It's watermelon season!

It’s watermelon season!

On a hot, humid summer day, there is nothing more refreshing than a slice of ice cold watermelon!

The organizational problem with watermelon, however, is that it is so large and takes up a lot of space in the fridge. If you are a watermelon fan, it’s time to make some space. Clear out a spot in your fridge and designate it your “watermelon spot.” Ideally, place it at about eye level so that every time you open the fridge for a snack, it is the first thing you see.

In addition to being delicious, watermelon is a great source of the antioxidant lycopene that can serve as an internal sunscreen in addition to its other health-giving properties!

My children loved these "cute" sized watermelons.

We are aiming to eat watermelon every day during the summer as part of our healthy eating goals.

  1. Wonderful idea! And we have become big fans of the mini-watermelons!

  2. I have a huge glass dish that fits on a fridge shelf that I use to keep sliced watermelon on. It’s awesome! My daughter like them sliced in “smiles”. 🙂
