Citrus is in season, and a wonderful way to add fruit to your day. Citrus fruits such as; oranges, grapefruit, mandarines and tangerines, are excellent sources of immune-boosting vitamin C; which is why you should be reaching for these fruits this cold and flu season.
Citrus fruits also contain fiber, which keeps us full and helps decreases hunger, and increase weight-loss.
Citrus foods also have a relatively low glycemic-index. Which means it won't spike your blood sugar, rather it releases slowly in your blood stream, offering steady energy rather than a sugar spike and crash later.
With a wide array of health benefits, citrus fruit is a must this sick season, AND on sale at both our local grocery stores this week! Give this "citrusy" recipe a try at your next family mealtime.
