August Tip of the Month

Watermelon is a heavyweight in the nutrition department.
A standard serving (about 2 cups) has one-third of a day's
vitamins A and C, a nice shot of potassium, and a healthy
dose of lycopene for only 85 fat-free, salt-free calories. And
when they're in season, watermelons are often locally grown,
which means they may have a smaller carbon footprint than some
other fruits.
