Kiwi Berries Are The Cutest, Most Gorgeous Fruit Ever....
Kiwi berry is a species within the Actinidia family. It’s a natural berry (not genetically engineered in a lab) and is rich in Vitamin C, high in fiber and a great source of potassium, vitamin E and magnesium.
When eaten unripe, they are a little on the sour “candy” side and a little crunchy/hard. They ripen fast, get soft and darker and get really sweet: kinda like kiwi flavored grapes. To extend their shelf life, keep them refrigerated: they typically last from 5-10 days in the fridge once ripe.
They’re awesome in fruit salads, as a snack on their own and can be added to pretty much any recipe that calls for fruit. I also like them frozen and used as ice cubes in my favorite drinks.
Plus… they’re adorable. You don’t get much cuter than tiny kiwis. :)
Don’t get so caught up in trying to live the “healthiest” and longest life possible that you forget to LIVE.
Staying in good health isn’t an end in and of itself. The PURPOSE of living in a healthier body is the ability to DO more with it. Love more. Play more. Use it for good (or mischief, you little buggers). Getting a fitter body is about more than just HAVING one. You gotta put it to good use.
It’s super easy to fall in love with healthy living: it’s addictive, it’s fun and the benefits are wicked. But if you’re spending more time in the gym than with the people you love or have become so restrictive with your eating that there is no room for spontaneity or JOY, you may want to re-prioritize.
Healthy living = healthier bodies. Healthier bodies = the ability to DO more for longer. Doing more, for longer = the MAIN purpose of healthy living. Don’t forget it.
