Raisins are easy to carry with you, taste good and have a host of other health benefits. Raisins are rich in antioxidants, which protect our bodies against free radical damage and have been linked to Cancer prevention. They contain many B vitamins, known for boosting energy. They are a good source of fiber, which is important for your body to stay regular. Contrary to what you might think, although sweet, raisins do not cause cavities. The oleanolic acid found within them promotes oral health, by killing the bacteria that causes cavities & periodontal disease. Raisins are also a preventative measure for Macular Degeneration, which has to do with the health of your eyesight. Raisins contain Calcium which in known for promoting bone health. Eating enough calcium will also help protect against osteoporosis.
I’ve always liked raisin, but now I think that I’ll give them a little more credit, along with the almonds I featured a few weeks ago. That being said, I thought I’d share this recipe for Picadillo Tacos (which call for raisins). Click here for the recipe.
¡Buen provecho! Let me know what you think!
