Tip - Watermelon helps with swollen feet during pregnancy

When I was pregnant with my daughter I was obsessed with eating any and all fruits that I could get my hands on. One of the biggest issues I had during pregnancy was swollen ankles. It was so bad that I was not able to walk and some days trying to get my socks and shoes on.

Aside from being a cool treat during the summer it did wonders on my swollen ankles. I would eat it everyway I could my favorite was a bowl of watermelon chunks with a few dollops of whip cream. I still eat that now.

      Watermelon is a diuretic, which means it makes you pee. :) Good, good for you. No way to lose. :D
