Made a jug of iced moca cappuccino using hemp mylk sweetened with 2x Medjool dates, raw cocoa powder and chilled fresh coffee. Deliciousness much nicer & healthier than an expensive coffee shop one. Bottled it to go because I'll need an afternoon boost out in this heat.
#givethanks#summersolstice#papaya#fruit#vitamina#ital , Papayas are rich in vitamin A and flavonoids like beta-carotene zeaxanthin, cyptoxanthin and lutein which keep the mucus membranes in the eyes healthy, preventing them from damage. Vitamin A in them also prevents the development of age-related macular degeneration. The best thing about papayas is that the carotenoids present in them are more bio available than those present in other vitamin A rich foods like tomatoes and carrots.
