Watermelon

Cut WatermelonIt has been hot this week and I love it! Watermelons seemed to fit the occasion perfectly.

Silicon Valley never gets hot enough for me, I like it on the warmer side. But this week I finally had my wish, we were having 90-degree weather. What's so great about where I live is 90-degree only lasts a few hours. The mornings is cold to me where I often deice by my windows, and in the evenings having a light sweater is comfortable for me. That is why I never seemed to get enough of the heat.



Watermelons have been on sale like festival time! It's wonderful. While photographing the pictures below, I couldn't decide whether to blur out the fruit or the flower. They both looked so good to me.
This Friday, I am sharing a natural recipe. Here is what you need to know about watermelons:

Lycopene: cancer fighting oxidant.
Glutathione: immune-system booster.
It’s 92% water so is the best thirst quencher you can find.

My SO and I are always hunting for fruits or food that are calorie reversed. We only wish. But nevertheless, since there is so much water in the fruit, watermelon is almost a system cleanser, and makes you feel full fast so that you don't need to eat a lot. Another one of those fruits that contains a lot of water is the Pommelo Fruit Zero. It is so hard not to be tempted with those decadent desserts.

  5. Watermelon is a favorite of mine! I don't know how you cut yours ... but I discovered a great way to cut and serve without any mess whatsoever.

    Works best with those smaller seedless melons.

    With sharp knife, carve out (maybe an inch or two) an oval into the melon while it's laying on the horizontal. Remove, scoop out watermelon balls with an ice cream scoop. When you have served all you need, simply place the 'top' back, refrigerate until you are ready to serve again.

    No dripping, no mess. Now, if you are already doing this .... good job!

  7. @Jen MSo true, I think most things are not good to eat too much off. Balance is key.

  11. @HelenSmart idea! I like that and will try it. I am not doing it that way, still the old fashion way. Chop into and cut into slices.

  15. I love all kinds of fruit but in the summer watermelon is my favorite. It is a great thirst quencher and I know it is good for me. Plus for most of the summer I can get them here fresh from the fields.
