The combination of sweet watermelon with savory herbs, garlic, and tomatoes makes this raw Watermelon Gazpacho burst with flavor. Refreshing and deeply hydrating, this gazpacho is a perfect light lunch, especially on hot days or when you’re feeling stressed out. It can even be a great breakfast because it’s best enjoyed on an empty stomach.
Watermelon is also known to significantly reduce inflammation, help flush out edema, aid in weight loss, and alleviate depression. Watermelon can also boost the immune system as well as strengthen vision. Watermelon is not nearly as high in sugar as most people think as it has half the sugar than an apple. Watermelon is also loaded with antioxidants that have the ability to neutralize free radical molecules and aid in the prevention of chronic illnesses.
Tomatoes contain their own variety of vitamin C that’s bioavailable to the lymphatic system and liver, supports the immune system to keep it strong against viruses, and prohibits viruses from traveling through the body with ease.
Cucumbers have a fountain-of-youth effect, hydrating us at the deepest cellular level possible. Plus, cucumbers’ cooling effect makes them excellent at rejuvenation and especially effective at cooling a hot, stagnant liver. When eaten on a daily basis, cucumbers can reverse liver damage, dialing back 10 to 15 years of toxin exposure (including from heavy metals and pesticides such as DDT) and poor diet. It makes this vegetable (really, a fruit) a particular ally in reducing bloat.
