Health 101: Fruits

Hey there!

I feel so good to be making yet another post. Blogging has been so much fun and it’s because of you, you and you! Yes,you! We’re counting down to the end of September! It’s been an amazing month, don’t you think so?

This post was birthed by the daily ‘gist'(PS: ”gist” means information) I get from my cousin, I call her Dr. Joe. She’s a Nutritionist and Dietitian in the making..ever since she got into school, she has learnt so much, taught everyone of us and even put into practice. So I say to myself, ”I have to blog about this”. I did my research and realized the benefits of eating fruits and vegetables cannot be overemphasized!

I’d tell you what Dr. Joe told me then what I realized… Dr. Joe told me fruits are best taken 30 minutes before eating cooked meals.. ”WHAT!”, I thought. I wouldn’t even remember to take fruits before shoving several spoons of rice and stew down my throat or even ‘eba’..lol *sigh*…Well, she also said fruits are best eaten on an empty stomach, you knew that right? I had also heard about it but I had always believed that when fruits being acidic are eaten on an empty stomach, the stomach also being acidic; they begin to eat up your stomach walls *shrugs*. Dr. Joe says when fruits are ingested, they turn to ‘alkaline’ and aid food digestion!

What I realized…

  • Fruits contain nutrients that are vital for health and maintenance.
  • Fruits keep your eyes healthy.
  • Fruits are naturally low in calories so a fruit diet is just perfect. In fact, you should not go on a diet and exempt fruits. Make your diet FRUIT-rich! I actually intend to do that soon, go on a fruits and veggies only diet. Just I don’t know when and how possible that is..lol
  • Also realized that eating plenty of fruits may help reduce the risk of many diseases even as small as cold and catarrh.Β fruits

My Mum says it too sef that eating fruits is good for your skin, quoting her; ”it makes your skin look fresh”..lol. Now I believe her!(PS: I did before oh, but not 100% sha). By the way, fruits I enjoy eating now are watermelon, apple, orange and pineapple.

Just so you know, no single fruit or vegetable provides all of the nutrients you need to be healthy. EAT PLENTY EVERYDAY!

Lots of chocolate,

Aniee.
