    I grew up in a town that is known to be " the city of oranges" , if your oranges or orange juice says  from Brasil it probably came from my hometown. So, with that said I LOVE ORANGES. 

 Most of our dessert after lunch and dinner are oranges, now I am passing the tradition to my son, and so far he share the same love for them .

 Here some fun facts about oranges

  -They are a tropical to semitropical fruit  
  -Low in calories
  -No saturated fats or cholesterol 
  -Rich in dietary fiber
  -Excellent source of vitamin C ( a powerful antioxidant )
  -Contain some vitamin A and vitamin B
  -Good amount of minerals (potassium and calcium)
  -Easy to eat
  -Can storage at room temperature for around 1 week and the refrigerator for around 2 weeks.
  -There are many many types of oranges varying  from very sweet to bitter

 I personally think they are a very good gift (love when I get them at Christmas time) so how about as a  Valentines Day present ??? I am sure there are going to be plenty chocolate so let's go to the healthy side ...  how about ORANGES?
