Day 1 ~ Melon Detox
So we have arrived at Day 1, its all about Cantaloupes.
The cantaloupe is a juicy, orange summer fruit that’s related to the watermelon and honeydew melon. It also belongs to the same plant family as cucumbers, pumpkins, squashes, and gourds.
Like many fruits and vegetables, cantaloupe is mostly water. One cup of fresh cubes has 144 calories, 6% of your daily serving of fiber, and zero fat and cholesterol.
It also packs:
100% of the daily value for vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that protects your cells from damage
All your daily need for vitamin A, which helps keep your eyes, skin, bones, and immune system healthy
About 12% of your recommended daily potassium, important for your heart, muscles, and blood pressure
It hydrates you. Cantaloupes are filled with electrolytes. These minerals balance body fluids in your body and keep it working right. That helps you stay hydrated and full of energy.
When you cut into a perfectly ripe cantaloupe, what you’ll notice first is its fragrance: honey-scented, floral and slightly musky. You’ll know you picked a good one if its juicy and well-hydrated on the inside.
