The New Superfruit You’ve Never Heard of But Need to Try

Move over, açai—there’s a new superfood in town. Well, it’s new to us, anyway. Pitaya, aka dragon fruit, is a staple in Central American diets, and now the bright magenta-hued fruit has made its way north. Aside from its good looks and color, pitaya is loaded with nutrients. While the whole fruit isn’t always easy to find in stores, it’s readily available frozen, and just as beneficial for you that way: One 100g packet is a good source of fiber and magnesium, and also lends vitamin C, iron, and B vitamins, all for 60 calories. (You already know that brightly-colored fruit and vegetables are loaded with health-boosting antioxidants.) It’s a perfect base for smoothies and smoothie bowls, like this one: Pretty pitaya (dragonfruit) smoothie bowl! Recipe coming soon… Thanks @pitayaplus for the lovely fruit. #smoothie #smoothiebowl #vegan #grabaspoon #coconut #VSCOcam A photo posted by Beth Lipton (@cookiepie0402) on Jul 1, 2015 at 10:14am PDT I particularly love the Pitaya Plus brand, since it’s certified organic by the USDA, and founder Chuck Casano is also on a social mission in Nicaragua, where he sources much of the fruit, scoops it out and freezes it in a solar-powered factory, then uses the discarded skins for compost. All that, and he employs local single mothers, too. You can also find pitaya in many juice bars, or, if you prefer dried fruit, Navitas Naturals sells it that way ($7.30 for 3 oz., amazon.com), so you can snack on it or cut it up and sprinkle it on oatmeal or a salad. And if you do find it at a market near you, don’t be afraid to slice in and give it a try—despite pitaya’s wild looks, its taste is mild and lightly sweet and tart.

3 Delicious Ways to Get Creative With Your Veggies

Bored with the same old salads and green juice? Time to get creative! Check out these fun ideas for falling in love with your vegetables all over again, from Candice Kumai, chef and author of the forthcoming book Clean Green Eats ($19; amazon.com). Spiralize your squash Get your pasta fix by putting yellow squash or zucchini into a spiralizer, then sautéing the “noodles” lightly in olive oil. “Just toss them with your favorite marinara and you’ve got a low-carb, high-fiber dish!” Kumai says. “If you’re still craving real pasta, you can do half and half.” Don’t have a spiralizer? Use a peeler to create squash “ribbons.” Shave your sprouts Cut Brussels sprouts in half, then carefully use a mandolin slicer to thinly shave them. “You can sauté them in oil and season, or drizzle on a homemade balsamic vinaigrette for a salad. I like to add blue Roquefort, walnuts and sliced pear for sweetness,” Kumai says. “Fry” your sweet potatoes You probably already order sweet potato fries at restaurants every chance you get. Why not make a healthy version at home? All you have to do is peel two medium sweet potatoes, then slice lengthwise. Lightly coat them in coconut oil and bake at 375°F for 40 minutes. Turn them halfway through. This article originally appeared on Health.com.
