  2. Tomatoes – There are so many varieties to choose from and they’re all full of water – about 95%! Tomatoes are high in lycopene – a powerful antioxidant, as well as vitamin C.
  3. Watermelon – From the delicious drips that fall off your chin, you already knew watermelon has a high water content – 92%, to be exact. It is also naturally sweet and contains lots of fibre, vitamins A, B6, B1 and C. Enjoy it by the slice or freeze it to make a cool, refreshing smoothie.
