  • Watermelon

    July 10, 2019

    July is watermelon month. There isn’t another fruit that screams summer like watermelon.  Doesn’t everyone love watermelon?  

    It is great for hydration and why we naturally go for it on hot summer days.  Headaches and even bad moods can be cured by hydrating.  Watermelon is over 90% water.  Can you think of a more delicious way to hydrate?

    High blood pressure is decreased with the natural potassium in watermelon.  And don’t forget the gift of fiber we get from watermelon.

    Enjoy July and don’t forget to enjoy watermelon!  It makes you smile!
