August is here, and we at Farm Star Living know youâ€™re slowly but surely getting back into routine after all your vacations and trips with friends and family! However, just because summerâ€™s coming to end doesnâ€™t mean the get-togethers should as well!
Letâ€™s be honest, one of the most important parts about hanging out with friends and family is the food. What can you bring that you know no one else will have thought of, but will also be a crowd-pleaser?
One recipe weâ€™ve found to be both easy and versatile is our KiwiStar Kiwi & Berry Fruit Salad with Lime Simple Syrup! Itâ€™s the perfect way to spice-up some of your go-to fruits for a dish everyone will be grabbing a bite of! Thatâ€™s why weâ€™ve partnered with a company like KiwiStar to help bring it to you!
But what makes their kiwis so good? These babies have been grown all over the world including Italy and Chile! They are grown strictly to achieve the premium standard of kiwis that are shipped across oceans to customers just like us!
Not only are they delicious, but these kiwis have been grown by people who also strive to remain socially conscious with their organic and Biodynamic lines of kiwis! Their Biodynamic kiwis are grown on organic farms that utilize plants, animals, air, water and soil into a regulating ecosystem. With sustainable farming, they are able to maintain healthy farms that take care of not only their products, but the earth and animals in the same ecosystem!
At only 56 calories, Kiwis are a light, heart-healthy way to reduce anxiety and your blood pressure rate!
Did you know one serving of kiwifruit (two medium fruits) contains more potassium than a banana, the vitamin C of two oranges, and the amount of fiber in a bowl of bran cereal? What?!
One of our favorite parts about putting dishes together is the endless combinations and ways to make a recipe your own! With the KiwiStar Kiwi & Berry Fruit Salad with Lime Simple Syrup, weâ€™ve given you the building blocks for creating a dish with the special touch everyone will love!
