Now that the warm weather is finally here, it's important to stay hydrated. We've all heard that we should be drinking about 8 glasses of water a day to stay properly hydrated, but according to holistic nutritionist, Kim D'Eon, all of that water doesn't necessarily have to come in a cup.

See below for some of Kim's recipes using the most hydrating foods and be sure to check out Kim's website here
