Which of these fruit quotes is your favorite?

Eating fruit is good for our bodies for a few reasons.

They are packed with vitamins and minerals, and high in fiber.

They also have antioxidants and flavonoids.

A diet high in fruit can reduce the risks of developing cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and inflammation.

Are some fruits better than others?

Berries and apples are the healthiest fruit choices, so that adage, “An apple a day, keeps the doctor away,” might hold some weight!

Watermelon, oranges, and guava are great healthy fruit choices too.

Adding lemon to your water can help prevent kidney stones.

So, next time you are craving something sweet and juicy, you can have that piece of fruit with no guilt.

It only tastes bad for you!

However, bananas are not a great choice if you are trying to eat low carb.

Avocados and grapes are high in calories, too, but if you are going to consume some extra calories choose those over sweet snacks!
