Papaya the powerhouse of all superfoods


As you know I'm super thrilled to team up with Papaya Australia and love experimenting and exploring various ways I can use this fruit of the Angels. Papaya peppercorns


After you cut a papaya in half, scoop out the seeds with a large spoon. They are encased in a gelatinous substance that can be rinsed away in a strainer under running water. They are slightly bitter and have a spicy, peppery flavor. The seeds can be added to salad dressings or eaten as is. They can also be sprinkled on salads or soups or added to any dish as a substitute for black pepper.

Here's some Papaya Seed Benefits; According to the July 2011 issue of the journal "Molecules," papaya seeds contain phenolic and flavonoid compounds that have antioxidant properties. The April 2011 issue of the "Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry" reports that the seeds may contain immunomodulatory compounds that can slow tumor growth. Papaya seeds also contain compounds that may kill parasites, according to the June 2011 issue of the "Asian Pacific Journal of Tropical Medicine."

MY fave papaya recipes so far;

Papaya Popsicles

Chop and dice up the papaya and simply place in a high speed blender with some lime juice and pour into Popsicle moulds.

Papaya salsa salad & egg

This is such an awesome combo! Fry up your eggs sunny side up (or your preferred way) chop up some capita in, papaya, squeeze a lime and shred some mint over YUM!

Papaya Boats

Grab your favourite fruit and finely chop & a scoop of yoghurt and that's it!

This is what I call no cleaning up after a healthy snack! No bowls to clean up as the papaya is the bowl!!
