Top 7 Healthiest Orange Fruits and Vegetables

 
Fruits and vegetables are an important staple in any diet. While a diet containing a variety of fruits and vegetables is best, orange is one of the healthiest colors you can look for.
 
Orange vegetables contain beta-carotene, a form of Vitamin A, which is great for eyesight and eliminating free radicals. The beta-carotene gives the vegetable its orange color.
 
Some of the healthiest orange fruits and vegetables are sweet potatoes, squash, pumpkin, carrots, mangos, oranges and papaya. These fruits and vegetables are great sources of nutrients and usually have a sweet flavor, making them ideal for satisfying those cravings for sweets.
 
Let’s look at why these top 7 orange fruits and vegetables are so incredibly healthy:
 
Sweet Potatoes are one of the best orange foods. Part of the root family, they have huge amounts of beta-carotene, manganese, copper, fiber, B6, potassium, iron and just about anything else you think you could possibly pack into a small potato-like case.
 
Here are some interesting facts you might not know about sweet potatoes:
  • Sweet potatoes are known to help stomach ulcers and inflamed conditions of the colon. 
  • Sweet potatoes appear to play a part in preventing cancer in certain organs and glands due to its high Vitamin A content.
     
  • Due to the high content of Vitamins A and C, sweet potatoes help remove free radicals which damage cells.
     
  • Sweet potatoes are great for people with diabetes because they help stabilize blood sugar levels.
Squash & Pumpkin. These two foods are closely related, and actually come from the same family of vegetables, known as squash. They’re loaded with fiber as well as beta-carotene.
  • The squash family of vegetables is great at fighting off cancer, especially lung cancer, reducing the risk of heart disease and aiding in fighting against type-2 diabetes.
     
  • Pumpkins specifically are great for urinary tract support and aid in the function of the kidneys.Years ago, pumpkin seed oil was even used to treat burns and wounds.
Carrots, a great food for eyesight, are the richest vegetable source for beta-carotene. Carrots reduce cholesterol and the risk of heart disease, help prevent macular degeneration, and help control insulin levels to those with diabetes.

  • While cooking foods typically removes some of their nutrients, this isn’t so with carrots. Lightly cooking them actually helps to release the carotenes, which are otherwise trapped.
Some of your favorite fruits are also some of the healthiest out there:
 
Mangos are high in iron and help fight against anemia and reduce kidney problems, fever, and respiratory problems. They can even relieve clogged pores of the skin.
 
Oranges, the typical orange fruit, is not so typical when you take a closer look.
  • Because of the vitamins and antioxidants in an orange, they’ve been proven to help with asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, prevention of kidney stones, high blood pressure, arthritis and diabetes.
  • Oranges eaten in larger amounts can even decrease a runny nose.
Papaya contains digestive enzymes, which help break down some of the more difficult foods in our stomach, such as beans, dairy, and even meat. Due to the high fiber content, papaya also helps with constipation and even upset stomach.
  • The one thing papaya has been known for around the world is its ability to prevent nausea, including morning and motion sickness if taken in the juice form.
Orange fruits and vegetables are a great way to battle off illness and disease. Combine them with a few servings of dark green vegetables and you have yourself a winning combination.

I cried to God for years and asked him to free me from the slavery of using force in my working environment and everything that is financial related. Of course I didn’t use the exact words then, but I experienced the slavery of working day and night and to still bring in only a small and very limited amount of money each month. I know what that Read more...

What changes I experienced over the past 49 days.   When I started the challenge I had a daily task of opening the news first thing when I got to the office.   This made me wonder why I came back to South Africa as I was in the USA for 5 years, as everything that you read was negative. This also tends to make me negative and grumpy.   I changed this and now the first thing I do when I get to the Read more...

Thank you, thank you, thank you for a life changing experience and challenge. My average day has gone from getting up at the last minute and get ready to leave for the office, at the office I would do things if and when they popped up and postponed tasks at on a regular basis and still did not have enough hours in the Read more...

First of, I have a confession to make: I started the Kaizen Challenge before Christmas and took a break over the holiday period, so took quite a bit longer to complete the challenge than 49 days. With hindsight, that was stupid. I know I would have gotten more out of it if I had stuck to the 49 day timeframe. So, as a word of advice to Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-12-18 We think about money so much. But what do we think about?   How much we have. How much we need. How much we want.   We only see it from that point of view.   And I would say, this is not enough. Considering how much of our time it takes up, we should know it better.   Why? Because it isn’t just there. Like a mountain. Or the sea. People made it. People manage it. It’s not perfect. It’s not neutral. It’s not like a force of... Read more...
