It’s summer and we’re enjoying all of the summer melons at the market lately.

A personal favorite: Cantaloupe

Not only is cantaloupe a guilt free sweet treat.
We love thinking of all of the health benefits it gives us as well.
Did you know…
1. It is a great source of antioxidants a & c
2. Contains anti-inflammatory properties
3. May help prevent heart disease
4. Boosts immunity
5. Is a great source of electrolyte potassium
6. Protects eye health
7. Is good for digestion
8. Restores the body’s ph levels

Stuff the center with yogurt and granola for a great breakfast or try grilling it and enjoy it after dinner. We loved Luci Morsels recipe from her blog.
