The Brighter the Color, the More Nutritious the Fruit!
Everyone knows that fruits and vegetables are good for you. In fact, according to the Healthy Eating Plate by Harvard School of Public Health, half of every meal should be made up of fruits and vegetables! But not all fruits are created equal.
Summer fruits that are bright in color such as honeydew melon, mangos, and cantaloupe are generally more nutritious than duller-colored fruits. Keep in mind that you’re looking at the color of the fruit flesh, not the peel or skin. Orange vegetables are especially good for you. Organic fruits are even healthier, as they are pesticide free.
Take a look at the list below to see which summer fruits have the most antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Choose your favorites and throw together some delicious Fruit Skewers!
