Fueled by Citrus
Fresg citrus is packed with vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that can strengthen your body's natural defenses. In addition to vitamin C, citrus fruits are rich in nutrients like flavonoids and fiber. These nutrients help provide vascular protection, reduce inflammation, and improve gastrointestinal function and health, all of which ultimately play an important role in preventing conditions like diabetes, cancer, and neurological disease.
Citrus fruits lend themselves well to a plethora of culinary uses. Texas citrus can be eaten as-in, juiced, or zested to enhance flavor and acidity in the dishes.
Citrus juice and zest can be used to add zing to dressings, marinades, and sauces. Add a twist (of the peel) and juice to cocktails and other beverages to create unique flavor combinations. While fresh citrus is subject to seasonality, bottled orange and grapefruit juices are the perfect way to get those same fresh flavors year-round.
Fresh citrus is perfect for adding a pop of unexpected flavor to fresh salads, salsas, and more. It makes the perfect pairing for fish, chicken, and pork, as well as a variety of other fruits and vegetables. Add a pinch of salt to enhance flavor, or pair with herbs and spices like nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, fresh mint, or rosemary.
