9. Oranges

Oranges are great for a quick, refreshing energy boost that provides fluid, fibre and natural sugars. That’s why they’re a popular snack during half time in team sports.

Just one orange can provide an entire day’s requirement of vitamin C, which protects against oxidative stress that is heightened during exercise.

Oranges also contain flavonoids that help protect the immune system.
Diet tip: Eat the whole fruit rather than drinking just the juice, as you’ll get more fibre this way.
