There’s one really yummy thing that is totally abundant this time of year, and cheap.
Watermelon. Cool, sweet, juicy…
Now I don’t want to spoil the fun or anything, but did you realize how healthy watermelon is? Yep, watermelon is a super-food.
Ø High in Vitamin C (1 cup gives you 25% of your daily vitamin C), Vitamin A, potassium and carotenoids
Ø Watermelon is low in calories.
Ø It has high water content, but it’s a diuretic- helps your body remove excess fluids.
Ø Helps relieve constipation.
Ø Has 60% more lycopene than tomatoes, helping you keep a healthy heart – and you don’t have to cook it to release the lycopene like you do tomatoes. Lycopene is also toxic to cancer cells.
Ø Watermelon helps you keep cool and avoid heatstroke in hot summer weather.
Ø Melons also contain silicon – which stimulates collagen production for healthy bones and great looking skin.
Ø And it just plain tastes good!
Most of the produce has been really good this year. The watermelon has been good. So had the corn, and the cherries. No excuse not to eat healthier this summer!
