Kiwi

Kiwi is known for being jam-packed with Vitamin C. It also has a good amount of fiber and potassium. Kiwi has a small amount of calories, but a lot of flavor to enjoy. This makes it a great “diet food” to add to your shopping list and rev up your metabolism.

When you are picking out kiwi at the grocery store, you should look for a fruit that yields a little when you lightly squeeze it. This means that the fruit is ripe and sweet. Store your kiwi at room temperature until it is the desired ripeness, and then you can move it to the refrigerator.

You can eat kiwi with the skin on or peel it off. To peel it, first cut of the ends and then you can use a peeler or knife to trim off the skin.

Kiwi is delicious on its own, but here are some other ideas to try.

1. Add kiwi to your basic fruit salad

2. Top your greek yogurt with fresh kiwi

3. Add kiwi to your fruit smoothie

4. Make a fruit pizza with kiwi
