How to make your own 5 minute natural
"When one has
tasted watermelon he knows what the angels eat" ~
The perfect treat to cool your body in the
summer is a
slice of watermelon, or more :)
You can buy watermelons almost all year round, but the season for
watermelon is right now. Even if watermelon
is packed antioxidants, vitamins and amino acids, you
won't need a
prescription for it. Eat as much as you can. Just be careful, or you
may explode. I know I have. Every time I ate it :).
One thing I learned about food is that you need to combine the salty,
sour, sweet and bitter tastes. In Israel and Egypt, people eat the
sweet watermelon with
salty feta cheese. I have already eaten watermelon with goat
made by my mother-in-law a couple of times, and it's a delight. You've
got to try it.
I didn't know up until a couple of years ago that watermelon
is a rich natural source of lycopene,
just like tomatoes. It's
because of this carotenoid with antioxidant properties that they both
have red color.
Also, watermelon contains citrulline,
an amino acid which can be metabolized to arginine, a conditionally
essential amino acid for humans. Ariginine is related to blood vessel
relaxation and all sorts of medical conditions
which improve with vasodilatation.
Beside these, watermelon also provides us with vitamins A, B,
and PP, magnesium, potassium and iron.
Hurry and get a watermelon from the market. "Winter is coming!" :)
