10 Summer Super Foods


Slide 1 of 10

Watermelon is an essential asset for every summer diet, mainly because it hydrates the body (hence the root word water). Watermelons are comprised of 92 percent water and 6 percent sugar, so while it is hydrating the body it also helps to maintain electrolytes that are lost by excessive sweating. Watermelon is packed with vitamins, containing 20 percent of the daily value of vitamin A, which helps with eye health, and vitamin C, which improves your immune system. No worries about this summer fruit affecting your waistline either, with only 46 calories in a one cup serving.
