In an attempt to make myself feel better on this seriously miserable day I thought I’d create a fruit salad for my breakfast. Although there isn’t any proven benefits to fruit/vitamin C helping flu, I thought I may as well try and also create a delicious breakfast for myself as I do it…
Banana’s are amazing sources of B6 (a vitamin that most vegans are deprived of), full of fiber which is great for digestion and have lots of potassium in and they also help with fatigue.
Blueberries the superfood– they are great sources of vitamin K and C, fiber and manganese. As well as that they are full of antioxidants which help protect our bodies from disease.
Honeydew Melon is about 90% water which makes it a natural diuretic. It is rich in vitamin B and C and has a high potassium content.
Raspberries are also packed full of vitamin C, antioxidants and fiber. They are 95% water which is one of the highest water contents in fruit.
Nectarines are orangey coloured due to the high content of beta-carotene. This is then changed into vitamin A in the body which is used to maintain healthy skin, teeth, bone tissue, soft tissue and mucus membranes.
