We hear all the time how the benefits of mangos can be very personal. Maybe this special fruit evokes fond memories of eating mangos as a child. Or maybe you just love adding a pop of tropical flavor to otherwise simple dishes. But what are the benefits of mangos?
Mangos contain nutrients and antioxidants.
Mangos contain over 20 different vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, vitamin A, folate, and fiber.
One cup of mango provides 35% of your daily vitamin A, 100% of your daily vitamin C, and 10% of your daily vitamin B6. One cup of mango is also an excellent source of folate, making up 20% of your daily requirement and also copper, making up 10% of your daily needs.

Mangos can help you feel full.
One cup of mango contains 12% of your daily fiber. Because fiber slows the absorption of sugar in the bloodstream, the fiber in mangos makes you feel full faster. Since you stop eating when you feel full, fiber can help support weight management.

5 Mocktails For Entertaining: Non-Alcoholic Drinks Everyone Will Love

Image
Entertaining requires plenty of advance preparation and making sure all your incoming guests have what they need is the key to a successful event. However, accommodating everyone can be near-impossible with the ever-growing list of dietary restrictions and preferences. Drinks can be especially tricky, but non-alcoholic drinks that can be prepared in big batches can make things much easier.
No host has time to play short-order bartender while entertaining guests, which is what makes big-batch, nonalcoholic mocktails a must for any party. Non-alcoholic drinks, or mocktails, are an easy way to make sure that no matter your guest list, everyone will have a delicious drink to sip on throughout the night (or day!). If some prefer to add a boozy accompaniment to their glass, so be it—and others will be pleased as punch without.
Here’s a list of our favorite big-batch non-alcoholic drinks we’ll be mixing up before we host! Caramel Apple Mocktail Image and recipe via Savor the Flavor

Let me give you a brain break. Let me show you a cheat code. Let me present an idea that feels about 10x more fancy than it actually is.

It is called caprese chicken with smashed potat
Here’s how you make it:
You sauté chicken. You top it with sundried tomatoes and cheese and put it in the oven. You garnish it. The end.
For the overachievers among us, or honestly, the people who kind of cannot stop with golden crispy potatoes (PRESENT), I would like to suggest the second most trickster thing in this post after the fa…
