You will know when summer officially hits around my home because there will always be melon…. watermelon andΒ cantaloupe. πŸ˜‹.

Love watermelon especially… seriously, my summer Sunday routine includes church, then going to get a watermelon so I can cut it up and toss the rind for the Monday trash.

I buyΒ seedless ones. Β There are some watermelon purists out there who only buy the seeded ones. Β I don’t eat seeded watermelons or fish with lots of bones for the same reason…. I hate excessive spitting during eating… too messy for me. Β Just my preference. Β When I was a little girl my family would drive from NY to GA and my dad would buy several big seeded watermelons to bring back home Β …. and amongst them was always a couple of little β€œSugar Babies” (small round seedless sweet watermelons) for me.

Watermelon has many great benefits. Β Check it out here! Benefits of watermelonΒ πŸ‰Β 

I also love summer food colors so I decided to do a mostly clean eating colorful food week. Β When I do this, I like to include eating mostly raw, colorful foods, with low protein, and a smaller amount of cooked green veggies. This really helps when I need to have enough food to keep my energy levels going and my hunger down but also need to watch my caloric intake and do a mini-cleanse. Anyway, summer fruits and veggies do the trick.

I will eat some protein because I’m not vegan or such, and eating a bit of protein keeps my metabolism fired up, and seems keeps my hair and nails in better shape. So, at some point in the week, I will throw a bit of salmon, or chicken on the grill…. a couple ounces per day is usually enough.

Try some of these summer foods… or any others. Β So delicious!
