Papain in the papaya is the perfect digestive aid! The protein-splitting enzyme supports intestinal activity and purifies and boosts the metabolism. Extra vitamin C from the papaya promotes fitness and ensures firm connective tissue.

This carpaccio can be topped with some low-fat cream cheese. This will add a portion of protein that is very filling!
