Tip for the Day
The best way to eat fruit is in its whole state, but obviously being creative with fruit recipes makes meals a bit more interesting. Remember to buy fruit in season, not only is it cheaper but it tastes sweeter and healthier.
Summer fruits include mangoes, litchis, grapes, watermelons, peaches, nectarines, apricots, cherries, strawberries and plums. While winter fruits are oranges, tangerines, papaya, kiwi fruit, guavas, apples and pears. Bananas and pineapples are available all year round. Although many of these fruits are available all year round, they are often kept in cold storage for up to nine months. Flavour and nutrients are lost during storage and the cores are often bad.
