Ok! Magazine that came out this past Wednesday gave me a little shout out this week. :) It inspired me to remind you again how great the amazing summer fruit of watermelon is. It is extremely cooling and refreshing, and being comprised of 92% water, is very low in calories. But at the same time, watermelon is high in B vitamins, which are necessary for energy production. Since it digests so quickly, and because melons in general don’t combine well with other foods, I recommend eating it in the morning, or on its own- on an empty stomach.
Watermelon is also a natural cleanser and diuretic. So it will help eliminate excess fluids from the body, and keep bloating and swelling down, as in the heat many of us tend to retain water. Speaking of cleansers, I occasionally like to do a water cleanse whenever my body is feeling sluggish or bogged down,
Watermelon also has great anti-aging effects, as it is high in collagen-building vitamin C, Vitamin A, and the antioxidant lycopene, which is a powerful free-radical scavenger. Remember that free radicals can cause health problems…and contribute to the visible forms of skin aging.
If you can get your hands on it, I recommend getting organic watermelon with seeds intact, the way nature made them. Seedless fruits are hybridized by man to make them sterile and often are also sprayed with chemicals. Sterile fruit has a lower vibration than naturally grown fruit. By eating more fertile foods, you will absorb that energy to be more fertile and magnetic yourself!
Have a beautiful weekend and see you back here soon!
