What A Melon

melonmelon10melon7 “When one has tasted watermelon, he knows what the angels eat”.-Mark Twainmelon6 This was one of the juiciest watermelons I have ever sank my teeth into. So Lush. I almost felt guilty eating it. If you love fruit, then a trip to Brasil should be in your near future. I am on a quest to glow and radiate on my Vacation by filling my body with healing fruits. I savor each bite and visualize myself becoming a goddess. Your, mind, body, soul connection is important, plus its fun. So if you want well hydrated youthful skin, then I recommend you go out and score a big juicy pink watermelon. Eat into the rind(the Green part) it will bump up your libido. I saw it on food Network a while back. Another bonus is you will look less bloated and puffy, as it it helps your body shed excess fluid. At 92% water the sugar in it stays diluted and wont mess up your blood sugar levels, thus leaving you hydrated and youthful from the inside out. It also has a slight diuretic effect and cleans out your kidneys, it is a mini detoxification, plus us girls all need help there. Eating watermelon protects your skin from sun damage because of its high levels of  carotenoid antioxidants, beta-carotene, and lycopene. That is also why the color is a bright pinkish red.Watermelon is an ideal health food because it doesn’t contain any fat or cholesterol, is high in fiber and vitamins A & C and is a good source of potassium. So remember all that next time you eat one of these beauties.  Another fun fact : You need three things to grow watermelon: sun, bees and water. Honeybees must pollinate the yellow watermelon blossom. Even the sterile, seedless watermelon requires pollination in order to fruit.melon2
