A bowl of cold watermelon soup is refreshing and is a very simple soup for one of those ‘hot’ days. Also, you will get all the wonderful nutrients and health benefits from the superfoods watermelon, lemons, mint, and stevia.
Watermelon is great for cleansing, weight Loss, packed with nutrition, and is delicious too. It is an inexpensive way to help you cleanse your body and lose weight. One cup of watermelon has only 47 calories.
In addition to weight loss, watermelon is a great source of energy and nutrients for your body. Watermelon is recommended by the American Council on Exercise as a good choice of diet food.
Lemons’ health benefits are immense. To begin they are acidic to the taste but are alkaline-forming in the body. In fact, they are one of the most alkaline-forming superfoods; this makes them great for balancing a highly acidic condition in the body. Also, they are full of many health benefits.
Cool fresh mint with its stimulating aroma is a popular flavouring for gum, toothpaste, and tea. This superfood is full of many health benefits from helping with digestion to increasing memory. Did you know it helps keep mosquitos away too? I always grow mint in my garden for salads, teas, and smoothies.
As I don’t use sugar for my baking I often use stevia which is the healthy option. The stevia plant is incredibly sweet and also incredibly good for you. The leaf is 30 times sweeter than sugar while extracts are 300-400 times sweeter. The best stevia will, therefore, be the one that retains some whole food value and is water-based. Liquid forms will be less processed. Go here to learn How to Get the Best Stevia Without the Bitterness.
