Fruit Varieties and Healthy, Creative Ideas

One of the earliest harvested foods known to human civilization, fruit is a great addition to a healthy, balanced diet. You can find fruit in all colors, flavors and textures, and there are plenty of ways to get creative with it when it comes to cooking. Fruit can be classified into several categories, including drupes (pitted fruits, such as peaches), berries, pomes (such as apples) and melons, and vary based on region. Tropical fruits, for example, are typically found in warm climates. Regardless of type, fruits are generally packed with fiber and are high in essential vitamins and minerals.

When it comes to canned fruit, pay attention to the food label. These items often contain added sugars. If you want to keep this to a minimum and reduce the amount of calories you ingest through fruit, keep an eye out for words such as “Unsweetened,” “Natural juices,” “Canned fruit in water,” or “No Sugar Added.” Finally, dried fruit can also be a great snack to enjoy between meals. In this case, make sure to eat small portions as these little snacks can add up in sugar and calories as well. For some creative ways to add more fruit to your diet, opt for a blended juice or smoothie. This makes for a nutritious, convenient breakfast. You can also find trail mixes with added fruit or you can even top your yogurt or dessert with it for a kick of fresh, fruity flavor.
