It is freezing cold in Kyoto nowadays.
It is the seasone of KOUYOU which means colored leaves!
We can enjoy pretty KOUYOU everywhere in Kyoto.

Today we went to Fushimi inari.
There were not so many KOUYOU going on, but we caught the beautiful sun set.
I wanna go there again when the weather is good.

Today I made Apple Ginger dressing.
So you might want to add some Avocado, nuts or seeds in you salad.

2 Apples
1 size of your thumb of Ginger

Most people throw the papaya seeds away, but even small amounts of them in your diet can be surprisingly good for you.

They taste like mustard or pepper, it means good for your daily dressings.

Also papaya leaves have papain which is a cysteine protease enzyme. It helps your digestion.  But the papain is 10 times more plenty in the green papaya than riped papaya.

Have some papaya seed dressing salad in summer time and get healthy!
