Elle here!!! So, summer is quickly approaching and I’m excited, but I’m not excited. Why? Well it gets hot and humid here in NC so that’s a drag. On the bright side of things, I’ll be eating lots and lots of fruit and you should too. Not only is fruit filling, but its full of great benefits and its a food that keeps you cool during the hot summer months.
Some of my go-to fruits are dragon fruit (pitaya), blueberries, raspberries, kiwi, strawberries, mango, jackfruit, and avocado. If you haven’t tried dragon fruit, its a MUST!!! Dragon fruit is packed with vitamin C, which helps keep our immune system strong. Other benefits includes, aiding in digestion, cardiovascular health, and anti-aging. So this summer give your inner body a glowing boost.
Enjoy fruit alone or mixed!
