also contains 237 mg of a very important electrolyte that is necessary for muscle function: potassium.

  • Celery

96% of this vegetable is purely water. What’s cooler is it can replenish a realm of vital minerals including sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorous, iron, and zinc.

  • Fresh Fish

Fish’s essential omega-3 fatty acids assist the part of the brain that controls body temperature, hunger, and thirst.
