Probably my favourite group. Delicious and nutritious! You can eat them at any time of the day or as a snack. What I like to do is eat an apple or pear in the morning on an empty stomach, because it helps digestion and the nutrients and juices from the fruits get absorbed faster in the body, because the stomach is empty.
I love bananas! I am bananas . But tropical fruits are usually collected raw and ripe on the way to the supermarket or as bananas, they’re put in a chamber where they gas them with substances as ethylene and you can guess that’s not quite natural. There are ways to spot if a tropical fruit is natural. For example, bananas which are yellow and soft are better or my favourite, dark yellow with small round black spots which sweet and soft. Mangos have a coloured peel, more red than green and are not rock hard. You get point, feel the texture, smell it, squeeze it, taste it. Buy it, try it and figure it out for yourself.
Other fruits like melons, apples, plums, berries go the seasonal way for me. I eat them in the summertime or autumn, whenever they’re ripe. They are way more delicious this way, contain more antioxidants and less chemical compounds.
Eat the wide variety of the rainbow for more flavour and the delicious beneficial compounds for the body. Most fruits contain a lot of water. People stress how important water and hydration is for us and it is. However, if you consume large amounts of fruits and veggies, don’t worry about drinking water like crazy.
