Watermelons are mostly water about 92 percent but this refreshing fruit is soaked with nutrients. Each juicy bite has significant levels of vitamins A, B6 and C, antioxidants and amino acids. There's even a modest amount of potassium. Plus, this quintessential summer snack is fat-free, very low in sodium and has only 40 calories per cup.
Watermelons are the perfect example of a food that can help you stay hydrated. Their water content can help keep you hydrated, and their juice is full of good electrolytes. This can even help prevent heat stroke. The watermelon contains fiber, which encourages a healthy digestive tract and helps keep you regular.
I personally like watermelon a lot. During summer this is the perfect snack to enjoy and stay hydrated. You can even add some Feta cheese to enhance the flavor of this salad. As I am on strict diet these days, I avoid to add cheese in my salad. But I enjoyed this heavenly and chilled delicious Watermelon Mint salad in my lunch yesterday. When you are on strict diet, You keep on think that what next I will have in my lunch and or dinner. As Most of the people make their diet chart. I make my diet chart everyday according the ingredients I have. As By writing this post I am enjoying my Oatmeal breakfast with fruits. I found this ripe watermelon on my grocery store and made this fresh watermelon and mint salad with homemade lemon juice dressing. Very easy and quick to enjoy the fat less and full of water content tummy full option in your diet lunch or as a snack.
