And the bizarro talent show continues. Last week, we saw a dude snap stuff in half using only his buns of steel. This week, we've got a woman with a dangerous set of thighs. Don't believe me? Watch this video. A watermelon doesn't lie.
A fruit native to South America that is also known as the melon pear or "melumber" as they are said to taste like a cross between a melon (honeydew or cantaloupe) and a cucumber. Pepinos are high in potassium and are full of vitamin A, B and C. Pepinos are smooth and round/ovaly - similar to a large goose egg - and are known for their light yellow skin with purple lines. They are found often in Peru and Chile, and have been exported to many other countries - they have just recently found their way to Britain.

Who could pass up the crisp and refreshing taste of melon?
It's great in fruit salad and it cools you down in the summer. If you are craving a little bit of summer try this incredibly easy snack.
What you'll need:
Melon (any kind but watermelon)
1 cup of cottage cheese
- Take the melon (my fave is cantaloupe) and cut it in half.
- Scoop out all the seeds.
- Fill the melon bowl with cottage cheese or yogurt.
- Serve as is and scoop out bite-sized spoonfuls. Or if you prefer - you can cut the cantaloupe up and serve on a plate.
Why we love it:
Melons like cantaloupe are high in vitamins A and C, and potassium. They are low in calories and easy to digest.
Cottage cheese and yogurt are great sources of calcium and protein - try using the low fat versions.
Plus, it's so easy to make and if you use the melon like a bowl, it is easy to clean up too.
