Lychees are now in season so it’s time to start devouring these juicy bits.  The canned variety is stored in syrup and terribly unhealthy.  Most bars retain the syrup to make cocktails.  There’s no need to do it as the sweetness will mask everything.

Lychees are high in oligonol which is suppose to improve bloodflow, reduce weight and protect skin from sun damage.  It’s a source of vitamin B and C with healthy amounts of potassium and copper.  They are also great for a post workout meal as it has the ability to relieve pain and shrink swollen glands.

I buy it at the local markets for $16 HKD/pound.

Cherries are also in season but they have yet to hit their peak so they are still expensive at $40 HKD/pound.
