If you misspell cantaloupe on your iPhone, it will auto correct to Can’t elope, which always makes me laugh 🙂 Why would I be texting about cantaloupe in the first place? Because it’s awesome, that’s why! Cantaloupe is a low-FODMAP friend of ours, but it also has a lot of other benefits for a Sister. Cantaloupe has small calories and big nutrition! A whole large cantaloupe will only set you back at 275 calories and has an A+ nutritional grade.
Why Can’t we Elope with this orange health ball of joy if this fruit has 34% omega 3, 8.3% protein, contains 7.3 grams of fiber, double your daily intake value for vitamin A and quadruple the vitamin C, contains copper, magnesium, potassium, B1, B3, B6, folate, vitamin K, zinc, and water! That sounds like something I’d like to run away with 🙂 It’s obviously the total package, which all girls dream of! All of these nutritional facts give you the optimum nutrition to make you feel full, which prevents overeating later! Cantaloupe digests in 15-30 minutes, faster than any other whole food. When eating cantaloupe, try to eat alone because as we’ve discussed before, eating foods that take different times to digest can be detrimental to your digestive system. Try eating a whole cantaloupe for your breakfast, you’ll be surprised that it will hold you over until lunch!
Did I mention it was delicious? Congratulations on running off with the perfect fruit, you picked a winner! 🙂
