Waking up to single digit temperatures has been so unpleasant! The multiple layers required to stay warm is uncomfortable and is still not effective to combat this frigid weather. In addition, the risk of getting the common cold and influenza is increased because some of the viruses leading to these illnesses are seasonal, occurring more frequently during cold weather.  I guess Punxsutawney Phil was right!

No one leaves my house without taking Vitamin C but the best source comes from fresh fruit and vegetables.  Here is a list of fruits and vegetables with the highest amount of Vitamin C, per cup.  Incorporate more of this powerful antioxidant in your lifestyle.

  • Yellow Bell Peppers
  • Guavas
  • Kale
  • Kiwi
  • Broccoli
  • Strawberries
  • Oranges
  • Tomatoes
  • Peas
  • Papaya
