Ginger-Melon Runners' Rescue Remedy Recipe

Melon has a higher G.I. than most fruit; it has a high water content and it is particularly refreshing. Athletes will often eat melon to recover and rehydrate straight after a long exercise session for this reason. Ginger is known for its anti-inflammatory qualities, so make up this juice in advance and let it work on your tired muscles as soon as you get back from your hot and sweaty workout ... or just enjoy it as a delicious and refreshing drink the next time you are thirsty.
