Focus on Fruit

Posted 06/04/2012 | By HealthCorps

Fruits are not only delicious, but also an essential component of a healthy diet!  They are full of cancer-fighting antioxidants and have enough fiber to help you stay full on less.  Fresh fruit is best, but frozen and cenned (without sugar) also has its benefits.  Dried fruit is nutritious as well but less filling, so be mindful of serving size!

Make fruit part of your routine this week.  Add a daily dose at breakfast, as a mid-day snack, or for dessert.  If you already consistently enjoy fruit each day, add one more piece to the mix!  Not only will you be getting more nutrients, you’ll likely have less room for processed snacks.
