Most of us can live weeks without food, but without water or some other way to stay hydrated, we would only last a few days. If you want to make staying hydrated more interesting than that taste-challenged drink of water, you might want to give these a try.

Considering that celery stalks are made up of about 95 percent water, eating them is a good alternate way to stay hydrated. They also have nutrients like potassium and vitamin K, which is a nice bonus. Celery is not a big hit with everyone, since it has a rather unique taste all its own.
