Fab mangos we picked up over the weekend.
Sometimes, after a run or a hard workout, all I want to eat are Mangos.
Somehow my body just knows what I need – not dry, hard, food, but rather plump, juicy, succulent and nutritious Mango.
And did you know that one medium-sized mango contains 100 calories, 1 gram protein, 0.5 grams fat, 25 grams of carbohydrate (23 grams of sugar and 3 grams of fiber), 100% of the daily need for vitamin C, 35% for vitamin A, 20% of folate, 10% of vitamin B-6 and 8% of vitamin K & potassium?
Yes indeed, if you have nothing to snack on, snack on the super nutritious Mango.
Mangoes also contribute copper, calcium and iron to the diet as well as antioxidants such as zeaxanthin and beta-carotene. Prevent Heart disease – an increase in potassium intake along with a decrease in sodium intake is the most important dietary change that a person can make to reduce their risk of cardiovascular disease.
Mangoes also great for your hair because they contain vitamin A, a nutrient required for sebum production that keeps hair moisturized. Vitamin A is also necessary for the growth of all bodily tissues, including skin and hair. Adequate intake of vitamin C, which 1-cup of mango per day can provide, is needed for the building and maintenance of collagen, for great skin!
