Dehydrated? Cut up a melon.

For those of you allergic to coconut water (like yours truly) or don’t want the unnatural sugars in sports drinks and are looking for some hydration, try slicing up a melon!  Full with water, potassium, and vitamins, this is a natural source of electrolytes.

off with its head1. Cut off the top and bottom to have a stable platform.

melon edges2. Slide a serrated knife around the edges, following the natural contour of the fruit.

cut along the top3. Cut in half along the flat top.

sliced melon5. Cut into slices of desired thickness.

Magique!  And doesn’t require screwing off any plastic tops.
