Today for lunch, we had a mono-meal. In case you don't know, that means eating just one thing until you are full. It can be very satisfying, and the meal is very easy to digest, because your stomach only has to work to digest one type of food, with all of its various nutrients.
At the farmers market this week, we bought some watermelons on the cheap. Mom blogged about our picnic lunch yesterday
, and we ate the leftovers from that today, along with one of the smaller watermelons that we bought for $4. I asked the guy that sold them to us if they get any cheaper over the summer, and he said that pretty soon, they would be so abundant that he would eventually lower the price to $1! That means this meal is going to be repeated in our family A LOT this summer!
So anyway, to today's watermelon, we added some Himalayan salt and some Mexican Fiesta seasoning, and it was delicious AGAIN! Not as sweet as yesterday's though, and the small one we ate today was seedless. I am kind of liking the flavor of watermelon seeds, even though it is something I have never really eaten in the past. They also add a nice crunch to the melon, and I have heard they are good for you. Does nyone know if that is true and why?
