Kiwi Fruit

Kiwi’s are a well known fruit that are rich in nutrients, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and fiber.  The taste is a cross between a banana, strawberry, and melons.  It is very high in Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and Vitamin E.  It also contains a good amount of potassium and lots of fiber!!  One Kiwi fruit has 45 calories, 0.3 grams of fat, 1 gram of protein, and almost 3 grams of fiber.  The little black seeds are edible, they contain Alpha Linoleic Acid which is an Omega 3 fat (super good for you).  The skin is also edible and adds to the fiber, but my suggestion if you want to eat it would be to throw it into a smoothie.  ***Kiwi’s can cause an allergic reaction in some people because of a protein called Actinidin.
