Orange You Glad
It’s Time to Enjoy One of Nature’s Most Nutritious Foods
Like a ray of sunshine in the winterweary produce aisle, oranges not only brighten your grocery cart but might even outshine apples for healthy eating. Despite that familiar “keeps the doctor away” adage, the Overall Nutritional Quality Index (ONQI, see the May 2009 Healthletter) rates oranges every bit as high as apples. Oranges are a tasty source of fiber and vitamin C, and science keeps finding new ways they benefit your body.
