Watermelon is the sh*t. You could read that statement, take my word for it, buy yourself a big ol’ one at the store, and be on your merry way munching your face off.

Or you could read the rest of this blog and let my super persuasive facts and mind trickery convince you.

If you choose the second option, read on my friend!

Watermelon Love for the Skeptics

Did you know watermelon is mostly water – about 92%? Super sexy agua that tastes like a unicorn made love with a fairy and they had a dreamy sweet pink love child.

Can I also point out it is visually stunning? It truly is the best Insta partner. Gives your feed a pop of color and your body necessary health benefits.

The Slushy

  • Throw watermelon (sans rind), some lime juice, and ice into a blender and let that thing rip. It truly is that simple, even a one-armed monkey could make this – no excuses for those who say they, “can’t cook”.

The Salad

  • Peel a cucumber, chop some watermelon, dice red onion, grind on salt/pepper, drizzle extra virgin olive oil, and sprinkle with feta.
  • Your first bite will be life changing. You may be in such a flavor focused mindset you forget your kids in the bathtub. You’ve been warned.

The Popsicle 

  • Similar to the slushy take watermelon, lime, and some water (sparkling or filtered), blend that b*tch, pour into popsicle molds, freeze for a few hours.
  • This will be your new fav hot summer treat or bedroom tool with your man – I went there, I absolutely went there.

Stats for the Way-Cool Watermelon

  • Watermelon has more lycopene than raw tomatoes – and in case you aren’t a rocket scientist or Nutritionist, ‘lycopene’ is a powerful carotenoid antioxidant that has anti-cancerous properties.
  • Watermelon juice relieves muscle soreness – a recent study showed bros who drank it before a workout felt like the Hulk afterward with little to no pain. Their wording may have been a tad different.
  • Helps you hydrate which is crazy important considering 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated – not messing with you, this is fo’ real.
  • The citrulline in watermelon has been shown to reduce the accumulation of fat in our fat cells – meaning chow on this pre-bikini season.
  • The vitamin C content in watermelon is astoundingly high, assisting in upping your immune system (a necessity for my chronic disease warriors).
