Look at the size of these oranges and mushrooms!
Back at Farmer Joe’s today picking juicy oranges and foraging for wild mushrooms!
Mushrooms contain several B vitamins, vitamin C, iron, potassium, copper, and selenium, and they are also a good source of protein, fiber and antioxidants.
Vitamin C is an essential antioxidant that helps protect cells from free radicals that cause cellular damage in the body. It supports a healthy immune system and is needed for the growth and development of body tissues and wound healing.
Vitamin C also helps our body to absorb iron, and it’s good for our skin too because it stimulates the production of collagen. Vitamin C also helps neutralize the free radicals that damage skin cells and cause oxidative stress to the skin, which can lead to premature skin aging.
Oranges are rich in vitamin C, but there are also many other fruits and vegetables that also contain vitamin C.
Fruits that are rich in vitamin C include:
Clementines, grapefruits, kiwis, strawberries, pineapples, mangoes, and lemons and limes.
Vegetables that are rich in vitamin C include:
Kale, broccoli, spinach, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, red, yellow, orange and green peppers.
