Hello again! There’s no better time of the year to be taking lots of Vitamin C than right now!
The cold weather has arrived in the Northern Hemisphere along with cold and flus – oh no!! Who wants to spend a week in bed with a runny nose and aches and pains all over? Not me! ????
This simple recipe will help you to take a good dose of Vitamin C! Plus, it offers lots of other benefits that Mother Nature brings to us in her greenest packaging- the fruits themselves! And of course, eating seasonal fruits is even better, since that’s when all of their health properties are at peak potential![/et_pb_text][et_pb_image src=”https://fruitwall.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/Granada-con-zumo-de-naranja3.jpg” _builder_version=”3.0.75″][/et_pb_image][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.0.75″]
You can grab the vegetables off of our original FRUITWALL fruit bowl What do you think of how we’ve decorated it for our recipe?
I want to learn more about FRUITWALL
As you can see in the photo above of our FRUITWALL fruit “bowl,” this recipe only uses two ingredients.
- 4 pomegranates
- 8 oranges
As I was saying, it’s best to eat them while they’re in season, from November to May. They have lots of beneficial properties: they are antioxidants, cleansers, disinfectants, and stimulate the immune system. They have high Vitamin C content, which helps our immune system to fight off colds and flus. But an orange has even more benefits! They are rich in Vitamins A, B, and E and minerals like calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium that also help to keep our immune system strong.[/et_pb_text][et_pb_image src=”https://fruitwall.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/DSC_3635.jpg” _builder_version=”3.0.75″][/et_pb_image][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.0.75″]
Pomegranates are in season throughout autumn. They contain Vitamins C and E and minerals like potassium. Like I mentioned, Vitamin C is great for keeping up our defenses during this time of year!
Plus, they are a low-calorie food, which we think is pretty good news.
The recipe is very simple. Peel the pomegranates, place the seeds in a bowl, and pour orange juice over them. Easy, right? It can be a simple and fantastic dessert or breakfast, that adults and children alike will love.
If you don’t like dealing with all the little bits, you can put the pomegranate seeds in a blender and then strain the liquid after for an even smoother final result. When I eat fruit, I like to avoid throwing away any parts, so I’ll even add what’s left in the juicer back into the juice, which by the way is a great source of fiber!
And I don’t want to say goodbye without a quick reminder that we should all try our best to eat 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day to maintain a healthy diet!
Enjoy your meal![/et_pb_text][et_pb_image src=”https://fruitwall.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/DSC_3637.jpg” _builder_version=”3.0.75″][/et_pb_image][et_pb_image src=”https://fruitwall.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/DSC_3663.jpg” _builder_version=”3.0.75″][/et_pb_image][et_pb_image _builder_version=”3.0.75″][/et_pb_image][et_pb_blog fullwidth=”off” posts_number=”3″ show_author=”off” show_date=”off” show_categories=”off” offset_number=”0″ _builder_version=”3.0.75″ header_font_size=”16px” body_font_size=”12px” meta_font_size=”15px” text_orientation=”center”][/et_pb_blog][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section][et_pb_section fb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”3.0.75″][et_pb_row _builder_version=”3.0.75″][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”3.0.47″ parallax=”off” parallax_method=”on”][et_pb_post_nav _builder_version=”3.0.75″][/et_pb_post_nav][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
