  • There are some clever ways of adding this super fruit to your diet
  • Here are some great recipes of delicious papaya salads

Papaya is considered to be one of the most nutritious foods, which is available all year round. It is juicy, soft and tastes sweet if it is ripened. Nutritionists suggest consuming low-calorie papaya every day for strong immunity and smooth digestion. In many households, papaya is a must-have breakfast staple for the various health benefits it provides. 'Healing Foods', a book by DK Publishing House, describes papaya as an antibacterial food with considerable antioxidant properties due to a high amount of vitamin E, vitamin C and beta-carotenes. The natural fibre of the fruit controls blood pressure and unhealthy LDL cholesterol levels. With these and more such advantages of consuming papaya, it is only wise to have it regularly in some form or another. 

Even though papaya is supposed to be sweet, but many times it turns out to be bland or in some cases, even sour. That's why not everybody likes to eat papaya directly, in its raw form. However, there are some clever ways of adding this super fruit to your diet, and what better way to consume it than in a healthy salad?

Here are some healthy recipes of salads with papaya as the main ingredient -
