Kiwi is a super food; it is packed with vitamins A, C & E and contains more fiber than apples. Kiwis are also rich in potassium, which helps to prevent high blood pressure. This super food also helps flush out toxins from your body, improving overall health and well-being. Kiwi’s black seeds are also very rich in Alfa-Linoleic Acid (an important Omega-3 essential fatty acid) and this makes it a very good detox agent.
Oranges are full of Vitamin C, a single orange can meet your daily requirement of Vitamin C. This vital fruit improves your immunity, protects your body from free radical damages, prevents heart disease and improves digestion.
Low fat yogurt is not only low in calories but it also provides many health benefits. Yogurt is a rich source of calcium, which is important for bones and teeth. As we grow older we need to cut on the calories and increase calcium intake to improve bones’ health.
