As the weather heats up dehydration is an even bigger concern.

So often I hear folks tell me that they just cannot drink “that much water” to keep up with their needs.

 ENTER WATERMELON!!

I found myself enjoying this wonderful treat more and more so I decided to experiment and crate some refreshing raw food recipes.

 

 

Since I am enjoying my NutriBullet more each day, it became so easy.

It is interesting how seasonal foods provide us with exactly what we need for that time.

 Click for some other hydrating seasonal foods. (Watermelon is my favorite!)

Watermelon offers significant amounts of vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, fiber, protein, and a very large amount of potassium. Furthermore, they contain vitamin A, vitamin B6, niacin, thiamin , and a wide variety of carotenoids and phytonutrients, including lycopene!

Mint has one of the highest antioxidant capacities of any food. Learning how to use fresh herbs and spices like mint when cooking can also help to cut down on sodium intake.

I often use mint instead of things like agave or stevia and put it in my green juice and smoothies for a wonderful lift.

Notes
Since I always have my NutriBullet on the counter I go to that first if the recipe is small enough. Truthfully, any blender works great.This is the type of recipe you can sneak in thinks like kelp, dulce and turmeric. SSHHHH keep that between us.
