Nature's Candy

Exams are fast approaching for many of us and because of
that fact, we may not be getting to the gym as much as we would like to. Will
missing a couple sessions at the gym hurt your overall health? Not a chance.
However, why not help the body out during those long study sessions and instead
of chowing down a bag of chips, or eating up a candy bar, have some fantastic
tasting fruits!

The Choose
My Plate
 website states that fruits are low calorie, low sodium and have
no cholesterol, which makes them an awesome alternative snack option throughout
the day. Here are some tips for making fruits a more prominent part of your day.
Remember, the easier the action, the more likely it is become a habit.

  •  Convenience
    is Key (i.e. have them out on your desk or in your mini fridge)
  •  Make
    them Tasty (i.e. check the freshness & purchase fruits in season)
  •  Keep
    them Exciting (i.e. try new fruits, enjoy a variety of fruits, etc.)

For me, eating fruit that is in season is what makes all the
difference. Being that it is fall, I am looking out especially for Grapes,
Pears, Sugar Apples and Cranberries. Grapes and Cranberries are bite size so
they can easily be popped into the mouth while typing away at the computer.
Apples and Pears are easy to pack in your book bag and can be eaten with one hand
while the other one holds the book being read.

Fruits my friends, they are nature’s candy!
