Tip of Stefano:
Papaya, a delicious fruit that can be added to all sorts of healthy recipes
Papaya is a delicious fruit. It doesn’t have a particularly distinctive taste; it’s slightly bitter, but has a sweet flavour similar to the flavour of melon. Because papaya has such a neutral taste, it can be used in many different recipes. You can put it in a salad, eat it as a snack with a dipping sauce, add it to smoothies or fruit salads, or, as in this yummy recipe, combine it with seitan to make kebabs for the barbecue!
Papaya: great for your figure and very healthy. Lycopene and antioxidants
Papaya is packed with fibre, vitamins and especially antioxidants. Papaya contains particularly high levels of lycopene. Studies have shown that fruit and vegetables containing lycopene have a preventative effect against cancer. Your body can’t make lycopene for itself, so you have to get it from your food. So it’s a good idea to put papaya on the menu! It’s even better to combine lycopene with olive oil, for better absorption of the active substances.
