Raw food combining has definitely provided me a whole new insight into the benefits of eating fresh watermelon. Watermelon can be best eaten at the end of the day, as an alternative to a raw or raw/cooked meal. Lower in calories and higher in water content then many other plant foods, to be eaten as a fruit-meal you’ll need to eat far more than just a few cut slices.
For digestive healing & the treatment of inflammation caused by food intolerances, intermittent fasting (i.e. from lunch day 1 through to breakfast day 2) and consuming watermelon meals is very effective. Watermelon is gentle on the stomach, however Crohn’s sufferers may need to avoid the seeds.
