I’d like to talk a little about benefits today. It is a good word with a positive tone. When you choose to eat fruit, it is going to come with benefits. Where do I begin….how many body functions can thrive when fruit is in your diet. Let me name them: Adrenals, Bladder, Bones, Brain/Nerves, Bronchi, Ears, Eyes, Female Reproductive Organs, Gall Bladder, Gums/Teeth, Hair/Scalp, Heart, Intestines, Joints, Kidneys, Liver, Lungs, Lymphatics, Male Reproductive Organs, Mammary Glands/Breasts, Muscles, Nails, Pancreas, Pituitary Pineal, Prostate, Skin, Spine, Thymus, Thyroid, Uterus, and Veins and Arteries. WOW right! One good thing about fruit is the sweetness, most people like sweet. Eating a few servings of fruit each day not only add bulk (fiber which helps you feel full and aids digestion) and water, but helps curbs cravings for the wrong kind of sweets. I happen to believe that most people crave sweets naturally because our first introduction to food, breast milk, is a little sweet. Fruit is low in fat, salt and calories (compared to many other carbohydrate choices) and has fiber. Fruit is rich in vitamins and has no bad stuff (we are not counting sprays and stuff like that). It is great for building a strong immune system. There is such a great variety you must be able to find something that you like! I suggest you eat two to three servings a day! This is the time of year to get started, there is no time like the present to make good changes!
