Summer time and the fruit is amazing

I’m not sure about you but summer fruits are my absolute favorite. Ok, fall time and apples…..I love them too. But right now I want to talk about the amazing benefits of watermelon. Watermelon is my favorite fruit, followed by avocados and pineapple. Watermelon is mostely water, amazing! Well I mean what do you expect? The name has water in it. Ha! We all need a bit more water in the summer time, it’s hot and humid over here. So this is one great benefit. It is rich in vitamins and minerals. It has Vitamins C and A in watermelon which can double as healthy fuel for hair and skin. Vitamin C also plays a key role in collagen production. Collagen prevents wrinkles and protects your skin from sun damage. I totally need this. Maybe I should bathe in it….ha ha! It has lycopene which can prevent cancer. Although I do not think it is a guarantee but heck, I doubt it would hurt to try.  Vitamin A can also keep your skin from drying out. Watermelon can boost your immune system, improve your heart health, can be a natural viagra and can even help with sore muscles. I don’t know about you, but this sounds like one heck of a health benefit. The only thing I keep reading is that if you have diabetes or kidney disease you should be causious about eating watermelon. Maybe ask your Dr before eating it to be sure you get a negative effect from eating watermelon. 
That’s all for today! 

I hope you were able to get out and workout today. I ran with the boys again this morning and it was amazing! Even though it was pretty warm and 98% humidity, ha! Hoping to run tomorrow as well. My goal is to run everyday. 
Have a wonderful and amazing Father’s Day tomorrow! 
Live happy
