W Wa Watermelon



With just 48 calories per cup and packed with water, this refreshing fruit makes for the perfect healthy snack. It’s low in sugar, and high in vitamins A and C, as well as the amino acid citrulline, which help the body produce another amino acid, arginine (arginine can help lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.) This melon’s also a great source of lycopene, the super-healthy essential carotenoid found in tomatoes, that studies suggest can protect the body from UV rays, cardiovascular disease, and some forms of cancer.

Watermelon is also the best flavour Jolly Rancher candy (well it is)

  4. We eat A LOT of watermelon in summer. I'm always buying it. It's sooooo refreshing and sweet. Every week I make a fruit salad of watermelon, canteloup, blueberries, & grapes.

  6. I hate Jolly Ranchers (no matter the flavor), but I LOVE watermelon. Even today, just a small taste takes me back to hot summer days as a kid. Watermelon all over our faces... Oh man!
