If you’ve been following along with me, you know that each week I, and a group of fellow bloggers, write and post about a particular power food from a book called Power Foods: 150 delicious recipes with the 38 healthiest ingredients, published by the editors at Healthy Living, a Martha Stewart publication. And by the way, we devote this week to the papaya. The book has only one to two paragraphs to summarize the nutritional benefits of a particular food, so each week I complement this with further research. I usually start with The World’s Healthiest Foods and then continue from there. I came across an article on a site that does not usually post health information. What impressed me was that she had 169 responses; many are testimonies from people who benefited from eating papaya, the seeds, tea from the leaves, or papaya supplements. I always take testimonies with a grain of salt, but. The World’s Healthiest Foods also indicates many of these benefits. As you’ll see, this power food is pretty potent!
