Feijoa Bowl to Commemorate Autumn

img_8020

This is a Feijoa-licious dish to celebrate the end of Autumn and the Feijoa season! 🍂

Before arriving in New Zealand, I had never heard of or tasted a Feijoa.

Now I’ve fallen in love with them from the very first bite! 😋

I even started enjoying them with the skin on!

It’s where most of the health benefits are! 😉

“Researchers from the University of Auckland studied the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of 12 fruits, discovering that feijoa and blackberry show the strongest anti-inflammatory response. [full research here]

“In feijoa, the skin has more bioactivity than the pulp [33]”

As if they weren’t sweet enough, in this bowl I added:

  • some Cinnamon
  • Garlic Hummus
  • Tomato Basil Passata
  • Tamarind Chutney
  • and my favourite of all, @raglancoconutyoghurt ‘s Turmeric & Mango flavoured coconut yogurt! 😁

How’s your autumn been?
