Watermelon lowest in calories and sugar

Scoops of watermelon, chunks of feta cheese, mint leaves, and pita bread

watermelon is one of the lowest in calories even lower than berries. May lower the risk of heart attacks and strokes by reducing blood pressure and cholesterol levels

Watermelon may help lower inflammation and oxidative damage, since it’s rich in the anti-inflammatory antioxidants lycopene and vitamin C. It is a delicious fruit to quench your thirst (it is 92% water).

Beside eating it right from the melon’s god given bowl, we can also prepare salad and side dishes.

1- Few drops of balsamic vinegar for a refreshing side dish.

2- Or mixed with feta cheese, red onions, arugula or cucumbers, olive oil, zest of lime, and mint leaves for a refreshing salad.

Our young eaters call this “watermelon soft tacos”
