Want a juicy, satisfying way to stay cool and full simultaneously? Eat watermelon! Cut it up in chunks and eat it fresh or freeze it. Ummm .... delicious, filling - a low-calorie way to stay full longer, which means you'll eat less of the fattening foods. And if you've hit a weight-loss plateau, let watermelon catapault you over the edge! Enjoy!
Watermelon sandwiches Qwark - on white bread? Now that's different - and since I'm the adventurous type - I'm willing to give it a go. But I must admit - with all that juice mixed with the white bread, sounds like I'm gonna have a doughy mess!
Watermelon is great, I am growing 2 watermelon plants in my garden and I made a watermelon and berry smoothie a few days ago because it was 100 degrees outside. Watermelon is very healthy and is good for weight loss.

It's the country's oldest, longest-running watermelon festival (not to mention the biggest thing that happens in our county all year long!).

Then I just get a fork and a smaller bowl and I don't have to do any cutting. I have arthritis in my hands so he just does this for me because he is a special guy.
Sounds deeeeeelicious Pamela99! I prefer the seedless too ... when I was younger my Dad used to say that if I swallowed the seeds, I'd grow a watermelon inside me! Thanks Dad! Kudos to your special guy - that's an excellent idea. Where's my icecream scoop?
Watermellon is my new food. I thought I purachased two cantaloupes yesterday-but when I cut them they were green inside. There is a new mix of mellons. A cantaloup and a honeydew looks like a cantaloup on the outside and a honeydew on the inside. Try it.
