Studies have revealed that watermelon could be one of the world’s healthiest foods. It’s available year-round and is relatively inexpensive during its peak period (during the summer months).

Watermelon is  loaded with vitamin C and A. It has a great source of lycopene, potassium, magnesium, vitamins B1/B6 and other nutrients. Research has also found that the water-based fruit helps the lowering of blood pressure digits.

Turned a few chunks of mine into a refreshing drink. Added to standing blender:

  • chunks of watermelon
  • juice of lemon
  • cold water
  • dollop of honey

All ingredients were blended and the flutes show the refreshing results.

I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food. Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds. I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
