Watermelon is not just a juicy, delicious, refreshing snack, meal-maker, ingredient or summertime celebrity, it is an all-year-round, naturally-nutritious pick. Each slice, ball or bite delivers vitamins, minerals, fiber and phytonutrients.

Two cups of watermelon (USDA Food Composition Database) has 80 calories, no fat, vitamin A (8%), B6 (8%) and C (25%), potassium (6%), magnesium (6%), thiamin (8%), phosphorus (2%). And who knew that there are 10 grams of protein in one ounce of sprouted, shelled and dried watermelon seeds?!
