The next time you’re craving a sweet snack, reach for a watermelon. Watermelon is packed with more than just water; it provides healthy doses of vitamins C, A and B, thiamine, potassium and magnesium. Watermelon also contains lycopene, a key antioxidant in fighting prostate cancer and heart disease.*
When purchasing a watermelon, knock on the rind and listen for a hollow sound. Avoid rinds that produce a solid thud, which is a sign that they are overripe.
