  3. Keep turning the seitan and papaya kebabs and dribble oil over them from time to time.

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.

At the age of 33 he was going with all guns blazing, but he didn't spare a thought for his own health - he smoked, drank a lot, worked up to 16 hours a day and drank around two litres of coffee daily. Then he developed two serious hernias, as well as being very overweight. He realised that he could not continue this way and decided on a complete turnaround. He quit drinking and smoking and slowly changed his diet, until he finally went almost completely vegan.Vegan, a step further than vegetarian Stefano's recipes are all vegan.
