The SUMO Tangerine

Typically, when I think of a tangerine, what comes to mind is the small, palm-sized citrus fruit that one might eat two or three of as part of a snack with some fresh chard and wild salmon!

I saw, for my first time, a different variety of tangerine the other day during one of my twice weekly shoppes at Whole Foods- 

The SUMO Tangerine (shown below next to a 2-cup measure for reference).


High in  vitamin C and flavonoids, fiber, and a good source of B vitamins (including vitamins B1, B2, and B6, folic acid, and pantothenic acid), carotenes, pectin, potassium, and folic acid, they're not only a tasty part of a Paleo snack, they're contributing positively to your body's overall well being!

Throw some segments on your salad, zest the rind and add it to a marinade, or slice it and add it to a pitcher of filtered water for a hint of orange essence.
