Today's Nutritional Facts!!

I love fruit because it's the best of both worlds. Healthy and it tastes great!

Recently I was eating some Kiwi, which is one of my faves, and I found out that it's a super food! 1 serving of Kiwi (2 kiwis) has more potassium than a banana, more vitamin C than 2 oranges, and more fiber than a bowl of bran cereal!! Isn't that great!!!! Maybe I'm just excited because I love the fruit so much! I get mine in bulk from Sam's Club, however, I purchase organic whenever I can from Earthfare.



One other fruit you should keep an eye on is the pomegranate. They are full of antioxidants and other nutrients to boost your immune system!! There is a rumor that the phrase "an apple a day keeps the doctor away" was originally about pomegranates... not apples. Blueberries are also high in antioxidants. I personally think blackberries are the best tasting berry.



Yum!!

Eat right, and be well!
