What a beautiful day we’ve had here in Blighty…..heaven
Today has been spent sitting in the garden and walking in Hawthorn Dene with the pup. Hawthorn Dene is beautiful and it is starting come alive
Anyway…..today is SUPERFOOD SUNDAY! And today it’s all about the KIWI FRUIT!
Kiwi fruits contain about as much potassium as bananas, and also contain 1.5 times the DRI for Vitamin C. It is also rich in Vitamins A and E, and its black seeds can be crushed to produce kiwi fruit oil, which is very rich in Alfa-Linoleic Acid (an important Omega-3 essential fatty acid)
Studies have proven that kiwifruits are useful in improving conditions of asthmatic children, and in decreasing the probability of colon cancer by providing a good amount of dietary fiber (source)
My sister is an Optician and she also says that kiwis are stellar for reducing degenerative eye diseases….man can this fruit get any better?! I think not!
Now some might say that today’s kiwi recipe is kinda boring…..but I was more interested in the garden than the kitchen today We gotta make the most of this beautiful weather because it is so rare! Anyway….my KIWI COLADA smoothie was a welcome treat in the afternoon sun
- 3 pineapple rings
- 1 small frozen banana
- 3 chopped kiwis
- 5 raspberries
- 6 large ice cubes (or more if you’d like)
I hope you all had a fun in the sun day too…..Monday tomorrow……time really does fly
