Melons such as cantaloupe, honeydew, and watermelon aren’t just bursting with energizing vitamins and minerals. With 90 percent of their weight coming from water, they fight fatigue by keeping you hydrated. That’s good news according to a 2012 Journal of Nutrition study, which found that even mild dehydration can sap your energy and mood. Pick up a cup of diced cantaloupe or watermelon on your way to work for a hydrating midmorning snack or prepare a melon-packed salad to pack for lunches.

I LOVE these kinds of things for a snack. Ive been scared of the multiple outbreaks of bacteria in them though.

I tend to only buy melons locally in the summer. Too many bacterial outbreaks from large farms.
