Fruits are Yummy!
Eating a variety of fruits is a really great idea. I used to only eat one or two fruits – banana and an apple – because they were easy to grab and eat on the go. Although eating a little bit of fruit is better than eating no fruits at all, I always wanted to eat more as well as a variety of fruits. Nowadays, I eat more fruits, yay! I finally expanded my fruit selection by experimenting here and there, and find that I tend to like the more popular types of fruits – apple (green and red), banana, grapes (green and red), grapefruit, oranges, kiwi, cantaloupe, papaya, pear, tangerine, plum, and all types of berries. I especially like to buy a variety and make a fruit bowl – delicious! Even though the availability of fruits can vary greatly depending on your particular region, there are still usually lots of fruit choices due to the fact that most foods travel by truck to get to the store for retail sale. Unfortunately, food milesare a major cause of pollution making it a great idea to buy any and all foods you can that are local to your particular area. Fruit makes a great healthy breakfast! Eat a variety of fruits for lots of great nutrition or add them on top or on the side of your breakfast plate. Currently, my favorite fruit is blackberries. What’s yours?
