how to alleviate constipation with watermelon
how to alleviate constipation
I arrived in Bali for a 🌧 winter escape on #nationalwatermelonday
grateful for the gifts, Mama earth 🙏🏼🌏
then: I remember eating carefully sliced watermelon from a platter on the 4th of July in Texas summer heat.
now: I eat watermelon almost every morning to #breakthefast. 😛 I cut a whole one in half & dig in with a spoon. if I’m lucky to have a perfectly juicy one, I eat the other half, too.
why watermelon ?
🍉 hydrates on a cellular level (water alone cannot do this)
🍉 prevents heat exhaustion
🍉 lycopene (gives the red color) lowers cholesterol & risk of heart disease
🍉 alkalizes & detoxes waste from the body
🍉 antioxidant-rich (esp. vitamin C)
🍉 boosts immune system
🍉 high water + fiber content to alleviate constipation
🍉 potassium supports nervous system
🍉 amino acids for anti-inflammatory benefits & quick recovery after working out
seeing a theme here with the magical healing powers of fruit ?? nature knows what we need & provides. 🙌🏼☀️🌱
watermelon is best eaten alone as it digests faster than any other food (including other fruits), so eat melon on an empty stomach… in the morning… it will give you life !
