Today we are paying homage to an absolute super food – Papaya, in particular papaya seeds!!!
Not only is this soft, pretty pink fruit packed with vitamin C and A, it’s also noted to be helpful for reducing diabetes, excess cholesterol and eases period pain. It’s been used as a meat tenderizer for years as it also contains papain, a digestive enzyme with helps break down protein, which can also help your body digest proteins too.
I love eating papaya on it’s own or adding it to a fruit salad topped with nut cream. I’m the only fan of it in my house, so I don’t get it that often, but I got asked a question when I posted a picture of it on my Facebook page asking:
Leah, do you do anything with the papaya seeds?
Great question! So I thought I’d answer in the quick video below
