Hello to All and Welcome Back to our Veggie Series.

It has been quite a while but back and in action.

Today, we will review a vegetable known to many, Dasheen!!!

Dasheen, which one is that you may ask? Well, it is also called, Taro, Yautia, Eddo, and Kalo depending on the region in which you are living.

In the comments, please add the name that it is known by where you live.

Without further ado, let us dive in: “Dasheen – Roots & Tubers”

“Dasheen (also known as taro, yautia, eddo, and kalo) is a starchy root vegetable (colocasia esculenta) that grows in tropical and humid environments, such as the Pacific Islands and Hawaii. Dasheen has fuzzy brown skin with distinctive rings, and pale white flesh speckled with purple.”

“Its starchy texture is similar to a potato, but it’s sweeter. It’s used in a wide variety of ways, including boiled, roasted, deep-fried, or steamed, as well as used in everything from ice cream to cakes!”

The root can’t be eaten raw, and gloves should be worn before preparing it, as it can cause skin irritation when uncooked.

“Iron and copper are both required by your body for proper blood circulation. Iron is a significant component in blood and is primarily responsible for the transport of oxygen in the body. Taro roots, therefore, help prevent iron deficiency and help avoid fatigue, headaches, and lack of focus.”

“While this is enough of a reason to be a fan of Arbi already, a better blood circulation system can mean improved blood flow to the scalp and hair follicles which coupled with the fact that taro roots are bursting with folates and iron which are key to new hair cell growth and the health of your follicles. These nutrients help by adding volume to your hair by promoting the growth of new hair strands.” – “Taro root is loaded with Folate and iron, which are essential for the strength of your hair follicles. It helps in adding volume to your hair by encouraging new hair sprouts. Copper present in the root can also prevent greying of hair and make it shiny and black. It is also believed to reduce the breakages of hair.”

Fascinating how this planet holds the key to every single one of our body’s needs and especially our hair, if we were able to eat all the fruits and veggies that grew in our regions chemical free, our health would improve so much, but as that is not always possible, continue to do the best you can.
