healthy eating my way (allergy friendly)

Savory Papaya

Good morning everyone.

Cayenne pepper, and other “hot”spices like chili has been said to amp up the metabolism.  This breakfast salad, is spicy but sweet at the same time, and an excellent way to add more fruit into your diet. Sometimes it is hard to eat 5 fruits or vegetables a day, so why don’t start by eating some of them in the morning. A good start to your day.

How do you know that the papaya is ripe:

Video version


1/2 ripe papaya

5 cherry tomatoes ( we have some called “dulcitas” and they are like the name sweet)

1/2 ripe avocado

Season to taste:

Cayenne Pepper

Maple Syrup


1/2 clove of  garlic: minced

Juice of 1/2 lemon


Cut up the papaya, use a spoon and take out the seeds. Take the peel of, and chop up the papaya. And put in a bowl.

Cut up the tomatoes, and avocado ( the dulcitas are sweet as honey). Add the the bowl.

Squeeze over the lemon juice

Add the minced garlic, and add the seasoning to taste. Mix well, and you are ready to go.

I hope this gives you the same great start on the day, as it did mine.

I wish everyone a great Sunday:)
