    Kiwi Carpaccio

    Most often made with razor-thin slices of beef or fish, think of this Instagram-ready dish as carpaccio for dessert lovers. And since it features slices of vitamin C-rich kiwi, your immune system may benefit as much as your taste buds. You could also sprinkle on some granola and call it breakfast.

    Tips

    • Skyr yogurt is an Icelandic style of yogurt with a thick texture, a bit like Greek yogurt. It’s now readily available in dairy aisles.
    • One recent study found that adding kiwi to your diet may also help improve sleep quality, which plays a role in your overall defence against infections.
