So I'm pretty new to mangos... When I was a kid I didn't like them but am developing a taste for them now that I'm eating healthier. I'm curious how many mangos do you guys eat when you monomeal with them? I see the number 130 cal/mango thrown around... So would 6 or 7 mangos make a good monomeal?
I know this seems like a silly question but I'm still at the stage where I have to "force" some of the fruit in to egt to my calories for the day.
Depends how big they are. I eat 8 or 9 in a meal of the small yellow Ataulfo mangos (see pic). Red/mexican mangos can really vary in size. I have eaten 4 HUUGE ones and have felt stuffed. As always, the more the better and its always good to listen to your body and experiment.
There are great deals on high quality mangos right now in the US. Whole Foods sells a crate at 20% discount.
Oh these are my favorites!!! US Whole Foods? Do I google them?
I just recently ate 16 ataulfo mangoes in one sitting, and have eaten 6 large atkins mangoes for a meal.
nope they are very sweet almost like honey, they shouldnt be sour
These are not orange enough and they are still smooth. They will get a beautiful orange with fine wrinkles. Might even have a black spot or two. It´s all good.
yep, and if they do but still aren't sweet, return them for a refund. Stores (should) appreciate the feedback on produce that's prime or less than.
If I were a manager, I'd want to keep any customer buying by the crate very happy.
You have to wait until they turn a deep orange color and develop very fine wrinkles in the skin. Yellow is not ripe enough.
Ataulfo mangos are my favorite fruit so I can eat quite a bit. I used to eat about 8-9 per meal but found this to be more than I really needed. I am just in love with the flavor so I eat however many I bought. Now I am satisfied after 4-5, though I'll get hungry again in 2-3 hours. If I need to go a while without eating I'll eat double that.
I don´t ever force myself to eat anything. I eat about 3 mangoes at a time. I just make sure I carry my fruit everywhere. If I get a twinge of hunger, I eat something.
I eat about 4 big KENTmangos and feel absolutely satisfied. I've never eaten Ataulfo mangos :( ..look soooo good :-)
