A summer staple at our house

I can’t even tell you how much we love watermelon at our house. We consume it almost everyday and at any meal. My boys ask for it all the time and I’m totally fine with that! Watermelon has some serious health benefits! Here are just a few:
It can help with blood pressure, asthma, skin, digestion, inflammation and muscle soreness.

Quite the list, eh? Watermelon is 92% water, which is refreshing on a hot summer day. We usually just eat it plain but I have seen some recipes recently that are going to be a must-try this summer!
