What better way to savor the last sweet moments of summer than with everyone’s favorite seasonal fruit: watermelon.
Here at Noom, we love watermelon. Not only does it taste delicious but it has tons of awesome health benefits too!
Watermelon is over 90% water, helping you stay hydrated in the summer heat. It’s also low in calories (coming in at under 50 calories per cup!) and provides a hefty dose of vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin B6.
To celebrate, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite healthy watermelon recipes for any occasion.
