CARA CARA

Tid Bit(e) Tuesday

Cara Cara Oranges. These oranges have a pink flesh and are sweet yet tangy and a little bit tart kinda like a strawberry! They are my favorite oranges but they are only in season for a little while so get some now!!!

  1. LYCOPENE- this is a powerful antioxidant that actually gives the oranges their color. It has been linked to a lower risk of muscular degeneration, prostate cancer and heart disease! (1)
  2. HEART DISEASE- Oranges also contain a flavonoid compound called hesperidin which prevents your arteries from being blocked
  3. VITAMIN C- Vitamin C is a critical component in making collagen. Collagen is what keeps your skin looking healthy and your hair strong
  4. FIBER- Just make sure you aren’t getting your oranges just from juice! That way you will get the fiber!!
