Tips for Tuesday: Benefits of Fruits

Now I know there are some of you out there who are not big fruit fans and I am one of them. And there are some of you out there who will eat fruit like it’s going out of season. Like everything God created He created fruit to help us, refresh us, and keep us healthy and the more we learn about fruit the more we can see benefits to eating them. So if you’re like me and it’s not on your high priority to eat fruit, I challenge you to at least try adding some fruit to your meal plans at least 2 times a week. Who knows maybe we can learn to like fruit more and increase in eating it more throughout the weeks. And if you love fruit add more it can’t hurt.

Cherries: Strengthens the heart and circulatory system, helps calm the nervous system

As you can see there is a good list to start from and there are so many more benefits and so many more fruits you can learn about. My challenge to you and myself is to get some more fruit into your home and into your bodies over the next few weeks. Two to three times a week at least and be daring, try some new fruit, you might find yourself liking it. Happy eating!
