Kiwi Kachoomer

10 Days of 14days almost done and dusted, and for 9 of the 10days I have created a healthy dish –“Yippee For Me”. I am totally sold on all of the goodness that these furry brown little fruit possess. To me when they are cut into two they look like “ the earth in the middle with the green environment around it” now this is what we all dream of – earth surrounded by a green and better enviroment, and hopefully if each one of us takes a few measures to go greener—Kiwi greener we can make earth a better place for us and the future generations.

Simple changes in our diets can edge us closer to a greener earth—2 Zespri Kiwi Fruit a Day is a great start – 1 and half fruit to eat as you choose, half a fruit with a bit of butter milk as your shower scrub and then toss the peels into your garden and you have spread the goodness of Kiwi in 3 directions-all 3 pointing to a greener future with the Zespri Green Kiwi Fruit.
