Watermelon Goodness

Posted Aug 04 2008 7:17am


Jacki Donaldson ofThat’sFitpasses along4 reason to eat watermelon. Have a look:

  • Watermelon juice beat out tomato juice on the lycopene front in a recent study. Research suggests that lycopene may be a cancer killer.
  • A compound in watermelon can help with your skin's healing and regenerative processes.
  • Watermelon is practically calorie-free. It contains less than 50 calories per cup which makes it a grand way to satisfy a sweet tooth.
  • Eating watermelon is a great way to hydrate. There's 141 grams of water per each cubed cup.
Watermelon rocks, especially on a hot summer day. Give this recipe a try:

Watermelon Ices

5 cups seedless watermelon

1/2 cup raisins

Blend watermelon and raisins in a blender, food processor, orVitaMixuntil they form a creamy liquid. Pour into paper cups and freeze for one hour only. Remove partially frozen treat from the freezer. Blend again, spoon the mixture back into the cups, and place back in the freezer until served.

That reminds me, I have a hunk of watermelon in the fridge!
