Mango Sprouts Summer Salad

One of the things I love about summer is all the abundant fruit the season offers us. It’s hard to say which ones are my favorite these days but mangos are high up on that list, I can’t seem to get enough of them. We are buying them by the cases these days and putting them into our smoothies, ice creams, and this amazing summer sprouts salad. 

Sprouts are another favorite of mine during the summer as they offer a high concentration of nutrients, water content (which helps me stay hydrated) and they taste good with just about anything (especially avocado). I have good news! This recipe has all three, avocado, mango and sprouts. How great is that?!

This mango sprouts summer salad is easy to make, all you need is a handful of sprouts and top it with my favorite easy mango salsa recipe and it’s that easy. I sometimes add extra avocado and mix it all up to make it rich and creamy.

Health Benefits 

Sprouts contain a significant amount of protein and dietary fiber, as well as vitamin K, folate, niacin, thiamin, vitamin C, vitamin A, and riboflavin. In terms of minerals, sprouts contain manganese, copper, zinc, magnesium, iron, and calcium. They have a high number of enzymes which is an important part of the digestive process, helping to break down food while increase the absorption of nutrients by the digestive tract. Sprouts also contain a significant amount of protein making them a great protein source for vegetarians and vegans. Low in calories, sprouts are great for weight loss. Since they are also high in Vitamin A, which has a number of antioxidant properties, this makes them a great immune booster. Vitamin A is also great for improving vision and can help to prevent glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration. Some of the health benefits include prevent anemia, lower cholesterol, reduce blood pressure, prevent neural tube defects in infants, protect against cancer, boost skin health, improve vision, support the immune system, and increase usable energy reserves.
