Have I mentioned before how much I love to eat melons for breakfast? Since I totally over-stuffed myself last night eating an entire pot of bean-thread noodle soup I figured this morning I would start out slow by eating a solitary large and juicy lope, which only has about 275 calories. However, what my lope lacks in calories it makes up for in nutritional content. One large cantaloupe has 550% of my daily vitamin A and 497% of vitamin C. It also has 30% of vitamin B-6, 14% magnesium, 9% iron, and 7% calcium. As an added bonus, 7 grams of protein, 1.6 grams fat, and a nice dose of 66 grams of carbohydrate to give me energy to face my day. Perhaps I should have given my dog a lope this morning as she appeared to have no desire to face the day when she chose to hide under my desk rather than go for a walk in the rain.
