With having a few more weeks of the warm summer days I still look forward to enjoying a mouth watering tasting slice of watermelon. For awhile, I had been happy about those seedless ones that I find in the local supermarkets but I had the opportunity to get one straight from the patch of North Carolina and you talk about lip smacking good...I am still looking for a truck that says "from North Carolina".
Besides tasting good watermelon is good bone nutrient because it is rich in lycopene which is a carotenoid believed to play a part in halting bone loss as you age.
Watermelon also contains the amino acid arginine which is believe to also promote weight loss. One thing we know for sure...eating watermelon will help make you feel plenty full...just be sure you don't eat it too late in the evening so it doesn't interrupt your rest.
Let me know which is your favorite...seeded or seedless and if you have had one of those lip smacking good North Carolina watermelons...and no...I am not from North Caroline...I am a city girl...DC.
