Cantaloupe is an excellent fruit for hydration during exercise, blood sugar stabilization and successful weight loss. This sweet, juicy fruit is particularly rich in vitamin A and potassium, an electrolyte lost through sweat. Potassium helps to maintain fluid levels in the body and lower blood pressure. Enjoy a wonderful bowl of cantaloupe as a light breakfast, blend it into a delicious chia pudding or turn it into a cool soup with a small piece of ginger, the juice of half a lemon, a few leaves of fresh mint, Stevia to taste and a pinch of Himalayan crystal salt or sea salt.
Zucchini is one of the most hydrating vegetables available and contains many important minerals and vitamins. It is very rich in manganese, a trace mineral that boosts our metabolism and strengthens our bones and tissues. Looking to tone that saggy tummy or those flabby legs? Zucchini will help you to achieve your goal. As an excellent source of both soluble and insoluble dietary fiber, it helps us to move food through the colon and reduce belly fat. Turn your zucchini into satisfying raw pasta, add it to a big mixed salad or turn it into a big bowl of salty chips.
Carrots might seems rather dry vegetables, but don’t be mistaken: they contain up to 90 percent of water and are very rich in vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants. This makes them the perfect sweet, nutrient-rich snack for anyone who wishes to lose weight or improve their health. Additionally, carrots help to protect against cardiovascular disease and many types of cancer. According to “The Encyclopedia of Healing Foods”, eating one large carrot a day can even cut lung cancer risk in half. Carrots are also very high in beta-carotene, which helps to improve eyesight and protects against sunburn. Enjoy carrots as a pre-lunch nibble, in a sweet Asian salad or with a creamy raw dip sauce.
