Zespri Gold Kiwi

Alhamdulillah rezeki...
We were given these delicious Gold Kiwis and plenty of them! Like 7 packs of them (4 in each pack!)

The gold ones are much sweeter than the green ones and they are soo yums! I can't get enough of them. Just did a quick google and oh my, so many reasons to eat them! But this pic sums it up really. 2 kiwis are equivalent to 1 banana + a bowl of cereal + 2 oranges!

Unfortunately they ain't cheap, but will keep on buying occasionally now that I know how good they are!

Check out these reason why you should go kiwi (taken from here)

  1. Vitamin C - One serving of kiwifruit has 240% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C! This flu-fighter also wards off the effects of aging and stress, and powers up the immune system.
  2. Fiber – Rough makes you smooth – two kiwifruit contain more fiber than a bowl of bran cereal. Fiber promotes
    a healthy heart, regular digestion, and helps lower cholesterol levels.
  3. Potassium – A serving of kiwifruit has more potassium than a banana. A great fit for active lifestyles, potassium
    maintains fluid and electrolyte balance and releases energy during exercise.
  4. Low Glycemic Index – Kiwifruit is an excellent addition to any weight-conscious diet as well as being diabetes friendly. With a low glycemic index (52), this low-fat, low-carb fruit makes a satisfying snack.
  5. Antioxidant – Kiwifruit is an antioxidant all-star! Antioxidants attack free radicals and harmful by-products in your body, reducing your risk of cancer, heart disease and stroke.
  6. Folate – Kiwifruit contains close to 10% of the recommended daily value of folate, vital for the health of mother and child during pregnancy, and for the prevention of birth defects.
  7. Magnesium – Two kiwifruit have a healthy 30 mg of magnesium, which powers up energy levels and improves nerve and muscle function.
  8. Lutein – This phytochemical found in kiwifruit helps to prevent age-related blindness and protect eyes against environmental stress and high-energy light.
  9. Zinc – Important for boys and men because it helps produce testosterone. Everyone else needs the zinc in kiwifruit for healthy hair, skin, teeth and nails.
  10. Vitamin E - Kiwifruit is one of the few low-fat sources of this potent cleanser and antioxidant. It also helps to lower cholesterol and boost the immune system.
