Back at Farmer Joe’s again!
We were picking watermelons today!
4 Healthy Reasons to eat Watermelon!
- Watermelon contains a high amount of the powerful antioxidant lycopene which can help to support good heart health and blood pressure.
- It’s called watermelon for a reason! It contains over 90% water, making it one of the most hydrating fruits you can eat. It’s a great way to get your water quota on those hot summery days!
- Watermelon is a good snack to eat before or after your workout because it aids in hydration and provides energy too, plus it’s a good source of potassium, an important electrolyte lost in sweat.
- It’s not only sweet and delicious, but it also contains lots of nutrients too including vitamins C and A, and magnesium.
Just bite into a big juicy slice of it, or add it to your smoothies and fruit salads, or even to your green salad with feta cheese. It’s yummy either way!
