Did you know that mangos are at the top in the beta carotene realm, summing up at 8061 IU for a medium-size mango? Plus, If you’re looking for a boost in potassium, look no further than a medium mango with its 322.92 mg. It is the perfect fruit to replenish energy after heavy physical exercise like jogging or working out. The magnesium content is 18.63 mg with traces of manganese, selenium, sodium and phosphorus.
Oh mango, my love!
That’s where other smoothie recipe books come in… I often like to get inspiration from a few different sources and one of those sources is the Toadally Primal Smoothies eBook where you can get over 150 different recipes!
Sadly, it doesn’t have a lot of recipes that call for mangos, but that’s okay because I often take a recipe and add in a mango or throw in something else… most of the time it tastes great!
What I like about this smoothie ebook is the amazing variety and all of them using wholesome ingredients. Plus, for those who are coffee lovers… there’s at least 20 different recipes in there!
If you are not convinced to give the beet powdered a try, let me tell you how healthy it is… so healthy that it should be considered a superfood!
Beets are known to contain high levels of important vitamins, minerals and micronutrients. Rich in iron, potassium, magnesium, A, C, B1, B2, B3, B6, calcium, copper, phosphorous, sodium, iodine, boron, soluble and insoluble fiber. They are also a rich source of carbohydrates and protein!
Plus, there are new findings that beets help increase blood flow to the white matter of the frontal lobes of the brain, the area most strongly associated with degeneration that leads to dementia.
Thankfully only one teaspoon of beet root powder is equivalent to one beet. I like to buy my beet powder from Bulk Herb Store (affiliate link). High quality and a great price!
