Watermelon: A Summertime Favorite and New Recipe

Did you know the average American eats 16 pounds of watermelon each year?

With only 46 calories in 1 cup, it is a quick, easy and delicious snack! Not only is it a good source of fiber, watermelon has also been found to decrease the link of prostate cancer, combat the formation of free radicals that are known to cause cancer, aid in digestion and improve regularity due to the high lycopene content, and help relieve muscle soreness as well as improve recovery time after exercising.
