Healthy Snacking: Fresh Fruits!
This summer I've tried to curb my appetite for sugary sweets like gummi bears and Skittles. Instead, I've opted for delicious fresh fruits. We all need to make a conscious effort to make fruits a part of our daily diets.
The summer is the best season to get your hands on a the freshest fruits available and for a more affordable price. Right now, the fruits in season are: blueberries, blackberries, apples, melons, grapes, nectarines and peaches. Add them to a salad or keep them at work for a healthy snack.
So put down those sugary snacks and head to your local farmer's market or produce store to stock up on fruits that are tasty and good for you!
What are your favorite fruits?
