The Mighty, Mighty Mango...Yum

Hi everyone, So each week we choose a seasonal, nutrition packed food to highlight, and include a few recipes throughout the week using this ingredient. This week we have chosen the delicious, juicy mango.

Check out these nutrition stats: The nutritional value is per 100 g (3.5 oz) and rich in many phytonutrients and antioxidants. It is high in fiber, vitamin A, C and E (25%, 76% and 9%) and vitamin B6 and K(11% and 9%). Let's not forget the pulp and peel which has Omeg-3 and -6 polyunsaturated fatty acids!

So far we've picked two delicious recipes that host this tropical, summer treat. Since they're not our original recipes, I'm going to post the link to each. The first recipe, Spinach, Avocado and Mango Salad can be found here: http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/spinach_avocado_mango_salad.html. The second recipe, Grilled Mahi Mahi with Mango Salsa, can be found by clicking this link: http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/grilled-mahimahi-with-mango-salsa-10000001940993.

We'll be back later this week with a dessert recipe featuring, you guessed it, the mango :) Enjoy these recipes and let us know what you think.

Yours in health,
