Fruit is an important part of your diet. USDA guidelines recommend the average adult should eat 1- ½ to 2 cups per day. The American Heart Association recommends adults eat four to five servings of fruit per day. The message is clear, but how can you do this with your busy lifestyle? It is common for some people to incorporate fruit at breakfast, or maybe as a snack, but what about dinner?
Let’s take pineapple. In Florida, pineapple is at peak of season from March through July – which means it is of the highest quality and sweetness during these months. Research shows that this delicious fruit could help shorten viral and bacterial infections and increase bone strength (1). Pineapple is high in Vitamin C, which is an immune system booster (2). Some cultures consider pineapple as helpful to reduce inflammation because it is high in bromelain (3).
