For the past 10 days my kids and I have taken part in a 10 day challenge ~ Live Well Go Orange. It wasn’t a hard task to do all – eat 10 oranges over 10 days. I love the taste of oranges so I didn’t have to convince myself much it was worth doing; the amount of health benefits and delicious taste did that all on their own.
Everyone knows oranges are a great source of Vitamin C but they are also full of valuable antioxidants. They are great for heart health and if that wasn’t enough they keep the aging process in check! Why wouldn’t you want to go orange?
There are many health benefits to be gained by eating oranges – for my family and I it is important that we boost our immune system and the antioxidants in oranges assist us to do so. Oranges are low GI and fibre which means they will help keep you satisfied for longer and ward off hunger pangs.
After taking the 10 day challenge I must say that I don’t look or feel any different on the outside but I know the benefits that my body has gained by having an orange a day and it is well worth it (especially with how cheap they are in the shops now!)
