Kiwis

http://www.superfoodsrx.com/images/kiwi.jpgIn the super food family, the Kiwi fruit stands out as not only an excellent source of Vitamin C (1 kiwi gives you all the Vitamin C you need for the day) but many other vitamins and nutrients your body needs.

The Kiwi fruit, while small and a little tough to get into, is one of the only fruits to provide Vitamin E.  Vitamin E is normally found in nuts and oils, which are high in calories, while the Kiwi provides Vitamin E with a 46 to 56 point caloric intake per fruit.  Kiwi are also full of fiber, potassium and anti-oxidants.  There is a lot packed into that little package!  Another fun fact about Kiwi fruit is that they have been named after two birds, the Chinese Gooseberry and the New Zealand Kiwi bird.

Kiwi fruit are sweet, versatile and delicious.  They can be used in savory recipes as well as desserts so be sure to enjoy them every chance you get!

About Felicia

Hello, I am Felicia and I am one of the founding members of Health Now, Wealth Forever. When we came up with the concept of starting our family business, I was enthusiastic just to spend time working on a project with my family. But, as we have grown and expanded, my passion for educating myself and others - about alternative health options and changing the way we view finances and life - has taken over. While I admit I am not the healthiest of our group, I am working on it daily and hope that the articles I write help you to work on it with me. Thank you for supporting us and allowing us to open our minds and yours to an alternative way of look at health, wealth and life!
