Pregnancy Fit at 34 Weeks

From Latham Thomas’ “Mama Glow” book:
“This swell-quelling salad is the antidote to edema. If you’re sensitive to onions, you can skip them and it will still be amazing. This seasonal salad is hydrating and cooling on warm summer days and helps to reduce swelling caused by heat, poor circulation and edema. Watermelon is a powerful food, rich in vitamins A, B, C, lycopene, magnesium and potassium.”

One 5-pound watermelon
1 red or Vidalia onion
1/2 cup fresh chopped mint leaves
1/2 cup fresh chopped cilantro
1/2 cup fresh chopped parsley
4 tablespoons fresh lime juice
Salt and pepper, to taste

Cut the watermelon into 1 inch sized chunks and place in a large bowl. Slice the onion into thin strips and soak in enough cold water to submerge the onions, for at least and hour. Discard the water and remove the onions. Add the onions, mint, cilantro, parsley and lime juice to the watermelon. Gently mix and season with salt and pepper.
Finish and enjoy!!

And here is my Pilates video where I am demonstrating a very easy but important exercise. Notice how my stomach moves in and out drastically.

    Hi Martha, thank you for video demonstration. The second one – pilates workout is really amazing, I have heard about those pilates machines but never seen how it works.
