I like to eat fruits. I will add it whenever i will have meal. The intake of food will be less and fruits will be more. I heard it will give more energy and vitamins. Fruits contains antioxidants which keeps us healthy. Fruits balance our diet. What is your opinion? Share with me.

It is true that fruits are good for our health. But,there is a proper time and way for eating fruits with our meal. Fruits contains natural acid and enzymes that makes it easier to digest than cooked foods. So,when we eat fruits,we must eat it one hour or more before having our meal. In this process,the fruits enzymes are already digested by our system,and when we eat cooked foods,the enzymes are ready to digest the cooked foods that we intake. Cooked foods doesn't contain any enzymes so,the fruits that we have eaten will help the cooked food to be digested easily.

Yes, I eat unripe mango along with my lunch or dinner especially with chili soy sauce. It's really very appetizing.

Fruits are great, especially in the summer months. You should come to my house and pick cherries. I have been away, and the guys do not get it done. We are healthier when we eat fresh foods.

Hi Bart78, yeah oatmeal is also good for health. Most of the people will take it as breakfast. After meals taking fruits is really healthy habit. Thanks for your sharing. Have a healthy day.

I know it's very bad but I don't eat that much fruit really. I honestly prefer vegetables to fruit and fruit can be so expensive at times too. My father in law eats atleast four pieces of fruit per day and I wish I could do it but I do't find it to be very satisfying or filling.
