Easy-to-peel fruit with honeyed taste and a hint of tartness.
The Perks: With only 35 calories and nine grams of carbs each, clementines are portion controlled by nature. And according to research, if you eat them daily and drink green tea regularly, you may reduce your cancer risk by 11 percent while potentially lowering your risk of heart disease.
The Prep: Add clementines to salads to tame peppery greens. Moulton tosses 3 peeled and segmented clementines with 1 bunch arugula, 1 cup thinly shaved fennel, 6 sliced radishes, and 1/2 cup pitted, chopped Kalamata olives.
