Flu Season Calls for Yummy Protective Measures


It's THAT time of year again, and outside of the Cov-19 pandemic, we re still being actively hoping to protect ourselves from the flu. While there are many preventative measures, let's be real here, they are not always appetizing or delicious in taste; and while that absolutely doesn't make them any less effective, it can get in the way of us actually connecting with our healing in an enthusiastic way. What I will say is that Chef Nina is a well of knowledge and is well versed in concocting sensational eats that serve a healing purpose. Now felt like a great time to share with you all this delicious treat that does wonders for our immune system and taste buds:

Kiwifruit Delites!


Kiwifruit is rich in vitamins and nutrients. Dehydrated kiwi fruit can increase the nutritional value of the fruit from its usual amount. It can also serve as a delicious treat . Just like potato chips, dehydrated kiwis make a perfect grab and go snack. They are perfectly portable, and you can enjoy them anytime and anywhere. Dehydrated kiwi is effortless to make and will be gobbled up fast!


Dried kiwis are provide a chewy, tangy taste just like the natural kiwis. If you want to taste the tart in the kiwis, spritz with lemon juice. Dried kiwis provide a special treat between meals or a mid-afternoon snack

Dehydrated kiwi fruit retains some healthful vitality as fresh kiwi fruit. While dehydration reduces water content, the dried kiwis consume more than 3.5 times the minerals, fiber, and folate. The kiwi fruit does lose a bit of Vitamin C during dehydration, but it is a healthy and crunchy snack to keep on hand.


Dehydrating Kiwi fruit using a Dehydrator

Ingredients

  • 6 Kiwi Fruits

  • Lemon Juice (optional if you’d like a sweet tart flavor)

  • ¾ cup of dried shredded coconut (optional)

1. Slice the kiwi fruit in ¼ inches slice discs.

2. Spritz the kiwi slices with lemon juice. (optional)

3. Place the kiwi slices in a medium size bowl and sprinkle with coconut shreds. (optional).

4. Arrange the sliced kiwis on a dehydrator tray.

5. Dehydrate at 118 degrees for 24 hours or to the crispness you prefer.




I'd like to go on record to say that these tasty snacks are like eating your favorite gummy candies, but better. I'm guessing that's why fruit is referred to as "nature's candy." Stay healthy an sickness at bay by eating foods to live for!
