Watermelon Watermelon

This is another rave about Clean Eating magazine.  I love their two week plans because if something is involved in a recipe {like watermelon} it will show up in the meal plan many other times in many different ways so that you can be sure to use that melon until it's gone!  I love watermelon so much, but in the old days I wouldn't have been able to deal with a huge watermelon. It would stress me out that there is SO MUCH OF IT!  I am also ashamed to say that we would probably have let a portion of it go to waste either because it would go bad or we would get tired of eating it plain over and over.

Here are some recipes that have involve watermelon.  Sources: Clean Eating magazine July/Aug 2013 & July/Aug 2010.

Melon Salad (2 servings)
4 cups chopped watermelon
1 cup diced cucumber
1/2 cup feta
1/4 cup mint
2 tbsp. balsamic

Watermelon Mint Smoothie
2 cups chopped watermelon
1 cup coconut milk
1/4 cup spinach
2 tbsp. mint

1 cup watermelon
(repeat often as a side for breakfast, lunch, or dinner)

1 cup watermelon + 1/4 cup feta

1 cup cubed watermelon + 1/4 cup chopped walnuts

If this isn't enough, did you know that there is an entire website dedicated to watermelon which features recipes?  There are also some watermelon lobster tacos

  1. Perfect, we just bought our first watermelon of the summer today. :) I have to admit, we usually get it all eaten plain before we have to throw it away.
