Food of the Week: Persimmon

31 Jan

Persimmons are by far my favorite fruit. They are orange colored, very sweet and contain lots fiber. They are also rich in vitamin C, beta carotene, calcium, folate, iron, magnesium and potassium.

They are believed to reduce the risk of atherosclerosis, improve lipid function and even combat hangovers!

I eat them by cutting them horizontally in half and scooping the flesh out with a spoon. You can also eat them with the skin, just make sure they are ripe.

Enjoy!
