Happy World Vegan Day and Hello November!

Hello lovely Beyond Sushiers,

First of all, in the spirit of World Vegan Day, we hope that you’d treat yourself some delicious vegan meals. We have some great recipes on our Pinterest right here if you want to try something new.

Today, we proudly introduce our November roll and piece of the month. And we have a whole lot of persimmon going on.

ImageIf you’re not familiar with persimmon, we have some information about the fruit for you right here. Persimmon is an oriental fruit native to China, later spread to Japan and California in the 19th century. The fruit is in season from November to February.

The fruit is flavorful and sweet. If you’re not sure how eat it, try our new roll or piece as a start!

It is low in calories and fat, but high in beta carotine and minerals such as sodium, magnesium, calcium and iron. Persimmon also contains twice as much dietary fiber per 100g as apples.

What does this mean to your health anyway?

Persimmon is great for your weight-loss program because of the abundance of dietary fiber. It keeps you full longer and improves your digestive system.

This delicate fruit contains highly beneficial nutrient which protects from free radicals, which help prevent cancer. And for all the lovely ladies out there, persimmon has lots of antioxidants that protect you from early aging. It also increase your immunity system to fight the cold, flu, and other infections. Aren’t these great benefits for the cold weather?

However, there’s just one small thing about persimmon (nobody is perfect, right?). Don’t eat the fruit on an empty stomach though, you probably won’t like your tummy growling.

One last thing before ending this long blog post, there’s a poem goes like this:

“My mother said every persimmon has a sun
inside, something golden, glowing,
warm as my face.”
Li-Young Lee
We know it’s so gloomy and dark outside, but come on out and try the persimmon roll! It may brighten your day. We already know that we have the warm persimmon sun in store for the whole November! If you’ve eaten persimmon before, tell us what you think about this fruit in the comment section.
Until next time, Beyond Sushiers. Enjoy your vegan day and month!
