Beautiful on the inside too…

Healthy

It’s not often found a food product that looks good, smells good, tastes good and it’s also good for health… at least nutella it’s not, neither salty chips ๐Ÿ˜ž

That’s why I’m in love with berries…any kind. Strawberries ๐Ÿ“ blueberries, raspberries, blackberries… they smell delicious, they are super tasty and also full of vitamins and qualities. I’m not into fruits much…I don’t like bananas ๐ŸŒ except the green ones, not a fan of oranges ๐ŸŠ either, hate apples ๐ŸŽ only like the green very sour ones (hard to even bite) ๐Ÿ but I do love lemons ๐Ÿ‹, watermelons ๐Ÿ‰ and exotic weird fruits as long as they are either very sweet or very sour, theres no in between

The raspberries though…are something special for me

Back home I was eating them every summer…moving out here I changed a lot of my eating habbits due to the fact that I couldn’t find the same products or the same taste and neither my lifestyle was not the same anymore but the raspberries remained on my list

Lately I made a small research about the benefits they got and thought of sharing them with you

The five biggest benefits of raspberriesย 


  1. Losing weight –ย They are low in calories and fat – 100g = 52 calories but 6.5g of fiber. ย  6,5g fiber is 16% of the daily recommended intake which is pretty good for only 100g of raspberries
  2. Containsย Xylitol which can be helpful for people with diabetes to regulate wide fluctuations of blood sugar levels due to its quality of absorbing into the blood slower than the simple sugar

3. Reduces wrinklesย ๐Ÿ‘ต๐Ÿฝ – raspberries can be used as a natural face mask (unless you’re me – I eat half while applying it on my face) 1 cup of yoghurt and 2 cups of raspberries- -> blend until it becomes smooth and apply it on your face for 15mins then wash it off with tepid water and voilรก – got yourself a baby face ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿพ


4. Prevents infections and cancer thanks to the ellagic acid which is found in the raspberries

The ellagic acid is a natural nutrient which it’s not a cancer treatment by itself but very ย important when added in the “cancer diet” helping with keeping the cancer cells from spreading.

5. Feminine healthย – raspberry leaves ๐Ÿƒ can be used as herbal teas โ˜•๏ธ ๐ŸŒฟ helpful in regulating menstrual cycles and decreasing the heavy menstrual flows. For future mommies๐Ÿคฐ the raspberry tea relieves nausea, reduces the pain and helps in childbirth. For lactating mommies this tea or simply eating the fruit will help to increase the production of breast milk ๐Ÿผ ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป


Now if you’ll excuse me, I gotta grab some because from all these pictures I got a big appetite for raspberries

Love you peaches!
