I have gone through at least six watermelons in the past two weeks.
The sweet, juicy fruit is "mayjah" right now!
And super affordable ... I saw seedless melons here in the Midwest for just $2.99 each!
Whether you prefer wedges or chunks, these orbs pack a nutritional wallop. Watermelon contains more lycopene than even tomatoes!
Plus, munching on melon is a great way to hydrate due to it's high water content!
I prepare my watermelon LA Frutas style, by cutting off both ends and then using a large knife to slice away all the skin and rind. You are left with an elliptical of concentrated watermelon flesh, ready to be sliced and diced as you desire.
Try adding watermelon to salad, grilling it as a side dish or adding it to smoothies.
