Conscious Cooking 8.4.16

Papaya is one of the true champions of digestive and heart health. Just the insane amount of Vitamin C in this puppy is intriguing, then add that to Vitamin E, beta-carotene and folate.

We have a volunteer papaya in the back yard, but she isn’t currently fruiting. So, we found this giant fruit at the market (about 11 inches long, woo-wee!). We added some bananas we harvested from Kurt’s father’s house, added some local honey, and of course, the special touch of coconut oil. Boun Appetito!

Breakfast. Lunch. Snack.
