5 Ways To Get Your Vitamin C This Winter (Without Oranges)

Post image for 5 Ways To Get Your Vitamin C This Winter (Without Oranges)

UPDATE: This post originally ran on January 9th but with all the snow we’ve gotten on the East Coast lately, we felt like we could use a nice boost of vitamin C to stay healthy!

It’s that time of year. Sickness time. The weather is cold, germs are a-plenty, and our immune systems are working overtime to keep us at our healthiest. You’re likely already aware of vitamin C’s effect on the immune system — it does wonders for it — so making sure that we get ample amounts of this into our system is a definite must. When I hear vitamin C, the first thing that comes to mind

Oranges on wood

Oranges. They’re full of it. In fact, 1 medium-sized orange has over 100% of your average daily value of vitamin C. But today I want to let you in on a little secret… there are plenty other fruits and vegetables that contain just as much – or MORE – vitamin C. Personally, I love oranges. I love the smell, the taste, and the mess I make while eating them… but sometimes it’s fun to mix it up. So, if you’re looking for a new way to get this incredible vitamin into your system, here are 5 non-orange ways to do it!

Brussels sprouts on window sill

1. Brussels sprouts

One cup of these little nuggets is all you need, with 124% of your average daily value of vitamin C. Try sauteing some with a little garlic and olive oil. Mmm.

Kiwi, cactus

2. Kiwi

I’d have never thought that kiwi could be a good source of vitamin C. At just two inches in diameter, one kiwi supplies you with more than your daily allotment, at 102%! Should you find yourself somewhere vacationing somewhere warm, throw a kiwi or two into some frozen fruit pops to keep your immune system pumping before returning to the cold.

Yellow bell pepper, fork

3. Bell peppers

Depending on the color, a bell pepper can offer you anywhere between 150% and 570% of your daily value — crazy! Yellow has the highest vitamin C content, and while green has the lowest in relation, we’re still talking an immense amount

Kale and something else

4. Kale

One cup of chopped kale has 134% of your daily value of vitamin C, with almost an identical amount of vitamin A! We love love love kale around here, and recommend trying any (or all) of these: spicy kale chips, detox smoothie, kitchari, spaghetti squash and kale gratin.

Yellow pepper, kiwi, brussels sprouts, kale

5. Mix and match

Make yourself an immune-system-boosting meal by combining any of these into a delicious salad or smoothie! And in case you’re looking for some more ingredients to add, here’s a quick list of some more foods high in vitamin C!

Jalapeños have more vitamin C than an orange! I read this little tidbit on a chalk board in Bad Boy Burrito in Key West.
