We all know we’re supposed to drink a lot of water every day to stay hydrated (about 11 cups for women and 16 cups for men is recommended). But who actually wants to do this? It takes a lot of reminders and even more trips to the bathroom.

If you’re constantly battling dehydration or just want a foolproof way to hit your goals, here’s a simple tip: Eat foods that contain a lot of water too. Your top choices for max water intake are greens like celery, lettuce, and broccoli, along with fruits and yogurt (all foods that, no surprise, are also good for you!). Yep, even coffee made the cut, since caffeine isn’t dehydrating as long as you drink it in moderation. So now you can sip your morning cup in peace.
