Make healthy eating easy by keeping the foods you need close at hand. Keep a bowl of fruit on your counter at home, stash nuts or dried fruit in your desk or keep pre-washed and cut carrots, celery and broccoli crowns in your fridge for a quick snack.

Fruits are good sources for nutrients that help to enhance our immune system and strengthen our body.  The amount of fruit you need to eat depends on age, sex, and level of physical activity.  Recommended daily amounts for women and men over 40 are 1 1/2 to 2 cups.

Here are 10 fruits to add to your shopping list:

  1. Apples
  2. Apricots
  3. Bananas
  4. Blackberries
  5. Blueberries
  6. Cantaloupe
  7. Cherries
  8. Grapefruit
  9. Grapes (purple)
  10. Kiwi

These fruits are small but they carry a big punch in terms of their nutritional value. If you want to get fit and well faster, you definitely need to include all of them in your healthy dietary plan.

In upcoming articles, I will be dissecting each of these fruits and will give you information on the nutritional and health benefits you get when you eat them. I’m sure you will be surprised to learn just how powerful they are. Please check back often so you won’t miss these informative articles that will be full of little known facts..
