10 Foods rich in vitamin C

Strawberries

That handful of berries (okay, it was 10) you snuck in the field at the U-pick farm? That sampling helped you take in more than 70 mg of vitamin C.

1

Grapefruit

That grapefruit your grandma has with breakfast every morning? She’s onto something. Just half of one has 39 mg of vitamin C.

2

Cantaloupe

You’ll get 37 mg of vitamin C from 1 large wedge of this sweet, orange melon. Just one more reason to bring it to every picnic all summer long, right?

3

Mango

You probably don’t need any convincing to devour a mango (so juicy, so sweet). But just in case you do, a single fruit will give you almost exactly the amount of C you need for the day.

4

Raspberries

Strawberries don’t get all the glory. Their smaller cousins are rich in vitamin C too, with 39 mg per cup.

5

Snow Peas

Toss them in your stir-fry or snack on them raw with hummus or ranch. A single cup will give you 84 mg of vitamin C, getting you above that 75 mg daily value mark.

6

Lemons

Bring on the citrus fruits—or perhaps more specifically, some homemade lemonade: The juice of just 1 lemon is loaded with 18 mg of vitamin C.

7

Papaya

For a dish that tastes like summer, serve up some diced papaya: A cup of cubed papaya provides 88 mg of vitamin C. In a hurry? Blend it up in a tropical smoothie instead.

8

Brussels Sprouts

Half a cup of cooked sprouts serves up 48 mg of vitamin C, more than half of what you need in a day.

9

Kale

kale is also packed with vitamin C—1 cup of raw kale has nearly 20 mg of vitamin C.
