Watermelon Obsession

July 6, 2009

As some of you have noticed, I have become obsessed with watermelon. Living in the desert where it’s been over 100 degrees day in and day out has made me crave anything and everything that is cool and crispy.

So, instead of turning to ice cream or other junk foods, I have turned to watermelon.

In honor of my newfound obsession I thought I would share this low calorie/fat/sugar recipe, along with some creative watermelon sculptures… ENJOY!

    Hello Ruth,

    I will try the watermelon pie, it sounds delicious, of course anything that has watermelon for me is wonderful, I love it.

    Anyway I wanted to share my great discovery, a healthy and amazing drink called MonaVie is a blend of 19 superfruits including the Acai berry, that is known to have 15-20 more antioxidants than any other fruit, over 250 phytonutrients to help you fight disease, the protein of 1 egg, omegas 3-6-9 and other vital nutrients to help you maintain a healthy lifestyle. The best part is 4 oz of this juice is the equivalent of 13 servings of fruits and vegetables and is compared with vegetables ’cause the same compounds found in spinach, broccoli and asparagus are found in Acai berry.

    My husband started to drink it because he had a chronic back pain for about three years, a lot of pain medication, he even went for surgery, nothing work, and on top of it he was getting liver damage because all of the medication.
    A chiropractor was the one who was so kind to share this wonderful juice with my husband, and it took only 2 months for him to feel a relieve after 3 years of pains and he was available to leave all of this pharmaceuticals drugs.
    The motto of the company is drink it. feel it. share it. and I can honestly tell you that we could even see it as a miracle for my husband. Now we all drink it, just because we like to invest well in the health of our family.

    I just love to share this with all of you.

    FYI- Watermelon is also great for colds! YAY!! If you have a backyard pool that’s in the shade during the summer, float your watermelon (whole, with skin) in there, and when you want to eat it lift it out, and you’ll have a nice, cold watermelon! NATUraL COOLING!!
