Wait, that’s quite a few fruits! But you get my point, right?
I’ve been having mangoes everyday for the past month. Not a mango a day but many mangoes a day! I’ve been having mango shake everyday for breakfast, made with two mangoes and with chunks of the fruit floating in it. Yummmmeeee!! And I have a mango again for dinner. That’s 3 mangoes a day, whereas mangoes are FORBIDDEN in my diet chart!
But what the heck? Dieticians are one of the most out-of-touch-with-reality people in the world. I’ve already written about how they prescribe diets that are unrealistic, troublesome & difficult to abide by. And then they go ahead and ban delicious fruits such as mangoes, bananas & grapes from your diet! Such morons! BTW…what’s the deal with ‘litchis’? Are they banned too?
Anyway, coming back to mangoes….I’ve discovered this new specie of mangoes called ‘Himsagar’. ‘Himsagar’ is a Bengal mango. It’s really sweet and heavenly. Mango experts consider it to be one of the most popular & lip-smacking varieties of mangoes. Unfortunately, unlike ‘Alphonso’, ‘Himsagar’ has not made it to foreign shelves yet as the quality checks required for exporting mangoes do not exist in West Bengal.
Speaking of ‘Alphonso’, I think they are way over-hyped. Like Deepika Padukone! There are other varieties of mangoes that are much sweeter and much more delicious than ‘Alphonsos’. Like ‘Zardalu’, ‘Dasheri’, ‘Langra’, ‘Maldah’ etc.
Did you know that India alone grows more than 40 varieties of mangoes? So how can those stupid dieticians expect Indians not to binge on them??!!
Fruits are supposed to be good for us, and last I checked mango was a fruit :D
