Fit Food: The Benefits of Citrus

If you’re looking to lose your belly for summer or simply up your antioxidant intake, it doesn’t get much better than this fiber- and Vitamin C-rich family of fruits. Learn how to work them into any meal.
To add flavor and fiber to a vegetable-heavy salad, toss in some mandarin oranges or diced grapefruit slices. You can do it with any basic recipe, but one killer combination we love is an Asian-style medley of spinach, grilled chicken or shrimp, tomatoes, chopped snow peas, and mandarin oranges. Sprinkle a few peanuts on top for some extra crunch, then drizzle with a dressing made of oil, vinegar, and soy sauce. Bam. You’ve got a light lunch that feels like a real meal.
