Wednesday Wisdom - Watermelon

Summer is here so that means fruit and vegetable season is in its prime!  One of the best choices you can include in your diet is Watermelon.  The fruit is composed of about 90% water (hence the name) so it offers hydrating benefits in addition to great taste.  Watermelon is a great source of vitamins A and C as well as potassium.  It is also high in the antioxidant lycopene, which may help you reduce your risk of cancer and other diseases (www.eatright.org).  

A one cup serving of watermelon contains twice the amount of lycopene as one tomato and only 45 calories.

There are many creative ways to serve watermelon as well as prepare it.  Here's a couple of examples of some creative ways to use watermelon.  Enjoy!

Grab a cookie cutter and make your favorite watermelon shapes:

Or make watermelon on a stick:

Or add watermelon to your favorite summer salad:
