  1. I love kiwis. I didn’t realize they were good for lowering cholesterol though. Looks like I need to make them a regular part of my meal planning.

    I like your food fact posts! I’ve yet to read one and not learn something interesting. Keep it up.

    Love your facts, cheers from cold, grey Melbourne x
