High Fiber Friday

Mango

Today we will talk a little about Mango. I never liked Mango until I was pregnant with my son, for some reason my heart would miss a beat just at the smell of Mango, I jus tcould not get enough and when I found out that for every mango I got 4 grams of fiber I was sold. I am happy to say that the love for the fruit that I developed while pregnant has stayed with me, and I get a few every week.

Mangoes help combat cancer it boosts memory, regulates the thyroidaid and digestion and helps shield against Alzheimer's. One Mago has aproxametly 135 calories, > 1g of fat, 4mg of sodium, 323mg of potassium, 35 carbs, 3.7g fiber, 31g sugar, and 1g protein. Mango also has a lot of vitamin C and lets not forget they taste good.
