If you’re feeling sluggish and dehydrated, try these top “recovery” foods to help get your energy back. They come from registered dietician Deborah Tagliareni:
First: Eat watermelon. It’s got “water” right in the name. Plus, it’s full of lycopene, an antioxidant also found in tomatoes. But watermelon has 4 times as much lycopene as tomatoes. So it’s a powerhouse when it comes to preventing and repairing free-radical damage.
Also, eat some cucumbers. Next, to lettuce, they have the highest water content of ANY vegetables! Plus, cucumbers have key B vitamins that support your metabolism by converting carbohydrates into energy.
