Hydrating Fruit “Veggies”! Say what?!? 🥒🍅🥑🌶

We all know the magical powers of fruits and how hydrating things like watermelon, grapes, oranges and cantelope can be…

But rarely do we think about non-sweet fruits when we hear this

Did you know that all the “veggies” you see in this dish, besides the carrot and mushrooms, are all ACTUALLY FRUITS?!?!

Avocado, Bell Pepper, Yellow Squash, and Tomatoes are all botanically fruits not vegetables!

Fruits contain the highest amount of readily absorbing energy in comparison to other produce and foods

Partially because they carry the ability to recreate, having contain seeds, which is what classifies them as fruits

This can be seen by measuring the Angstroms or amount of energy that is being held by different types of food

Besides the fact fruit is the ultimate energizer… 🤪💃🤸‍♀️

Its also another great way to increase water intake and keep that lymph system moving!!!

Did you know that our lymphatic system is over 90% fluid?!?!

The lymphatic system is a network of vessels that collect the fluids and waste constantly be removed from our blood, organs, and entire body

By hydrating we ensure our bodies health highway can stay clear and free of congestion

Preventing illness, edema, and keeping our mind and body in peak performance

Around 2 liters of fluid leak from the cardiovascular system into body tissues every day

Hence where the suggested 2 liters of water a day comes from 🙃

Watermelon

Did you know that watermelon is NATURES VIAGRA?!?!😳

What?!?! Yes you heard that right!!!

Watermelon naturally works to dilate our circulatory system and increase blood flow….. no wonder theres always so much “Summer Love” happening 😂😂😜

Watermelon helps us hydrate with its 92% water content, is super rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Magnesium, Potassium, Carotenoids, Lycopene and B Vitamins such as B1, B5 and B6

Why are these important?!

B1 (Thiamine)- enables the body to use carbohydrates as energy. It is essential for glucose metabolism, and it plays a key role in nerve, muscle, and heart function

B5 (Pantothenic Acid­) Helps produce energy by breaking down fats and carbohydrates

B6 (Pyrodoxine) – Important for normal brain development and for keeping the nervous system and immune system healthy

Watermelon also is rich in Cucurbitacin E which has amazing anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects on the body

Like Tomatoes, Watermelon has lycopene giving it its RED color,
which makes it great for Heart Health!!
Oh nature youre so clever 😊💕

Lycopene helps lower cholesterol and blood pressure by acting as a Vasodilator helping loosen up stiff and/or thicken blood vessels

Lycopene also helps to protect the eyes and prevent Macular Degeneration or Eye Sight Damage as we age, so make sure to share some with your Grandparents ❤

Eeek, Attention Athletes!!!

Citrulline helps the body recover and reduces oxidative stress/muscle soreness!! Making watermelon the perfect post work out treat!!
