It has been blazing hot in Grand Junction, and I have seen plenty of people trying to stay cool by drinking tons of water. I can tell you that without a doubt that I am not a huge water drinker. I get bored easily with the taste and would rather have anything but. That sparked a question, "What can one do when you are trying to keep plenty of fluids in your system but are completely tired of drinking water?"

I went on a search for answers, and I found a great list of items you can use to hydrate versus drinking water. According to Mashable.com here are top ways to stay Hydrated during this week of 100-degree temperatures!

5. Milk - This is something that I would have never thought of. But if you think about it, there is enough sodium in milk that it will keep you hydrated, just like a sports drink would.

7. Leafy Greens - Made of almost all water, taking the time to have a cool crisp salad can not only cool you down, but help you to replenish water in your system.
