2-4 servings of fruit should be included daily in a healthy diet. It provides vitamins and minerals for a healthy body and reduce the risk of cancer. I love fruits and I like almost every fruit. Recently, I have been eating a lot of watermelon! I add a bit of salt to it and I feel so refreshed afterward especially when the watermelon is cold. What fruit have you been craving for lately? Today I ate half a mango, some watermelon, and probably eat an orange later.

I would probably eat about any fruit but, the fruit that I like the most would be mango. I could eat non-stop of ripe mangoes and endless green mangos with shrimp paste, spicy shirmp paste like Bario Fiesta (^_^ )

if i go to local market, i usually buy apples, oranges, pears, pineapples, watermelon and mangoes because they are my favorite. 2or 3 servings is good and healthy, but sometimes i dont eat fruits in a day. You remind me to eat my favorite fruit, that is pineapple hehehe. Every morning when i wake up, i like to eat apples, when apple is not available, ill pick orange. During lunch time, i will crave for pineapple since i mix it with rice (yes i mix it with rice). At dinner, i prefer orange again or pears. But i do twice a week cleansing diet , where i mix all fruits and eat it from morning till lunch time. This consist of banana, watermelon, apple, pears, mango and orange. happy eating fruits. be healthy Thanks, Happy mylotting!!!

I eat fruits daily. My favorites are oranges, kiwi, cherries, apples, melon and strawberries. I also like peaches, apricots and wild berries. The fruit is like a lolly to me and eating them daily I get two benefits: 1) stay healthy and get all needed vitamins, 2) treat myself with sweet and fresh snacks as I consider fruits.

Yes they are a great and healthy substitute to other sweets which contain a lot of simple sugar! Thanks for sharing!

I agree with stookie! Oh lemons are great, and there are endless possibilities you can do with your lemon! Cakes, lemonade, etc. I love lemon pie! But ofcourse the fruit on its natural state is always best!

Today when I went shopping they had some very attractive strawberries and I couln't resist buying some. Also the canteloupes were so good-looking and huge that I had to buy one. Now I'll wait just for the time when it ripens just right and yummy. Today was banana day and I think I ate about 20. Yummy!

I haven't had strawberries for quite a while. They aren't very common in my region! I'd love to have some strawberry shake soon! wait, you ate 20 of what?

Can you get frozen strawberries? You heard right, 20 bananas. In fact I eat that most days. That's 2000 calories with all good nutrients. If you don't believe just ask a gorilla the next time you're at the zoo. Today along with bananas I also had lots of grapes, some tangerines, and more strawberries. The other day I bought lots of kiwis and eating them as they ripen. Have a fruitful day!

I love kiwis, strawberries raspberries and watermelon. I like alot of other fruits like honey dew melon, bananas, apples, oranges. But the others are my favs. I cant eat oranges unless someone peels them for me or my hands swell up so bad i cant bend my fingers.

my favourites are watermelon and durian. but too much of durian is not good because it's a very heaty fruit. And too much watermelon is too "cold" for one's body. Especially when i come my monthly. So i normally eat the norms - apples, pears, oranges

i love bananas. they said it's much healthier than eating an apple. there's even this campaign going on that the saying should be changed to " a banana a day keeps the doctor away" good thing i love bananas ever since.

Bananas are great and really healthy! My boyfriend eats a lot of bananas! What I also like about bananas is you can bring them anywhere and you don't need a knife, a plate, or a peeler to eat it. It is also called the fruit of the wise! Didi you know that the word banana came from the Arab word banan which means finger? ^__^

well, i love to eat strawberrys and greapfruit too. I don`t know how it`s said in english, but i love to ear (nectarine) . That`s the ultimate on my list of fruits that i love. I eat watermelon only in the summer, because then it`s time for them in my country. And they are cheap too.

Nectarines when in season, can be simply delicious. They are a bit like a peach and apricot, but have a unique taste that eaten at the right time are a real treat. I hope that one day you get to try a real juicy one!

Hmm... watermelon with salt? That is new to me. I have never tried it like that before. Salt with pineapple yes. Black soya sauce with mangoes or pineapples, yes. But not salt with watermelon. Well, some of the fruits I love to eat are mangoes and guava. But just that alone does not provide all the vitamins required for the day. I usually mix them with grapes, apples, oranges, pears and melons.
