The sun is out and temperatures are rising- summer is well and truly here (even in England), and with that comes the need to keep hydrated. What with long, hot runs, countless tennis matches, hours of tanning or just drinking one too many Pimms, it’s very easy to become dehydrated during the summer months.
So, keep some of these water foods to hand- your very own “hydration station”, if you will.
