Don't Wanna Buy Oranges-Vit. C Alternatives?

Leonardo Feb 10, 2007 10:54 AM

What with the price of oranges etc. skyrocketing, I don't wish to buy so many.

I know that potatoes & broccoli are a good source of vitamin C.
Any other favorite foods that have it?

    I think Brussels sprout season is winding down, so you better hurry up if you want to try them. 4-6 of those little things contain the adult daily vitamin C requirements.

              "Strawberries ... an excellent source of vitamin C and manganese. They also qualified as a very good source of dietary fiber and iodine as well as a good source of potassium, folate, riboflavin, vitamin B5, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B6, vitamin K, magnesium, and copper."

              from this website http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tn...

              although the price of strawberries may not be much better
