If you know me, you know that my favorite food is watermelon. People who think watermelon tastes the same as cucumber clearly do not have taste buds as evolved as mine. I would suggest that such people be punished, but I think the lack of taste of that delicious watermelon flavor is punishment enough.
Here's a fact about me that you might not know: I love watermelon seeds.
It's long been a source of contention between me and David. He thinks I'm weird because not only do I go out of my way to buy a seeded watermelon (seedless ones just don't taste the same), I also don't bother to scoop out the seeds when I'm eating a slice. Sometimes I'll just cut the top off a watermelon and just dig in with a spoon.
This isn't because I'm lazy and has nothing to do with me not matching my socks. I actually like the seeds. People eat pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and various other seeds -- why should watermelon seeds be treated so differently?
Now that David's got an iPhone and has instant Google, he did a little research for me this morning.
Did you know that a cup of watermelon seeds has 30 grams of protein? It turns out watermelon seeds not only add a wee bit of crunch to your delicious sweet treat, but they are actually really nutritious.
Take that, America!
