Cravings? Neem wat blokjes watermeloen!

Cravings? Have some cubes of watermelon!

Cravings Make sure you have a diced watermelon in the fridge.

How do I get to this wisdom? Well, nothing human is foreign to me and during a late-night search I found half a watermelon in the fridge.

I cut it into cubes. And when I ate it I thought: Hey, this has everything I'm looking for. It is sweet and crunchy and I can eat a lot of it without feeling guilty afterwards and it also makes me feel satisfied. Perfect, I'm going to share that!elen”!

Well I also know that there are no watermelons in the fall, winter and spring or maybe there are, but that is not in line with my seasonal eating habitsn)

So by then I'll have to come up with something else.

I immediately checked whether there are also nutritional values attached to a watermelon and yes.

In any case, watermelon consists of 95% water, so that is already beneficial. In addition, it contains vitamin C and iron. I honestly did not expect. Since it consists mainly of water, I did not expect it to provide such important nutrients..

In addition, the watermelon also provides us with potassium, which is an important mineral for people with high blood pressure. This is because potassium lowers blood pressure.

I also share a recipe for a salad with watermelon and one for an alcohol-free cocktail.

For the salad you need per person:

  • 1 slice of watermelon, cut into cubes
  • ½ fennel bulb, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of pine nuts
  • 1 handful of tasty black olives, roughly chopped
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • lemon zest and juice to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper and sea salt to taste.

 And this is how you make it ...

  • Make a dressing with the olive oil, lemon zest and juice, and freshly ground salt and black pepper. Roast the pine nuts in a dry frying pan.
  • Divide the cubes of watermelon on a plate and spread the finely chopped fennel over it.
  • Sprinkle with the roughly chopped olives
  • Then you add the dressing. Finish with the roasted pine nuts.

For the watermelon cocktail you need per person:

  • 125 g watermelon, cut into cubes
  • 150 ml coconut water
  • lime to taste
  • ice cubes
  • some fresh mint to taste 

 And this is how you make it ...

  • Put the cubes of watermelon in a blender and add the coconut water. Squeeze the lime and add the juice to taste. Mix for 30 sec.
  • Pour the juice from the blender into a shaker tin and add mint leaves and ice cubes.
  • Shake hard! Strain the cocktail into a nice glass.
  • Garnish with a mint leaf.
  • If you don't have a shaker tin, first put some mint leaves in a nice glass and mash it a bit. Then put some ice cubes in the glass and pour the watermelon juice from the blender into your glass..
