3 Ways to Get Your Daily Dose of Vitamin C
Delicious-tasting and divinely scented citrus fruits are probably the most popular sources of vitamin C. This essential nutrient, also known as ascorbic acid, is a powerful antioxidant and a necessary element for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues. See how easy it is to get your Cs.
1. The main squeeze
For fresh-squeezed OJ or lime juice for margaritas, you have your options. A classic hand-squeezer is a no-frills way to get juice from citrus fruits, while a power-assisted citrus press effortlessly extracts juice while filtering out pulp and seeds.
2. Serrated sense
Grapefruits pack a vitamin-C punch, but can be a pain to eat. Try a spoon dedicated to the task with a serrated edge that easily separates segments and a pointed design to get every juicy bit.
3. Not just for breakfast
The tangy OJ in this Orange Chicken meal starter makes it an all-ages favourite. Just stir-fry two pounds of cubed chicken breast, then toss it in this sweet and savoury sauce for an easy dinner in less time than takeout.
