Kiwi is an excellent source of Vitamin C, fiber, potassium and antioxidants. It also contains magnesium, folate, zinc and Vitamin E. One serving of kiwifruit (two medium fruits) contains more potassium than a banana, the Vitamin C of two oranges, and the amount of fiber in a bowl of bran cereal. Mushrooms are in season year-round and are a good source of Vitamin B, selenium, copper, niacin, potassium and phosphorous. They also provide protein, Vitamin C and iron.
Produce Tip: Choose kiwis with firm, unblemished skin. Ripe kiwis will give slightly to gently pressure. Choose mushrooms that are firm with a fresh, smooth appearance. Stems should be firm with a uniform color. Avoid mushrooms with “bruises” or ones that are shriveling or feel slimy.
