Watermelon Gazpacho

Watermelon Gazpacho 

sweet and savory

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.
