Beneficial Watermelon

Those who know me well, know that I cannot stay out of doing what I love. And the kitchen is one of the places I cannot stay away from. In spite of being told by the doctor yesterday not to stress myself – but little does Dr. H know that my kitchen is where I de-stress! I will remember to pass him my Blog’s URL in our next appointment.

Someone told me that watermelon seeds (apart from raw garlic and green vegetables) are good for High Blood Pressure, yes that’s the condition I have, thanks to my short fuse! Raw garlic I wouldn’t give in to, but I was looking forward to the watermelon experience, especially on a sun-drenched day like today.

IMG_7176 If there is something simpler than simple, it would be this watermelon juice! Sweet and complete on its own. Thank you Mother Nature!!

I love water melon juice and what I do is add a bit of milk & sugar too... makes a cool & refreshing watermelon shake.
