Yes, you can do it. Easy, delicious home cooking for the family.
Never mind calorie counting and reducing your intake of certain foods, it is very important to eat well and with variety. That way you stay inspired about eating a healthy and balanced diet, instead of staring into your fridge wondering what you can throw together next! I know that most people have busy lives and little time to cook and prepare meals for hours, so I always try and suggest recipes that are easy to put together, whilst tasting delicious at the same time. It is possible! Try delicious and healthy mangos for instance….
They taste so good, it is easy to forget that they offer a variety of health benefits. Mangos are full of vitamin A and C and its antioxidant compounds are suggested to help prevent certain types of cancers. The fiber in mangos, as well as the enzymes that help break down protein make it a great fruit to aid digestion. Internally and externally mangos are great for your skin with suggested age defying properties. They help lower cholesterol and with a relatively low glycemic index, mangos keep your blood sugar balanced and is said to aid diabetes.
You can buy the ripe and ready to eat version in the shop or have the mangos ripen at home so you can use it in your cooking later that week. Here are two ideas to get you started…
If you want a quick and easy breakfast idea that helps you eat well and with variety then add mango to organic bio-live yogurt and sprinkle over some seeds and nuts. An absolutely great start to any day!
If you just fancy something different, try making a mango salsa. Mix together the flesh of a ripe mango with 2 chopped spring onions, 1 tbsp of chopped mint and 1 tbsp of chopped coriander, 1/4 of a red chilli (finely chopped), 50g of crushed salted peanuts, 1 tbsp of lime juice and 1 tbsp of caster sugar.
This goes perfectly with pan-fried chicken and will be ready in no time at all.
