Mango Impossible…

The tan from my Jamaica trip is quickly fading but the memories and videos are still there to remind me of the fun in the sun that I will be having again next year at January in Jamaica 2013. Will you be joining me? Details to come. Speaking of details, we’re putting together the schedule of events for Camp Rawnora for 2012. Be sure to visit the Camp Rawnora site to find out what’s uncooking. We’ve got a Spring Detox Weekend and Forage scheduled for April and 5 Day Cleanse/Detox on the calendar for May… Weight Loss Camp in June… just check the calendar, more details to come.

Enjoy these mango factoids and the video from Jamaica below…

  • Mangoes originated in India and eventually spread from there throughout the globe.
  • They contain high amounts of vitamin C, A, B6, other B vitamins, prebiotic fiber, potassium, copper, amino acids, beta carotene and a variety of antioxidants.
  • 2 chemicals in mangoes (triterpene and lupeol) have been shown effective against prostate and skin cancer.
  • Mango skin and leaves contain the chemical urushiol  which is also present in poison ivy and poison oak. This accounts for many people having an allergic skin reaction to mango.
