Honey dew cannot lawan. Cantaloupe still my favourite.
Especially when you placed it in the fridge the night before, then pepagi tu makan...ooo yummsss
Did you know that Cantaloupe is one of the top sources of beta-carotene besides Sweet Potato and Carrots?
Vitamin A, also called retinol, helps your eyes adjust to light changes when you come in from outside and also helps keep your eyes, skin and mucous membranes moist. Vitamin A mostly comes from animal foods, but some plant-based foods supply beta-carotene, which your body then converts into Vitamin A. It also has antioxidant properties that neutralize free radicals in the body that cause tissue and cellular damage - http://www.lifeclinic.com/focus/nutrition/vitamin-a.aspBoost up your Vitamin A intake to fight against viral infections they say.
But then....in the news - Tainted cantaloupes are linked to 13 deaths; 72 illnesses have been reported in 18 states.
cantaloupe warnings continue
p/s nasib baik I ate TEMPATAN only cantaloupe *fuh!* but whatever it is always wash your hands, wash the fruit you are going to eat :)
