7 Reasons Watermelons Are The Best Fruit, And If You Disagree, You're Bananas

Don't get me wrong, I love all types of fruits! However, I've always had a soft spot for watermelons. They are just so delicious, juicy, and fulfilling. Here are some of the ways that I think that this fruit is the best one of them all.

They are amazingly hydrating 


Don't have a water bottle? Just go ahead and take a big bite out of your watermelon and your thirst should go away. I mean the word water is included within the word watermelon.

Do you even lift bro?


Doesn't it suck when you work out hardcore and the next day you can't even walk properly? According to a recent study, potassium and magnesium-rich juice of the watermelon has the ability to relieve muscle soreness. This means that watermelons will help you walk normally the next day after your workout.

They're your low calorie best friend 


Did you know that watermelons have a very low-calorie count? They aren't just really good, but you can enjoy them without worrying about all the calories you take in. According to LiveScience, they're actually one of the lowest calorie fruits.

Arts and crafts is a big possibility 


Watermelons are not just for eating. They are also a good canvas for anyone who is good at carving. These fruits are a great way to express your creativity.

This fruit demonstrates color at its finest 


Watermelons are so cute because they have a unique red to them. Their base color is green, and these two colors compliment each other so well. I don't know about you, but I am a big fan of the colors it contains.

Variety is a given 


There are so many ways that you can enjoy your watermelon. There isn't just one way or the right way to eat it. For example, you can cut it by slices, cut it up in cubes, blend it, or incorporate it in juices.

Who said it was just made for eating?


If you didn't know, now you do. People tend to use watermelons as organic scrubs for their body. You can enjoy the hydration of the fruits once you apply it on.

I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit more about this majestic fruit. For some people, it is just a regular fruit, but it is my number one fruit on my grocery list.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
