Summer’s IT fruit: WATERMELON
Want to know how to stretch out summer?
Buy a large watermelon at the market this week and enjoy it every day of the week. It’s as versatile as it is sweet – you can use it any thing from savory salads, to gazpacho to cocktails. And, nothing beats gnawing on a slice on the back porch while the juice runs down your arms and drips off your elbows.
PLUS, watermelon is healthy! As its name suggests, watermelon is about 92 percent water and is the perfect way to hydrate first thing in the morning or after a workout. This juicy fruit is also among the best sources of lycopene – a nutrient found in red fruits and vegetables that’s important for vision, heart health, and cancer prevention.
What’s more, watermelon contains just 40 calories per cup.Read More
