1. Oranges

Oranges

No list of orange fruits and vegetables would be complete without these citrus wonders.

Oranges are a great source of vitamin C, which protects your immunity and keeps you from getting sick.

Oranges are also a great source of fiber, which fills your tummy with very few calories and no fat.

An orange is great for breakfast and lunch, but they also taste great in fruit salad and smoothies.

2. Sweet Potatoes

Sweet Potatoes

These delicious treats aren’t just for Thanksgiving.

Full of beta-carotene, sweet potatoes are beneficial for many aspects of your health.

At the same time, they have lots of potassium, which is important for regulating your blood pressure.

Sweet potatoes also have fiber and vitamins A and C.

Bake a sweet potato for dinner and top it with a bit of butter and a sprinkling of cinnamon.

Or cube a sweet potato and roast it with a bit of canola oil and salt and pepper and serve it as a side dish.

3. Cantaloupe

Cantaloupe

Cantaloupe is probably my favorite fruit.2

It’s available year round, but nothing beats a fresh, juicy slice of cantaloupe in the summer.

A serving of this orange melon contains potassium and more than 100 percent of the daily recommended intake of vitamins A and C.

Add cantaloupe to fruit salad or just enjoy a cup of it for a snack.

4. Carrots

Carrots

Carrots are inexpensive and work in so many recipes.

I use raw carrots in wraps and salads and I toss them into stir-fry, vegetable soup, fried rice and meatloaf too.

Carrot sticks with hummus or ranch dressing is a tasty and healthy snack.

Carrots are loaded with fiber, potassium and vitamin A, but contain no fat and very few calories.
