We are mad for MANGOS on Tasty Tuesday! They’re an excellent source of vitamin A & C and have compounds that can lower cholesterol & boost immunity. What’s more, they have TONS of fibre to improve digestion and are rich in carotenes, which are known to protect the body from certain types of cancer.  

Thanks PumpUp member oonaemilia for the photo! What are your favourite mango recipes? We’ll feature them on #foodiefriday this week! Leave your recipes in the comments below or email alessandra[@]pumpup.co!

Hummus is in the spotlight for this weeks #TastyTuesday. This dip, spread, or tasty snack is usually made up of chick peas, olive oil, lemon juice, and salt. Hummus is extremely rich in protein and is amazing at fighting those hunger cravings, while also balancing your blood sugar levels. Hummus comes in so many different flavours and the burst of energy you get from eating it may just have you working harder at the gym!

Happy #TastyTuesday PumpUp! With only 35-50 calories per serving, a peach is the perfect fruit to keep you satisfied and full without all the calories! A peach is actually known as the, “Fruit of Calmness” because of it’s ability to be a healthy stress reliever! The fact that it is full of potassium, fibre, and antioxidants, makes it one of the tastiest super foods of the bunch! Now isn’t that just peachy! ;)

Good ol’ PB is making our #TastyTuesday food list. Aim to have no more than 2 tbsp. if you eat the stuff everyday. It is full of protein and the good heart healthy monounsaturated fats. And here is the best part, it is proven that you will eat less after you eat Peanut Butter as a snack than most other snack foods!

Sprinkle some cinnamon into your life … Okay that sounded like a bad infomercial line… Forgive us! But really you are going to want to use this spice a lot more once you realize its super food potential! Cinnamon actually has a minor effect on improving your metabolism with certain foods, and can improve the way fat cells respond to sugar. It is a great, healthy alternative to sugar. So put a dash on your cereal, oatmeal, apples, or yogurt, and enjoy the taste of this Super Spice!
