Kiwis are popular fruits that can be used in salads or mixed in fruit salsas. They are a bright green fruit that offers a sweet, yet tart taste and very little calories. There are 45-50 calories in one standard sized kiwi fruit. That is not many calories, considering the sweet taste.
Kiwis are typically prepared fresh and sliced. One small slice of kiwi offers about 8-10 calories. Eating an entire kiwi won’t hurt the diet, if you are on a weight loss plan, because they are so low in calories. Kiwis contain no fat and are a great source of vitamin C and vitamin A. They contain antioxidants that help eliminate free radicals from the system, detoxifying things as needed. Kiwis are great for thwarting off the common cold because of their antioxidant properties.
Most people peel their kiwis, although not many calories would be added if the peel was eaten. The peel is fuzzy and tough, therefore it is typically removed before eating the fruit.
Kiwis are a great breakfast food because of the low number of calories offered in the entire fruit. The kiwi can be sliced and eaten whole. Combined with whole grain toast or topped on oatmeal, kiwi offers a great meal that is low in fat and calories. Kiwis are wholesome, nutritious and won’t pack on the extra pounds.
