It has some pretty good health benefits too! It is packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B1, Potassium and Magnesium….whew….that’s a whole lot of goodness! Watermelon has no cholesterol, and virtually no fat….and did I mention it has concentrated sources of carotenoid lycopene? Studies have shown that watermelon has the highest sources of lycopene over any other fruit or vegetable. The Vitamin C and Vitamin A are powerful antioxidants that travel through your body neutralizing free-radicals. We all know Lymies want nothing more than to ditch those free-radicals!! Out with the bad I say and if it tastes good in the process…even better!
Ok….so if that doesn’t entice you to grab a fresh chilled slice of watermelon….I don’t know what will!!
