You Can Eat Watermelon Seeds?!?


Hey guys! 

          If you grew up in the South, perhaps you have been told that you can not eat watermelon seeds as you will "sprout a watermelon in your belly". Well as you have probably found out already, that is not true and is just an old tale!

In fact, did you know that eating watermelon seeds may actually be good for you?

  • They are rich in micro-nutrients like potassium, copper, and zinc. They have Vitamin B, protein, and healthy fats in them as well.
  • They can be eaten straight from the fruit, sun-dried, or salted. You should not bake them as you will kill most of the good benefits from them.
  • They are good for your heart, boost your immunity, and keep blood sugar levels in check.
  • You can use them as an inexpensive and healthy snack next time you are craving a snack and save yourself some calories and regrets.
Therefore, quit spitting out the seeds and enjoy them!
          While you are at it, tell everyone you know about watermelon seed benefits by sharing this blog post. 

          Also, if you found this to be interesting then please check back on my blog often, share my posts, comment on posts, etc. as I like to know what y'all like to read and I run my own blog because I like to blog (not for income purposes).
