Eating five servings of fruits and vegetables a day is one of the main recommendations for being healthy. Among the foods that you can incorporate into your diet, the kiwi is undoubtedly one of the best options, for its health benefits, and also for its taste. It is also very easy to eat. Come, I invite you to discover more about this fruit.
A fruit rich in nutrients
The kiwi is a very interesting source of nutrients for a healthy diet. Among all the ingredients you have, I will mention the three that seem to me the most remarkable:
The vitamin C
There are different varieties of kiwi, and with some good varities you will have 161 mg of vitamin C per 100 grams of fruit. Three times more than what you would find in 100 grams of orange, for example.
The kiwi contributes part of the necessary fiber in a healthy diet. For example, some varieties gives you 3 grams of fiber per 100. If you want a reminder of the benefits of eating fiber, I recommend that you reread the post that I wrote in your time on this subject.
Did you know that the kiwi contains almost as much potassium as the banana (per 100 grams)? If you are an athlete, you are interested in taking potassium, because it helps muscle recovery and proper functioning of the muscles.
It is very easy to eat
The truth is that the kiwi is one of the simplest fruits to eat. You can keep one in your backpack, next to a spoon and a knife, and you can easily eat it at any time of the day. In addition, unlike other fruits, such as banana or orange, the kiwi skin is quite thin, so that its content is used better.
If you do not want to eat it with a spoon (how delicious!), You can always add it to a fruit salad, put it with your cereals, eat it in slices after having peeled it. The only limit is your imagination.
Take care of your lifestyle too
Eating well is essential for a healthy life, and incorporating kiwi into your diet is a good idea. But it is not the only thing you have to do to be more fit and increase your vitality. And you know what I mean. You have to avoid sedentary attitudes and move. Doing a physical activity of moderate intensity for thirty minutes five times a week is an excellent way to increase and maintain your vitality. And when you finish, you can always give yourself the pleasure of enjoying a good kiwi.
What are you waiting for to take care of yourself? Take control! With a little more care with your diet and a little physical activity, you can achieve great things.
