Okay, you may want other foods, but this is one you will love.
A ripe RED papaya (AKA pawpaw, but be not mistaken, the yellow one is different and not as good!)
Nuts and seeds (optional)
Maybe some tahini and coconut if your keen!
And you're on your way to a papaya boat! This is one of my favourite summer breakfasts. Red papaya is in season and so delicious. I love cutting in long ways in half, scraping the seeds out and filling the whole thing with goodies that I can find in the cupboard. But to keep it simple and quick, I will squeeze the lime all over the papaya and pour in some of my home made granola but if you haven't got that, mix some nuts and seeds together if you like. Squeeze more lime, drizzle tahini (there is black and white tahini on this one just cos I could) and you about ready. If you love tahini and coconut like me, drizzle and sprinkle that over the top. Spoon away, a ripe papaya is easy to scoop out with your spoon.
If you not keen on the fillings, make up your own, get adventurous, the most simple one that i enjoy is just lime and papaya. But branch out and thats how I came across the great tahini, coconut and lime. Having a single fruit for breakfast is great for your digestion. Your stomach with thank you! Let me know what fillings you come up with!
So many good benefits from papaya. Its high in antioxidants, Vitamin A (skin and hair), and used to be put on topically in promoting wound healing and preventing infection of burned areas. It contains an enzyme called papain that aids in digestion and has an anti inflammatory (choline) that also aids our bodies in sleep, muscle movement, learning, memory fat absorption and way to many more! I think you get the point. Its pretty good for you. If you would like to read more on if benefits, here is a link for you.
Enjoy. T x.
