I’ve been craving watermelon lately. This summertime favorite not only satisfies the tastebuds with its sweetness and dessert-like texture...
It’s full of antioxidants which neutralize free-radicals and save cells from damage. This puts less pressure on the kidneys, by taking some of that #detox workload. 😁
Watermelon is an excellent source of vitamin C and potassium! These are extremely important for #immunity , nerve function and #energy .
The amino acid L-citrulline speeds up the removal of lactic acid in the muscles, improving your #recoverytime post-exercise. 💪
L-cutrulline and L-arginine lower inflammation in the body.
And, watermelon is extremely hydrating! This lowers the chance of heat exhaustion (especially for those kiddos running around outside, who don’t want to stop to drink.)
Remember: the best #wholefooddiet & #nutrition involve a variety of tastes, colors, and textures. Mix it up. Eat what’s in season. Pay attention to your body and its #healthy cravings. (For the ladies out there, if you’re #cravingchocolate , especially on the regular, your body may be hungry for magnesium.)
Wishing you the best in health,
Happy Summer! ☀️❤️🍉
P.S. What’s in this watermelon salad?
-cubed watermelon, sliced baby cucumbers, washed blueberries, raisins, pumpkin & sunfower seeds, & cashews; coated in grapeseed oil goodness. 😍
