***The ORANGE lover COUNTRY***

Hello lovelies, 



It was a bright and sunny day so I decided to wear something comfy and simple.
I’m also in the mood for oranges, I wore a carrot orange baby t-shirt and a Storm orange slipper and paired it with my brown hat.

On the other hand, aside from the mood to wear orange I'm also in the mood to eat and tackle  the benefits of eating the citrus fruit.
One of my favorite fruit and one of the most popular  choices for many people is the orange. Because they are widely available and typically are one of the more cost-effective fruits to purchase and they are loaded with great nutrition.
Not only are oranges a low calorie option for a snack for the dieter, but with their sweet taste, they make for the perfect substitute for those cravings when they strike.
Let’s take a quick look at the nutritional information in the orange so you know precisely what you’re getting when you choose to have this juicy fruit.





Major Nutrients Found In An Orange

Oranges are most well known for their vitamin C content, as many people will begin loading up at the first sign of a cold.
That’s not all their good for however. Oranges are also a rich source of dietary fiber, folate, vitamin B1, potassium, vitamin A, and have a small amount of calcium as well.
If you’re a vegetarian who doesn’t consume any dairy products, this added calcium will be a huge benefit for you.

Storing/Selecting

When selecting your oranges, you want to look for ones that are very full in shape and firm to touch. Avoid purchasing any oranges that show signs of discoloration or wrinkles.
Store in a cool dark place or in the bottom of the fridge for maximum freshness.

Eat It With:

Oranges are great served alone as a quick snack on the go or can be added to fruit salad or many different dessert dishes.
