If You Can Only Eat One Piece Of Fruit A Day, Which Kind Should It Be?
There's nothing as fresh tasting as citrus salad. Just a few ingredients like blood orange, grapefruit or mandarin sections topped with chia, hemp, sunflower and pumpkin seeds make a super quick and healthy, no excuses, kind of breakfast. The seeds add a nuty crunch but more inportantly, provide omega 3's and protein too.
If you can only choose one fruit per day, make it citrus. Why? Citrus contains an impressive list of important vitamins, minerals, and fiber, but also non-nutrient compounds called phytochemicals which reduce the risk of chronic diseases. If eating these yummy fruits helps the body to function optimally and contributes to staving off heart disease, diabetes, alzheimers and cancer, it's a win-win.
