As we approach the dry season, you can see the mallams of  (Northern Nigeria)pushing some of the golden melons around.  Do not just pass by.  They are healthy foods loaded with nutrients. Of the many melon types, Golden melons contain the most vibrant taste. From the cultivar’s family of muskmelons, golden melons exist in quite a few varieties such as the Crenshaw, Casaba (coming from Kasaba, an urban area in Turkey), Winter and Persian.

Golden melons or honeydew as it is sometimes called, is among the best choices for a quick bite, particularly for those who have always wanted to live a healthy way of life. Some of its health benefits are stated below:
Zeaxanthin – The light green pigment of the honeydew melon indicates the presence of the carotenoid called zeaxanthin. Zeaxanthin is considered to be a powerful antioxidant that can protect your vision by accumulating in the macula area of your eye where it absorbs harmful blue light, as revealed by research.
Golden melon is a good, low-calorie source of potassium. Potassium is a vital electrolyte used by your body to grow and maintain cells, initiate nerve response and contract muscles. The flavour of honeydew melon is subtler. It is a nutritious fruit.

I tried mixed sum of it with fresh cucumber one on a sunny day for a client and it was great for that diabetic, cool, refreshing and energizing.  You could give it a try too.
