Watermelon the Perfect Fruit in Hot Weather?

August 20th, 2010 · No Comments · Uncategorized

As I kid I always thought Watermelons were rather tasteless and preferred melons, an adult however develops a taste for subtler foods and I’ve recently become a fan of the Watermelon or Pasteche as the French call them. In hot weather slice them into wedges the size of a box of matches. Put them in bowl and chill in the fridge. Bring them out after a meal or after exercise they will just disappear.

Benefits:-

  • Rich in Water Watermelon has very dense amount of water that helps in rehydrate your body, few drink enough water!
  • Rich in Potassium, Maintain the blood pressure and might decrease the size of the kidney stone.
  • Natural Sweetness : Watermelon has zero fats and low in calories! A perfect finger food to lose weight!
  • Rich in Fibre : Avoid constipation, help digestion
  • Concentrated Carotenoids : Carotenoids are the red pigments found in watermelon that can prevent cancer
  • Good Antioxidants : Watermelon contains antioxidant such as Vitamin A and Vitamin C that helps in preventing cell damage, neutralizing and also removing free radicals.

With all those benefits Watermelon just melts in the mouth which in my eyes makes it the perfect fruit for hot days. My personal belief is that we can’t eat too much fruit, in fact I know someone who takes a week long melon cure every year.
