Before I Hit The Twig: Eat Ripe Mango!


This one task in the book "2001 Things To Do Before You Die" is the easiest for me to do...and I have done this more than a hundred times because mangoes abound in the Philippines. Mango trees are evergreens that will grow to 60 feet tall and require hot, dry periods to set and produce a good crop. Philippines being a very tropical country has produced the best mangoes ever!!!


A comfort food, Mangoes really can make you feel better! Beyond being delicious and rich in vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants, mangoes contain an enzyme with stomach soothing properties. These comforting enzymes act as a digestive aid and can be held partially responsible for that feeling of contentment we experience during and after our daily mango ritual. Yes, it is quite natural to crave for mangoes! I love it!!!
