Because nothing beats sitting down to a gorgeous plate of fruit every morning!
Think of all the colors, shapes, and textures of fruit as different antioxidants and phytonutrients to load up on. And then include a variety of fruits in your diet to take advantage of all the benefits they have to offer — from fighting colds and warding off inflammation to making your skin glow and your hair shiny.
Instead of sitting down to a piece of toast or an egg white omelet tomorrow morning, do something amazing for your health and indulge in one of these delicious fruit plates.
1Anti-inflammatory plate: Cherry, pineapple, blueberry
Pineapple is packed with vitamin C and contains an enzyme called bromelain that reduces inflammation of the gut, boosts immune function, and stimulates protein digestion.
Try combining it with blueberries, which are loaded with antioxidants and vitamins A, C, and E.
Anthocyanin is the main antioxidant in both blueberries and cherries and is what gives these fruits their gorgeous deep blue and red colors.
Grab some tart cherries over sweet ones as they are shown to contain higher amounts of phenolic compounds, delivering a stronger anti-inflammatory punch.
