We all know that there is nothing more refreshing than a big, chilled wedge of watermelon on a hot, summer day. But more than being a refreshing treat, watermelon is a rich source of nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and organic compounds. These include significant amounts of vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, fiber, protein, and a very large amount of potassium. Furthermore, they contain vitamin A, vitamin B6, niacin, thiamin, and a wide variety of carotenoids and phytonutrients, including lycopene!
Wash, cut and eat! Try cutting watermelon it in half, then into slices. You can also remove the peel and add the sliced fruit to salsas or salads.
