Get the Skinny on Fresh Fruits

Pineapple in Half FDP Credit AmbroWhy should I add fruit to my diet? Aside from the good taste, eating at least three servings of fresh fruits a day helps reduce your risk of heart attack and stroke, diabetes and cancer.

Fruit has no cholesterol and is loaded with minerals and vitamins; fresh fruits are a healthy, high-fiber addition to your diet.

Along with the more traditional fruits, you should choose the “fruit-vegetables,” such as cucumber, avocado, tomato, and green and hot pepper. Don’t forget about nuts--these are also classified in the fruit category as well. Hazelnuts, almonds, macadamia nuts, ground nuts and chestnuts all give you health benefits. Learn more about fresh fruits and their benefits by reading our Bright Hub guides.
