Coconut Water & Rose Apples For Breakfast

 

 

 

 

 

I should be attending a family reunion very soon at an exotic restaurant. I have a dress in mind but I have to shape up a bit to fit in it once more.

I selected this dress as a method of cost cutting for the occassion. Since it's summer and there are so many fruits in season at this time I can make a fruit salad everyday yay! I tried it for one day only.

I was still hungry . So fruits for dessert yeah! That works just fine for me. As for fitting in that dress the best thing I can work with right now is no food after 6:00 pm.

Just coconut water and rose apples if I am hungry after 6:00pm. Rose Apples also known as Syzygium Jambos are rich in dietary fiber, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, calcium, niacin, thiamin, potassium, and sulfur.

They also contain betulinic acid, jambosine, and friedelolactone. A 100 gram of rose apples has 29 mg calcium, 123 mg potassium, and 13mg sulphur.

Side Effects 

  1. A high amount of cyanide or prussic acid  is in the leaves, seeds, and roots of rose apples which  is dangerous for health.The cyanide is released in the stomach as the seeds or leaves are digested, so it may take several hours for the symptoms of poisoning to appear. So, do not eat the seed, the root or the leaves.

 

  You may consult with a Medical Doctor before including  rose apples in your diet.
