Healthy Bite of the Day

WatermelonHappy Monday and we're off and running just like the horses at the Kentucky Derby this past weekend. It's out the front door to work, appointments, errands or class. The spring temperatures are recording summertime readings already. Keep cool and hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. Plus, add watermelon as a way to replenish thirst and get healthy bites of nutrition. 

Watermelon is a great source for vitamins C and A along with lycopene which helps fight cancer. It's also fat free! Save time by cutting up bite size chunks for easy snacking and store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. The kids will enjoy the cool down it provides after playing outside. Watermelon helps replenish electrolytes lost during perspiration. It's a great in-between meal snack too. Stay cool and hydrated with watermelon all season long!
