How To Celebrate Watermelon Day This Summer
Watermelon: the perfect summer fruit that we all know and love. This delicious and refreshing fruit conjures up images of summer picnics, backyard barbecues, and warm Tennessee nights. Watermelon is not just tasty, but it contains a whole boatload of health benefits, too. Made of almost 92% water, eating watermelon helps you hydrate while also satisfying as a quick summer snack. This superfruit originated in West Africa but is now grown in warm climates all over the world and sent right to your kitchen table.
Health Benefits of Watermelon
Eating watermelon not only quenches your thirst, but it can also provide you with a wide range of antioxidants that are shown to prevent cancer development. These antioxidants, carotenoid and lycopene, can be found not just in the inner part of the fruit but can be found in the rind and the outer skin as well. The health benefits don’t stop there. In just one cup of watermelon, you can find Vitamins A, B1, B5, B6, and C in varying amounts. Magnesium is also present at 4% of your recommended daily intake for vitamins and minerals. The combination of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals make watermelon more than worthy of a summer celebration!
