We were fortunate to collaborate with Health Well Wise on an article explaining how we can turn snacking into our friend and improve our overall diet. We shared some wonderful snacks everyone can enjoy without guilt such as popcorn, applesauce, smoothies just to name a few. In this post, we want to tackle the question – how many times to eat, when to eat, and how much.
Fresh fruits are very healthy and nutrient rich foods to include in your diet. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (aka CDC) recommends consuming at least 1.5 to 2 cups of fruits daily. The best time and best way to consume fruit is any.
Ways To Consume Fruits
There are many ways to consume fruits. For instance, eating raw fruits, eating frozen fruit, making fruit smoothies and juicing, combining fruit with other food. Check out our mango and yogurt snack as an example. You can also dry fruits. Check out our mango chips recipe. Smoothies and freshly squeezed juices are a fast and easy way to add some fresh fruits to your day.
I am usually very busy to sit down and enjoy eating a banana, kiwi, strawberries, and blackberries in one sitting. However, I enjoy drinking those fruits into a smoothie on the way to work. Yah, I have that 1-hour one-way work commute during which I sip on my freshly made smoothie. My husband, on the other hand, will chew on an apple while driving. It makes me crazy watching him driving with one hand and holding an apple with the other. I feel we would crash any minute! But it works for him. So, just experiment with what works for you. The goal is that you do consume at least 1.5 cups of fruits a day.
