An Immune Booster // Fresh Orange Chicken

Oranges have a reputation for being healthy and delicious. It is a reputation that is well-deserved! Just one orange provides you with all the vitamin C you need for the day. They satisfy a sweet tooth in a healthy way and boost your immune system. Your body doesn’t make vitamin C so it is important to get it from the foods you eat.

There are plenty of ways to enjoy oranges. Don’t let yourself get bored with just one. If you like recipes with an Asian flair, try this Orange Chicken recipe.

The recipe calls for fresh orange juice and orange zest, which really takes the flavor up a notch.
