Mango Madness

Mangoes are a yummy super fruit that are perfect for summer time!

They have a yummy, sweet taste that will satisfy any craving, but they are only 100 calories/cup! What a great snack to have mid-day or a healthy substitute for dessert! 

Not only are they low in calories, but they are full of Vitamin C (100 % of your daily value!) and have lots of Vitamin A. Both are very important in immune function and collage production :) Mangoes also provide lots of dietary fiber!

To enjoy I just cut mine right down the middle and then cute slices from there, and just eat it right off the skin! Its like a piece of tropical heaven!

(like so)

You can also prepare some slices to go for a healthy snack on the run!

Mangoes are also being used in many dishes (like salsas and salads) which is a great way to mix it up and add more fruits into your diet!

So, experiment, have fun, and get mad about mangoes! Enjoy!
