Do We Always Eat Fruit In A Healthy Way?

We tend to think that whenever we eat fruits and vegetables, we are taking care of our body by providing it with rich and healthy foods. However, when eating any type of fruit or vegetable, we must pay attention to the way we eat it and also where we acquire it.

Whenever possible, we should purchase our fruits and vegetables from establishments that sell organic, local products or even, if possible, directly from the farmer. Sustainable cultivation is essential to obtain a piece of food that is toxic-free, at least to a large extent.

How should fruit be consumed?

Everyone is aware that produce needs to be thoroughly cleaned before cooking or consuming it. Sometimes it's also a good idea to peel the skin to prevent ingesting the pesticides that certain crops require to keep away from the terrible bugs.

Experts advise or recommend washing the fruit we consume very well, even using a brush to do so, one of those on the market.

When possible and especially when eating the skin, we should soak the portion in a vinegar and water solution for about fifteen minutes before eating it. This is especially true for fruits like strawberries, pears, and apples that absorb the most pesticides.

When is the best time to consume fruit?

Remember that the saying that "eating fruit at night makes you fat" is not true. Although some fruits have a high fructose content that raises blood sugar levels, but think that it is always better to eat fruit than any other higher-calorie and less healthy food.

Additionally, we should always aim to give our bodies at least two hours to digest any food we eat before going to bed to promote healthy sleep patterns. We will sleep better and digest food more effectively in this way.

How can we consume more fruit?

It is recommended by experts to consume three to five servings of fruit daily. We should select seasonal goods and choose as many as we can.

A useful tip for adding more fruit to our diets regularly is to prepare it, cut it and store it in jars, so that it is easier for us to eat it both inside and outside the home.

For instance, when purchasing pineapple, which may be somewhat uncomfortable to eat, we can divide it in half, store one half in jars, and wrap the other half in clear paper to prevent drying out, so we can eat it later. We frequently use this approach at home for both melon and watermelon too

Making our fruit container ready to take to the office is another possibility. If that's the only food we have access to, we'll eat it in between meals instead of reaching for other, less nutritious snacks.

As we've already discussed, experts advice consuming roughly five pieces of fruit each day, and everyone can distribute them however they want, depending on their appetite.

For instance, it is simpler to consume many pieces of fruit during breakfast. We can also prepare a big bowl of different fruits before going to bed, like watermelon, melon, oranges, or pears, so that when we wake up, we already have our fruit for the day.
