My Top 10 [actually, Top 14] Benefits of Papaya

[below] photo source and great recipe for vegan papaya salad

I've said several times in this Blog, there are many great superfoods,  but Papaya is in my opinion, the most underrated and underutilized superfood just sitting there in the produce section.

Been meaning to do a Top 10 List on "Papaya Power" for a year, so here we go….

[note] If you can't get fresh papaya in your diet every day, you can do like I do, which is add
quality Papaya Powder as one of the superfoods in my daily smoothies.

The New [Superfood] Kids on the Block (Part 13): Rooibos Tea

[photo source and place to order gourmet Flavored Rooibos Teas]

A year ago, after I "deep dived" into Rooibos (a.k.a., South African Red Tea),  Green Tea was immediately "fired" from my regiment, to make way for "The New Superfood Kid on the Block".

Not only because Green Tea has caffeine and Rooibos is caffeine free, but when comparing the nutrient profiles of Rooibos vs. Green Tea, I found that Rooibos blows green tea away……

Food for Thought: “You can be whomever you aspire to be…” !!!

….Photographer Marc Bushelle shoots his 5 year old daughter, Lily, as Trailblazing Women

Lily as Bessie ColemanAbout Bessie Coleman: Bessie Coleman (1892-1926), was first African American to hold an international pilot license and the first African American woman to pilot a plane in the US. Unable to become a pilot in the US, she studied French and went to Europe. When she returned to the US she became a sensation for her ability to do barrel rolls, wing walks and her loop-de-loop trick aviation.

 

"My wife and I really wanted to make sure that our daughter felt fearless," said Brooklyn based photographer, Marc Bushelle.

So, Bushelle and his wife to create their own photo series with their daughter dressed as inspiring women.

 

Lily as Ballerina Misty CopelandAbout Misty Copeland: Misty Copeland is an American Ballet Theater soloist. She once made the statement that "Ballet is something pure in this crazy world". Her start in dance, at 13, was late by ballet standards but she was a true prodigy. She went from knowing nothing to dancing en pointe in three months. Ballet was very structured but her home life was complicated. Her parents divorced when she was three and there was a lot of instability. At one point she was living with her mother in a  motel. Ignoring criticism that she was the wrong shade and shape to be a ballerina she focused on technical excellence. In 2015, she became the first Black Principal dancer in the 75 year history of the ABT. In an interview with “The Washington Post”, she reminds people, “you want to feel accepted, but you don’t have to look like everyone around you, you don’t have to follow the exact same path as someone before you.”
