There’s still time to enjoy the last of the summer mangoes. They make a delicious sweet addition to any meal, and here they are paired perfectly with the spicy beef and the creamy avocado.
Mango tastes so delicious that often we forget how good it is for us. But there are a whole stack of reasons to get stuck into these golden fruits, especially when you are trying to lose weight.

Benefits of eating mango

1)   It can prevent cancer – due to its antioxidant compounds. It can protect against colon, breast, leukaemia and prostrate cancers.
2)   Helps to reduce cholesterol – due to the fibre content
3)   Gives you clear skin – mango is rich in beta-carotene, a form of Vitamin A that acts as an antioxidant
4)   Full of Vitamin A – one cup of mango gives you 25% of your daily requirements, which means your eyes will be well looked after
5)   Low GI – so it won’t spike your sugar levels
6)   Improves digestion – which means it will get things moving
7)   Vitamin boost – they contain Vitamins B, C and E, plus 25 different carotenoids to keep your immune system in good shape  mangoes - thai beef and mango salad
