Healthy Watermelon


Watermelons

If you’re looking for a quick and healthy snack, try a slice of watermelon. Watermelons contain lycopene, the antioxidant that gives the fruit its color and one of the reasons the expert certifies watermelon as heart-healthy. Expert says a watermelon is 92% water and 8% natural sugar. It has no fat, lots of vitamins and minerals and about 49% calories. It’s really a refreshing and healthy treat for everyone. Tips: When buying a watermelon, look for one that’s heavy, symmetrical and shinny green with a pale or creamy yellow bottom.
