WATERMELON.....

I just love this fruit and I can consume even an whole fruit without any problem...

Last weekend we were at   DAHANU   a small beach town about 2 hours drive from Mumbai....









While driving back I saw these awesome fruits in piles along the road side and there was nothing that could stop me from having a bite..

I had posted about this earlier in 2011 .. But let me tell you that a Watermelon is a great dish when you have a nice spicy meal keep it at the table with a little salt and chaat masala sprinkled on it.. It refreshes you instantly.

Watermelon is one of the most refreshing, thirst quenching fruit available year round now even in India.

 

Watermelon consists of 92% water and 8% sugar.
Watermelons are an excellent source of several vitamins: vitamin A, which helps maintain eye health and is an antioxidant; vitamin C, which helps strengthen immunity, heal wounds, prevent cell damage, promote healthy teeth and gums; and vitamin B6, which helps brain function and helps convert protein to energy.
 



It has the highest concentrations of lycopene of any fresh fruit or vegetable.
so that dayI purchased one whole for later use and ate a plate full of freshly cut fruit that you see above.
