Summer Food

What reminds us more of a yummy, fun filled food day in the Summer than watermelon?  1 cup of diced watermelon contains approximately calories.  It's loaded with vitamin C and vitamin A.  Pink watermelon is also a source of the potent carotenoid antioxidant, lycopene.  It is high in sugar, 10g per cup, so it's not what you'd eat on a low carb diet, but it's also loaded with water (about 92% worth) so it's good to keep hydrated on a hot summer day.  Enjoy!
