Fresh melon boats are the perfect refresher. A sweet-and-sour glaze gives the fruit unexpected zest and dresses it up for a summery lunch. This recipe is low in kilojoules and provides 7 g fibre per serving.
Like all yellow and orange fruit and vegetables, rockmelon is rich in beta carotene, an antioxidant converted by the body to vitamin A. Beta carotene may provide protection against heart disease by preventing LDL (low-density lipoprotein, known as ‘bad’ cholesterol) from oxidising and promoting the development of artery-clogging plaque.
