14 day Kiwi-challenge results!

As you know I joined the 14 day kiwi challenge from Zespri kiwi weeks ago! I was asked to eat 2 kiwi's a day for 14 consecutive days because research had shown that this improves peoples mood and energy levels (more info in my previous blog post).

And I must say, I really felt more energized during these two weeks! I didn't expect this, but it was indeed the case. I was coming down with a cold the days before I started the challenge. I always have this during this time of the year and it usually lasts for a minimum of 2 weeks with sore throat, lungs and everything. But this time it only was some sniveling and about 3 days into my challenge it was gone! I think this can best be explained by the high amount of Vitamin C in the kiwi's. But perfect for me, I was so happy!



I am definitely keeping kiwi's part of my weekly diet. But not 2 each day. I like some variation in my food and although kiwis are delicious, especially the sungold kiwis, I was getting a little bit tired eating 2 kiwis every day, day in day out. But when I'm starting to feel sick I will eat 2 a day!

Well how did I like to eat my kiwi's? Most of the time I just had them as a snack in the morning or afternoon at work. But I also discovered an amazing Kiwi salad! And as you might know, I love having healthy pancakes for Sunday brunch and topped them with kiwi which was just perfect! I also made my green smoothie bowl or topped my yoghurt or quark for breakfast with it.

 So I challenge you to do the 14-day kiwi challenge! Do you also feel more energized? Let's chat in the comments below!
