Summer Favorite: Watermelon

I love nothing more than a delicious scoop of ice cream (or two) on a hot summer day, but I've been trying to think of healthier and more natural snacks to turn to when it's muggy out and I need something refreshing. This is how my watermelon obsession began.

Who can blame me? It's delicious, it's hydrating, and it's beautiful. They are chock full of potassium and vitamin A, C, and B6, so you can always feel virtuous about reaching for it. Besides the taste, the bright, summery pink, white, and green are fun, and I've been seeing them everywhere.
