Durians! Love them or hate them

Today when i opened the fridge for my coffee, i smelled durians.

yesterday was the third consecutive day that my mom brought home durians!

From Wikipedia (Source):

436 mg (9%)
Edible parts only, raw or frozen.

Source: USDA Nutrient database[41]
Percentages are relative to US recommendations for adults.
Durian fruit contains a high amount of sugar, vitamin C, potassium, and the serotonergic amino acid tryptophan, and is a good source of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.

It is recommended as a good source of raw fats by several raw food advocates, while others classify it as a high-glycemic or high-fat food, recommending to minimise its consumption.

Personally I think because of the nutrients  such as potassium and the serotonergic amino acid tryptophan, it is a good supplement! But I do not recommend eating it daily (such as what my mum is doing now).

Anyways, it is filling and I had it for breakfast today again :)

The durian's smell is its outstanding feature - it is pungent, a bit like a clogged drain or rotten eggs.Financial Express
