Mouth-Watering Recipes for National Watermelon Day
Mouth-Watering Recipes for National Watermelon Day – On August 3, Have Your Fill of This Refreshing Fruit
On August 3, we recognize the watermelon, one of the most refreshing fruits known to exist. The fruit is composed of 92 percent water, which makes it one of the best natural treats you can have during summer.
The watermelon’s nourishing and thirst-quenching properties were recognized even in ancient times. For instance, ancient Egyptians used to place watermelons in the burial tombs of their kings so they wouldn’t get thirsty in the afterlife.
There are more than 300 varieties of watermelons cultivated in the United States and South America. Some have seeds, some don’t. There are mini watermelons and there are also pretty huge ones.
You can do many things with watermelons aside from eating them. Through the years, people have come up with ingenious ways to make an already beloved fruit even more appreciated. For example, alcohol enthusiasts have come up with a way to incorporate watermelons in their drinking sessions. While the fruit is composed mostly of water, adding vodka to the mix makes it one heck of a party fruit. This is usually done by inserting a funnel and pouring the alcohol in.
Artists have made watermelon sculptures. Entertainers have exploded watermelons using a thousand rubber bands. The Japanese even invented a game revolving around cracking a watermelon open.
On August 3, invite your friends and family to come on over (preferably bringing watermelons with them) so you can all celebrate National Watermelon Day!
Delicious Recipes You Can Make With Watermelons
Watermelon is already great on its own. It’s a guilt-free snack that you can eat as much as you want since it’s mostly made of water. You don’t have to worry about your waistline when you’re eating them.
However, this isn’t the only way to eat them. Watermelons can be prepared in many different ways. They’re so versatile that there are more than a hundred recipes out there that feature watermelons as their main ingredient.
On August 3, spice up National Watermelon Day by preparing a watermelon-based lunch, snack, or dinner for your friends and family.

Use Your Beater to Help Save Lives
Watermelons not only taste great, but they’re also nutritious. Some studies have even shown that watermelons contain compounds that help fight cancer or slow the growth of tumors.
However, people can’t expect watermelons to cure life-threatening diseases such as breast cancer. Proper treatment is still needed to combat this life-threatening disease.
Unfortunately, many uninsured and underprivileged breast cancer patients can’t afford the high cost of treatment.
The good news is that you can help ease their plight and potentially save their lives. All you have to do is to donate a car that you no longer need to us at Breast Cancer Car Donations.
