Adventures in fruit: papayayayayayaaaa!

That’s a battle cry. Right?

Papaya is known as a folk remedy for stomach upset. The presence of a heat stable enzyme called “papain” lends credence to this claim as an aid to digestion. Otherwise, it’s loaded with all the standard vitamins and minerals and is delicious to boot. Get to know this familiar stranger. I like mine with a squeeze of lime. I think the tart citrus balances out the honey sweet fruit for a perfect breakfast.

    Ohmigosh, I love papaya! Tip from my Mom: Before you toss out the skins, rub the inner part on your skin for pretty skin. I don’t know that it makes your skin any prettier… but it doesn’t harm it.

    The enzymes in papaya can definitely help break down some of the dead skin from the surface of your face potentially leaving you with a smoother visage. Someone might want to lick your face after too!
