The worst thing you can do is peel an apple
Wilmington, NC (Vocus) August 6, 2009
Figuring out what fresh fruit should be on your grocery list can be confusing given the numerous options available. And in these tough economic times, consumers want to get the most nutrition out of every dollar they spend. Dr. David Friedman, CEO of Chews-4-Health and health expert on Lifetime Television's popular morning show, "The Balancing Act", recently revealed four healthy fruits that should definitely be on everyone's shopping list.
Number one on his list is the apple. Apples contain large amounts of fiber and pectin, which aid in colon health, as well as valuable antioxidants. However, Friedman explained there is a "wrong" way to eat an apple.
"The worst thing you can do is peel an apple," he said on a recent episode of the show. "The apple's skin and underlying layer are where key nutrients exist. If you peel the apple you will lose many of its health-enhancing properties."
Also making Friedman's list of the healthiest fruits is the pomegranate , which is loaded with potassium, and vitamins C and B6.
"Another great thing about pomegranates is the seeds. They contain antioxidants and fiber, and are a great low-calorie snack you can have instead of popcorn while you're watching television," he said.
"Third on my list is blueberries," said Friedman. "They contain more antioxidants than any other fruit. And if you are a parent and find your children are having problems concentrating in school, get them blueberries! They may help with concentration and focus."
The last "must-get" fruit Friedman recommends is the pineapple. Pineapples contain an enzyme called bromelain, which has been shown to aid digestion and immune system function.
"Fruits can be expensive, especially if you're on a tight budget," said Friedman. "These are the four fruits I believe give you the most 'bang for your buck', and these are the ones I would spend my money on."
