Papaya contains 59 calories each providing a wonderfully filling snack rich in nutrients without the fat, carbs or high calories.

Choose It & Use It

Another great attribute of this amazing healing fruit is that you can get it year round.  The perfect picked papaya should be reddish yellow and ripe to the touch.  They store well and will last fresh in the refrigerator up to one week.
When picking up your perfect papaya steer away from the shriveled, bruised and fruit with dark spots. If there are no reddish yellow papaya available a  green one will ripen left out at room temperature.

Great Papaya Uses:

Papaya goes great in salads, dressing, salsa, in baked goods, as a marinade or topping for rice, veggies or protein.
It also goes nicely on top of desserts, yogurt, cereals and more.
Be sure to get this healing food into your diet.

    My good friend, Thanks for this post titled Papaya A Healing Food « AttractingWellness.net. It so happens that as we speak I just had been discussing with my friends in regards to this topic and for the most part We are in agreement with what you are talking about. I have been preaching about this particular issue a great deal not too long ago with our friends which means that hopefully it will help me make my point.

    I would like to ask you a favor and that is that it would be great if you could go into a little more depth. Or perhaps you can actually point us to a few additional web-sites where we are able to get more information.

    One last thing, Have you seen anything with regards to MUFAs (Mono Unsaturated Fatty Acids). If you have then can you please publish an article about this?
