Using Watermelon Fruit Salad on your Quinoa Diet

The 7 day quinoa diet includes a daily juice recipe for one of the meals. You are also free to eat fruit and vegetables freely on the diet. Using melon as a base to hold other fruits, you can provide yourself with many of the vitamins and minerals that you need.

Melon is 92 percent water and helps overcome dehydration. A two-cup serving of watermelon is an excellent source of vitamins A, B6 and C, and it provides 7 percent of the recommended daily value of potassium, with only 80 calories.

Watermelon is fat-free and also contains fibre. Its beautiful red color comes from all-natural lycopene, an antioxidant that can help keep our bodies healthy.

Watermelon can be eaten at any meal, breakfast, lunch or dinner, and it’s a wonderful snack for the whole family. Delicious on its own, watermelon is a fantastic ingredient in recipes, too. Previously just a summertime treat, tasty watermelon is now available year-round.

A watermelon can hold a fruit salad that looks good and tastes great. The salad inside can be as simple as a mixture of blueberries, seedless green grapes and balls of watermelon, cantaloupe and honeydew melon.

Use this recipe as an alternative in the quinoa diet where it states “fresh fruit”.
