A watermelon is 91% water. It is also a source of lycopene. Lycopene travels throughout the body neutralizing free radicals. Free radicals are substances in the body that can cause much damage to us. They are able to oxidize cholesterol, making it stick to blood vessel walls and thicken them which can lead to hearty attack or stroke. Watermelon can stop that from happening.
I went to Jonathans orientation @ Purchase College last week, we went with his parents and had an awesome time. While we were there I visited Manhattanville College where I was offered a position as a graduate assistant for next year. My and Jonathans school are about one mile apart, and they are very close to the city of White Plains which is beautiful....We have alot ahead of us!!
So part of being my sister and brother in law involves coming with me when I get crazy ideas of places I want to go....Sometimes it works out and others times it is just a crazy experience....case in point = Detroit's Eastern Market & Rollerblading Club in Detroit.
Eastern Market was awesome, we got there early in the morning. I got some basil :) but best of all we got fresh ingredients to make Mojitos, nothin like fresh mint and limes!!
The rollerblading club started off as a great idea...we meet this group of 4% normal people and 96% crazy people on the river walk. We rollerbladed as a group throughout the city. It started off as alot of fun...then we were ready for it to be over and get to the bar to watch the Tigers and ended up having to separate from the group...Lets just say it was an experience...
