Papaya and Its health benefits

I have known about Paw Paw for years and used it daily as we always had them growing in our garden in Queensland. I believe them to be very healthy but the seeds taken with caution and moderation as they are quite powerful. Example is only 3-5 seeds twice a day depending on what ails you. The flesh of course is fantastic as a desert or eaten just because you feel like it. Nice with ice cream.

I used them for basically general health and was not aware of the danger of overeating them until now. But anyhow we are all still alive. But they are good for inflammation and well as your gut health which is so important to our every day health.

Upgrade Your smoothie

Flaxseeds

These tiny little seeds really pack a punch. “High in fiber and a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, flaxseeds can help keep you feeling fuller longer,” says Cording.

Unknown

Cinnamon

“Sprinkling a little cinnamon into your smoothie may help you stay satisfied longer,” says Cording. “Aside from tasting great, cinnamon has been shown to stabilize blood sugar levels, which is great if you have a long stretch between your breakfast smoothie and lunch.”

Unknown

Coconut Water

Go for an easy swap. “A lot of people think fruit juice is a healthy addition to smoothies, but it comes with a lot of calories, mainly from sugar,” says Cording. “Unflavored coconut water provides around 40 calories per cup versus about 100 calories per cup of fruit juice, and is a great source of potassium and other electrolytes, which promote hydration.”

Spinach

It’s not just for salads anymore. Cording says, “Packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber, and even a little protein, spinach is a no-brainer for smoothies. If you’ve been hesitant to add veggies to your blended drinks, it’s a great first step. And the best part is, you can barely taste it!”

Chia Seeds

Another seed also packed with fiber and omega-3s are chia seeds, which Cording says are a good source of potassium, magnesium, calcium and iron.

Matcha

Looking for a boost? Try Matcha. Cording says, “This powder made of ground green tea leaves offers a variety of health benefits from powerful antioxidants, potential weight loss, and even a concentration boost.”

Plain Greek Yogurt

If your looking to add a little protein to your drink, Cording suggests trying greek yogurt, which provides around 20 grams of protein per cup. “The creamy texture can make any smoothie taste like a rich treat and the probiotic bacteria in it promotes good digestive health.”

Wheat Grass

Wheatgrass has twice the amount of Vitamin A as carrots and is higher in Vitamin C than oranges! It contains the full spectrum of B vitamins, as well as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sodium and potassium in a balanced ratio. Wheatgrass is a complete source of protein, supplying all of the essential amino acids, and more. It has about 20% of total calories coming from protein. This protein is in the form of poly peptides, simpler and shorter chains of amino acids that the body uses more efficiently in the blood stream and tissues.
