Saijan the day- Fiji!

IMG_1588-0.JPG

Whilst working on a volunteer nutrition programme in Fiji, our director introduced us to this amazing superfood saijan (pronounced si-jan) or known as moringa. This grows wild in the backyard. It has a slight bitter taste and is a great digestive so can be made into a tea and is also fab to throw in smoothies, salads, curries, pasta, stirfries, casseroles, eggs or anything.

Saijan is an excellent source of Vitamins K, B2 and C, with plenty of iron. It is also a very good source of calcium and magnesium, and has good protein content. It is believed to have healing properties and contains calcium, iron and vitamins which could help expectant mothers ease their delivery and help mothers increase their milk flow.  It also helps fight fatigue and is a good blood cleanser and blood builder.

Now how do I smuggle some into our country? 🙂
