Add some spice to your life. The spicy Chile has multiple health benefits. It has been shown to contain capsaicin which blocks the production of prostate cancer cells,and protects against blood clots. Others have used it to increase their metabolic rate to assist in weight loss. Interestingly, some report that when used in a topical cream, chiles can also help with psoriasis.

 Mangos

 

Did you know that Mangos are high in Vitamin C, Vitamin E, potassium and fiber. They have a low glycemic index which makes it a great fruit for diabetics.

If you buy one that isn't quite ripe, place it in a paper bag in a dark place and in a few days it will be ripe and ready.

 

Eat raw for the most nutritional impact.

 

For an idea or two on how to use mangos check out "The Great Mango Book" it is full of recipes.

Onions

 

Did you know onions are a good source of vitamin C, have an anti-inflammatory effect, and help prevent blood clots?

While they can be stored in a cool dark place (without touching each other) for several months, the longer they are stored the less vitamin C content they will have.
