Working from home, I don’t eat particularly well. It should be the opposite: more time to cook, prepare lunch and so on. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work like that. I am mostly sustained by wholemeal toast in the morning, and Dr Pepper in the afternoon.
Today, I decided not to do that. I bought a melon.
It’s a Charentais melon (or ‘Sharon Tate‘ melon). It’s quite pricey at £2.49, but I am treating myself so it’s okay.
From the outside, it looks a lot like the standard Canteloupe. It’s so much more rewarding than that. Let’s have a look inside.
What a lovely burst of colour coming through.
Look at that delicious flesh.
Deseeded, I quartered the melon then cut it into small cubes.
Attempting to shoehorn my 5-a-day (35-a-week) into one go, I ate it all. I have a burning sensation in my throat and a slightly odd vitamin C high.
