Carmen’s Post – Watermelon

 In HCYHealthy

Watermelon season is upon us!  With Fouth of July festivities approaching and the incredible heat temps we have been experiencing, there is not a better time to enjoy this healthy food.  Watermelon is a great food for hydration and electrolyte replacement since it is composed of 92% water.  It is packed with nutrients B6, B1, Magnesium and Potassium which convert calories to energy.  I would love to tell you how to pick the perfect watermelon from the store, but this Iowa farm-raised girl is still practicing that skill!  The method to my madness:  give it a good thump and listen for hollowness.  You’ve got a 50-50 chance, but when you get it right, there’s nothing better then chilled cubed watermelon!  Happy Fourth of July!
