Since March is Nutrition Month and I am in Florida, it seemed fitting that this week’s weekly feature cover Florida’s most popular fruit, the orange.
Oranges are healthy. They contain vitamin C, which helps protect our bodies from disease and helps our bodies grow and circulate blood properly. They also contain fiber which can help with digestion. Eating just one orange provides enough vitamin C for a full day. To maximize your health benefits, eat the orange on an empty stomach about 20 minutes before a meal.
For more information about oranges look at some of these websites:
