Oranges are in season this month!!
The juicy crop is full of scrumptious vitamins and minerals. Oranges are loaded with fiber, low in calories and of course, laden with Vitamin C; Vitamin C promotes resistance to infection, maintains proper lung function and is good for your eyes! A smart snacker tip on getting ample amount of Vitamin C from your vitamin packed produce: refrigerate or quick freeze to help retain the vitamin (I like to store my oranges in the refrigerator).
A 1 cup serving of a fresh orange = approx. 124 mg of Vitamin C!
The Dietary Reference Intake (DRI): 15-120 mg/day, depending on age and gender.
