This simple combination is packed with vitamins and fiber. It’ll help your digestive system especially when served alongside a high protein meal. The enzyme called actinidain found in kiwifruit will help break protein down. It also works beautifully on its own as a midday snack. Pairing kiwifruit with fibrous apple instead of a banana, for example, will help you stay fuller longer and it won’t spike your blood sugar levels as much.
Cool fact: Kiwis contain twice the amount of Vitamin C than oranges and lemons.
Tip: To prevent the apple from browning (oxidation process) leave it in salty water (1 teaspoon salt to 2 cups of water) for 10 minutes and rinse it off.
