Who else has a hard time cutting mangos? Yeah, they’re a pain in the 🍑to cut, but they sure do make up for it with their nutrient density. They may be hard to get through, but once you do…They’re pretty much a superfood. Same.
Mangos are high in Vitamin C, which is good for immunity and helps your body absorb iron. They’re are also high in Copper. Copper and Iron are homies and help your body create red blood cells. Lest we forget about the folate and vitamins B6, A, E and K. That vitamin A is great for hair and skin. Niacin, Magnesium, Potassium and Manganese also get a co-starring role in the major motion picture “Nutrient Density of a Mango.” Among their many benefits, Magnesium is shown to help with sleep and Niacin is said to help improve brain function.
One of my favorite ways to eat mango is draped across some rice, sauteed garlic, chopped spinach, black sesame seeds and macadamia nuts. I use homemade veggie stock, coconut oil and coconut milk to amp up the nutrient density of the rice. The rice is also harmonizing to your spleen, ie, it helps digestion. This dish is quick and easy to prepare. And the mango/spinach combo is killer as spinach is high in iron and mangoes are high in vitamin C. Spinach and mango sitting in a tree… The pink rice is the result of the homemade veggie stock I made using beets. It’s cute right? And good for you.
