You’ve seen them at the front desk, but they’re more than just looking pretty. Clementine Mandarin Oranges or Cuties are only about 40 calories and in season right now! They are a hybrid of a sweet orange and a Chinese Mandarin and are at their best between November and April. One or two of these little darlings make a great recovery snack for any workout. They are easy to peel, the rind is thin and most often comes off in one piece. Double up on your vitamin C with a couple of Cuties every day to fight colds, flu and other viruses hanging around this winter season. The fiber content of these little guys will keep hunger away so you can get past your workout and get on with your day.
Next time you’re heading out the door at HIP go ahead and grab a Cutie. A Cutie for recovery!
