How To Use Fresh and Dried Moringa Leaves in Your Everyday Meals

 

Why You may not have heard about Moringa or seen it is your local supermarket.

Moringa Leaves are part of the Phillipine and Asian Diet. Many people grew up in their homeland eating this food everyday. They know it well and know of its exceptional nutritional properties.

Moringa leaves are spicy and delicious. It is something that the family will ask to eat!. They really do taste wonderful.

Most American families are not using Moringa leaves in their diet. They have no idea what it is and have never heard of it. The main reason is at present you do not find them in American Markets like Vons or Albertsons.  You find them in Asian Markets.

 

The problem there, is that many communities do not have Asian Markets so people have never heard or seen it.  

 

The Moringa Tree needs warmer climates so many people in states where there are harsh winters cannot grow it themselves or buy it at the store.

 

Asian Markets are most often getting their fresh Moringa leaves from Hawaii or Arizona.

 

There are many great Asian dishes to use Moringa in but you can use it in the typical American cooking as well.

 

Moringa Leaves are superior to lettuce, spinach, and most all the fresh leaves you normally put in your salads. Go here to check out the gram for gram differences.

 

When you eat them fresh, they are full of healthful enzymes that give your body the power to work more effectively. This is not even talking about all the other nutrition in these little leaves.
