Celebrate July 4th with Watermelon

Watermelon

It’s refreshing!  It’s sweet!  It’s healthy!  It’s low in calories!

Enjoy watermelon as a healthy treat on Independence Day!!  One cup of watermelon cubes contains only about 50 calories but is packed full of beneficial antioxidants, including lycopene, which has been shown to be protective against certain cancers.  It is also contains potassium,  vitamin C and vitamin A.   And it is grown in the USA with California as the champion of watermelon production.  Other big conventional watermelon growing states are Florida, Texas, Georgia and Indiana.

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!
