Fruits are an essential part of a healthy lifestyle. They are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and fibre that can help you stay fit, strong and energised, along with keeping your digestion in check. According to celebrity nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar, we all must have at least one seasonal fruit in a day. Fruits are best eaten as a snack, in-between meals, and not after a meal as a dessert. Bananas, oranges, berries, pineapple and avocado are all fruits which should be a part of your diet regularly.
Dr Siddhant Bhargava, wellness and lifestyle expert, recently took to Instagram to talk about a few fruits which he swears by.
3 fruits that a nutritionist swears by
It can be blueberries, blackberries, raspberries and even strawberries. As long as they are fresh and not frozen, you can have them daily, without any guilt. Berries are perfect for increasing your intake of antioxidants and can help in slowing down ageing.
Oranges are one of the best sources of vitamin c. This nutrient is essential for you to have a strong immune function. "Vitamin C is a very potent antioxidant. It can prevent degenerative conditions and ageing," says Dr Bhargava.
A lot of you may have lived to believe that avocado is a vegetable, but no it is a fruit. And yes, they are easily available now. Avocados are supremely rich in potassium, a nutrient which can be beneficial for high blood pressure patients. Furthermore, "Avocados have a lot of healthy monounsaturated fats that can help in regulating cholesterol and triglycerides," Dr Bhargava informs.
Apart from these fruits, you can have banana, apples, grapes or any other fruits that are locally and easily available in the market. They will provide you with several nutrients that can keep you fit, healthy and disease-free. What's more, they can also be included in a weight loss diet.
To reap benefits from eating fruit, make sure you have whole fruits. Having fruit juice is fine once in a while. But juicing fruits not only robs them of their fibre, but also increase your intake of sugar.
