Hiya everyone, we love talking about healthy eating — it’s one of our favorite values! We love healthy eating because we love living well and want everyone to live a long healthy life! And to live well, you’ve got to eat healthy to be successful. If you’re going to eat healthy, then you’ll need to know all the fruits that our amazing earth blessed us with. Fruits aren’t just mouthwatering and delicious — they are loaded with nutrients and phytonutrients.
It’s helpful to know that if you can grow your fruit, your fruit will be even more nutrient-dense. Why? Because you will be able to allow your fruit to ripen an extra 3-5 days, whereas farmers must harvest earlier in order to prevent spoilage on the shelves. Your best bet is to grow your own. But if you’re a city dweller, or don’t have a green thumb, your next best bet is Certified Organic fruit.
Certified Organic fruit is your best bet to make sure you the most amount of nutrients possible. Not only is Certified Organic fruit more nutrient-dense, it’s not grown with artificial fertilizers and pesticides, like the “basic” fruit offered at stores. Certified Organic fruit is a win-win.
Put away the candy, cookies, and snacks with preservatives and artificial colors and flavors, here is a list of 35 fruits for you and your family to guide to explore. OK, so there are more fruits to name, but our list of common fruits will get you started!
