It’s crazy to think I wouldn’t have even recognized papaya a year ago as I hadn’t even been exposed to it. The first time last year, my mother in law tried to convince my sweet niece and us adults to try it as it’s really good for your digestive system (especially constipation). I was not a fan at first but the taste and flavor grew on me after a while. I think with this fruit, it’s important to get a ripe one to ensure it’s sweet. Also, this is a perfect low FODMAP fruit as you can have 1 cup and remain safe! It can be hard to find a fruit or vegetable that you can have as large as 1 cup portion size.
I mentioned that papaya has digestive benefits but this tropical fruit is packed with so many more health benefits than helping to relieve constipation. It’s packed with antioxidants which we could all benefit from right now, may fight inflammation and also has anti cancer properties. I ate a ton of this low FODMAP fruit it during my post partum period as it’s a great food to eat during breast feeding. It also helped satisfy my constant need for food as breastfeeding or pumping makes you HUNGRY!Print
