Some foods are simply superstars when it comes to nutrients: watermelon for example.
The Center for Science in the Public Interest lists watermelon as one of the top ten best foods to eat. Since summer’s almost over, take advantage of these last few weeks to enjoy watermelon while it’s in season. Watermelon is high in vitamin A and vitamin C. It’s also a good source of potassium, which is sorely lacking in the American diet today (Americans are eating only about ½ the recommended amount of potassium daily). Finally, it’s a great source of lycopene, a carotenoid which has anti-oxidant, cancer fighting properties.
