We take a closer look at our faves...
This delicious citrus is at its prime in the winter months, meaning fantastic fresh orange juice, frozen orange quarters and orange and poppyseed cake. It's renowned for being jam-packed with vitamin C, but did you also know it's bursting with fibre and antioxidants?
These little guys are at their cheapest during the winter months thanks to the increase in supply. They're also full of vitamin C and vitamin E, making them a great fruit to throw in the lunchbox with a plastic knife/spoon combination or to incorporate into a fresh salad for dinner. Choose a kiwifruit that's plump and oval in shape. To ripen, store at room temperature or in the fridge away from other fruits. You can tell when a kiwifruit is ripe because it's just tender when squeezed.
An apple a day certainly does keep the doctor away! Apples are not only bursting with antioxidants, but also many other nutrients and they help you to feel full for longer. Thanks to their handy shape, size and protective peel, they're the perfect fruit to throw in your handbag or eat on the run. Enjoy an apple by itself or slice it up for use in a crunchy salad or on a sandwich with peanut butter. (Weird, but wonderful!) If you're in the baking mood, follow this delicious recipe adapted from apple info powerhouse Aussie Apples.
