Hello Foodies,

         My summer’s favorite fruit, naturally hydrating, ultra-refreshing watermelon! It is one of the sweet and refreshing low-calorie summer snacks. It provides hydration and also essential nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Eating cold watermelon right out of the refrigerator is one of the summer’s greatest joys.

          Watermelon is around 90% water, which makes it useful for staying hydrated in the summer. It can also satisfy a sweet tooth with its natural sugars.
