I was so amazed by the melon in this week’s share, I would like to provide you with some insight into what this awesome ball of goodness nourishes you with. An average size melon has only 34 calories and is very low in fat. In one cup of the cubed melon you are getting 78% of your daily vitamin C intake, 30% of vitamin A and 12% of potassium. Vitamin A is a powerful antioxidant and is crucial for vision health. There is also loads of betacarotene in just a few bites!
These are just a few fun facts to help you understand and appreciate the health benefits a few bites of melon provides.
Other raw items I have been loving lately are tomatoes with salt and pepper, sliced fresh peppers, cukes, blueberries... the list goes on and on! So, happy eating to you all!!
