Organics vs. Nonorganics
Organic fruits should be left out on the table, provide healthy food options to your family or cut up your organic fruit and place in small baggies. Leave the baggies of organic fruit in the fridge for everyone to nibble on when they need a little pick-me-upper.
Your body is craving natural vitamins found in fruit. You should be giving your body between 5 and 9 servings of fruit a day. Organic fruit is cholesterol free, makes you feel better, is great brain food, and is filled with fiber.
Always opt for organic fresh fruit over canned or frozen fruit, when given the chance. Fresh fruit is loaded with lots of nutrients and vitamins. Frozen fruit is flash frozen and that seals in many nutrients and vitamins.Frozen fruit is harvested at the peak of ripeness. Unlike fresh fruits that are picked before they ripen, allowing for ripening during transit to your local grocery store. Canned fruit has the least nutritional value due to extensive heating occurring during the canning process. There are benefits to canned fruit.
