- Berries. Berries give your body a blast of antioxidants and promote heightened immunity, nix inflammation and stabilize your blood sugar. Mix ‘em up and enjoy! No need to buy fresh, frozen are excellent too. Frozen berries cost less than fresh and are an extra tasty add to your morning smoothie! If you do go fresh, please make sure to either buy organic and wash or buy traditional and do a serious cleaning. Berries have thin skin and traditionally grown berries can have 50+ pesticides and chemicals on them.
- Citrus. Citrus fruits boost your immunity and cleanse your body. The fiber-filled pulp helps to regulate your intestinal motility and keeps you satisfied. Citrus is bursting with antioxidants and vitamins that invigorate and revitalize your senses and help protect you against seasonal colds and flu.
- Melons. Melons are a low glycemic fruit that hydrates your body with nourishing micronutrients and antioxidants. Melons promote detoxification, clear the skin, aid in blood sugar regulation and provide the sweetness we desire with no guilt! If you have problems drinking your eight glasses of water a day, try snacking on melon to increase your hydration and energy.
- Pineapple. Pineapple is a fruit rich in enzymes that help your body effectively digest and metabolize your nutrients. Pineapple is an excellent facilitator of good health as it ushers nutrients into our body that we often miss. Pineapple tastes great and is a hydrating vitamin dense fruit.
Remember that adding daily vitamin and mineral supplements and drinking plenty of water will greatly increase your wellness! Activity is awesome too! Now go get your best health on!
