Fruitilicious

There are many benefits to Fruit!!  Many times people are scared away from fruits because they are Carbohydrates and have sugar.  But I'm here to tell you that fruit is nature's perfect package.  Get a quick natural energy boost, wrapped in vitamins and fiber and packaged by nature to be eaten with just a hand and mouth (most of the time).  Yellow fruits such as apricots, cantaloupe, and persimmons are good sources of carotene which converts to vitamin A in the body.  Citrus Fruits such as oranges, grapefruit, lemons, and tangerines along with red and green peppers, and cantaloupe, strawberries, and tomatoes are best sources of Vitamin C.  Besides being high in Vitamin A and C they have many other health saving properties.  Look at the list below for your favorite fruit and enjoy!!!
