Can you tell I love fruit?!

Vitamins C, A and E- Citrus fruits, strawberries and many other fruits contain these vitamins which are important antioxidants that protect your body from the damage.

Phytonutrients- The pigments that make blueberries blue, rasperberries and cranberries red are called phytonutrients: powerful antioxidants that protect your body against cancer-causing radicals. They may also slow down the effects of aging!

The Brain- Studies have shown that a diet high in fruit can help prevent many of the symptoms of diseases like Alzheimer's and other deteriorating conditions of the brain.

strawberries have always been a favorite of mine

The USDA recommends at least five servings of fruit in your daily diet.
Tips to make it happen:
  1. Add fruit to breakfast cereal.
  2. Prepare fruit salads to last few days.
  3. Find recipes that contain fruit.
  4. Smoothies!(I make these at home all the time!) Check out a great fat burning recipe here and a good energy boosting smoothie here

** Fruit has also been shown to refresh the face, eliminate black spots, and smooth the skin.
