CARE Immune Boosting Snack

CARE Recipe: Immune & Thyroid Booster – Kiwi Fruit with Brazil Nuts

I love this snack as an example of food first (vs. supplements). This snack supports your immune system, natural detoxification, and thyroid by providing 100% of your daily needs for both vitamin C (kiwi) and selenium (Brazil nuts). It also provides fiber and just the right combination of healthy carbohydrate (kiwi) and healthy fat (Brazil nut) to help control your blood sugar in-between meals. This is how easy, and tasty, it is to eat with purpose.

  • Yield: 1

Ingredients

  • 1 kiwi fruit (2″ dia)
  • 2 Brazil nuts

Instructions

  1. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Kiwi can be eaten like an apple, peel and all!  Makes them much more portable and retains more of the fiber – I do recommend buying organic if eating the peel (not necessary though with proper washing). Otherwise, slice in half and scoop out flesh.
  • More is not better with selenium! The selenium in Brazil nuts is more bioavailable then supplements. It is not recommended to exceed two kernels per day unless otherwise directed. These two can be therapeutic, more can be too much.
