In the thick of winter, one thing you can always rely on is fruit! Winter is known for its citrus fruits, grapes, kiwis, pears, pomegranates, and more! No matter what, you can count on ThirdLeaf NW to bring you the best of the best.
Grapes are the official fruit of February, and that is a reason to celebrate! Grapes are tiny but mighty, packed with antioxidants like polyphenols which can regulate blood pressure in the body. With no saturated fat or cholesterol, grapes are super heart healthy too. Whether you prefer red, green, or black grapes, each color provides rich health benefits.
Another small fruit that offers lots of nutritional value is the kiwi! Not only do kiwis provide vitamin C, vitamin K, and copper, but they are also known to aid digestion and weight management. Kiwis hold best when refrigerated, though if the texture is not for you, throw one in a smoothie for a quick fix. The extra fiber will be well worth it!
And, of course, one of our favorites, citrus fruits are at their best throughout February. Tangerines, oranges, grapefruit, tangelos, you name it, we got it! We could all use some extra vitamin C and vitamin D in the winter, so stock up on these delicious citrus’ while they are at their best!
If you’re looking for a quick snack break during your busy day, fruit is a great choice to refuel and nourish your body. It may also give you happy memories of warmer times – one can dream!
