DON’T discard the rind!
The rind is as beneficial as the rest of your watermelon. Natures best sources of chlorophyll and it contains one of the highest levels of natural sodium there is. Juice the rind for a delicious, refreshing let alone healing drink. Make sure it’s organic though!
Seeds, seeds, seeds!
Consider it your lucky day when your delicious organic watermelon has black seeds. You can add them to your melon juice and blend them up at the same time. They are awesome in relaxing the body and nervous system. The seeds are full of protein, zinc, fibre and iron and they are amazing at lowering high blood pressure.
Watermelon is over 90 percent mostly water. So with the summer on its way eating watermelon is an awesome way to stay hydrated to avoid dehydration. But remember, it’s NOT a substitute for drinking lots of fresh filtered water.
This for sure is one of my favourite juices in the summer!
