Watermelon Diet 2.0
Those 3 words probably make you think of that fad diet that went something like this:
1. buy huge amounts of watermelon
3. eat non-stop
After all, there’s only 8 calories per ounce of watermelon and all the water content and fiber of watermelon keep you feeling full, hydrated and, hopefully handle your sweet tooth.
Here’s our reinvention of the watermelon diet: Combine watermelon with every food group possible. Its fresh, cookable, grillable, freezable. We could go on but it’s also good for you:
Tomato-watermelon Salad With Feta And Toasted Almonds by Bon Appetit
→ add grains for more fiber
→ add low-fat cheese for protein
→ grilled fish + watermelon
→ liquid watermelon is better than any soda
→ mix with vegetables
We could go on but it’ll be fun for you to start exploring this great new diet.
