Forget the energy bars, eat a kiwi! Kiwi is an easily digestable fruit that you can have in the middle of your workout to provide a quick energy boost along with building up your body’s defenses.
Kiwi has an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, such as:
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin E
- Not to mention it is loaded with roughly 5grams of fiber (if you eat the skin).
Kiwis are beneficial for their protective qualities by being packed with antioxidants and enzymes. This is especially great becuase when you are working out, your immune system is actually at a low point. This makes you suseptible to colds, upper respitory infections, viruses etc. By consuming a kiwi mid-way into your workout, you will find that 1) it gives you an energy boost 2) it provides your body the nutrients to combat free radical damage to the muscles that occur during exercise.
How can you go wrong? It’s natural, eath provides it for YOU!
