10. Watermelon

Who doesn’t love the taste of watermelon? On top of that sweet taste, watermelon is a terrific choice for rehydration in the summer months. Even in other times of the year, watermelon is loaded with vitamins A, C, a few B vitamins, and phytonutirents, not to mention antioxidants for beautiful skin, beta-carotene for the eyes, and citrulline! Watermelons are also a terrific source of potassium, which lowers stress levels and lowers blood pressure as well! Potassium is really important as it not only is necessary for muscle and nerve function, but it also removes excess salt from the body. Although we think of watermelon as a summer fruit, imagine how nice some watermelon water would be to give you a burst of those summertime feelings even in mid-December.

No matter how you slice them, lemons are a “sweet” gift to us from Mother Earth. The refreshing, clean scent alone that revitalizes the mind is enough to keep lemons around, but when you add some juice to a glass of water or tea, you have a revitalizing force which can restore the body to a more alkaline state. Lemons are loaded with immune-boosting vitamin C, potassium, iron, bioflavonoids, B vitamins, magnesium, and calcium, just to name a few of their healthy ingredients. With its powerful anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antiseptic compounds, lemons restore your natural pH to the body, while helping the liver and kidneys to cleanse themselves naturally.


12. Almonds

Think of almonds as Mother Nature’s multi-vitamin! These tasty little nuts are full of macronutrients and micronutrients that simply can’t be beat for revitalizing brain function, skin healthy, muscle building, anemia prevention, erectile problems, and energy galore. Almonds are full of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, as well as carnitine and riboflavin, which are true brain foods. Try some almond butter for a change of pace.
