  4. 4. NATURE’S BOON FRUITS www.sastasundar.com Eating a diet rich in vegetables and fruits as part of an overall healthy diet may reduce risk for heart diseases, including heart attack and stroke. Eating a diet rich in some vegetables and fruits as part of an overall healthy diet may protect against certain types of cancers. Diets rich in foods containing fibre, such as some vegetables and fruits, may reduce the risk of heart disease, obesity, and Type 2 diabetes. Eating vegetables and fruits rich in potassium as part of an overall healthy diet may lower blood pressure, and may also reduce the risk of developing kidney stones and help to decrease bone loss. Eating foods such as fruits that are lower in calories per cup instead of some other higher-calorie food may be useful in helping to lower calorie intake. » » » » » 5 HEALTH BENEFITS
  5. 5. NATURE’S BOON FRUITS www.sastasundar.com Most fruits are naturally low in fat, sodium, and calories. None of the fruits have cholesterol. Fruits are sources of many essential nutrients that are under consumed, including potassium, dietary fibre, vitamin C, and folate(folic acid). Diets rich in potassium may help to maintain healthy blood pressure. Fruit sources of potassium include bananas, prunes and prune juice, dried peaches and apricots, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, and orange juice. Dietary fibre from fruits, as part of an overall healthy diet, helps reduce blood cholesterol levels and may lower risk of heart disease. Fibre is important for proper bowel function. It helps reduce constipation. Fibre containing foods such as fruits help provide a feeling of fullness with fewer calories. Whole or cut-up fruits are sources of dietary fibre. Vitamin C is important for growth and repair of all body tissues, helps heal cuts and wounds, and keeps teeth and gums healthy. Folate(folic acid) helps the body to form red blood cells. Women of childbearing age who may become pregnant should consume adequate folate from foods, and in addition 400 mg of synthetic folic acid from fortified foods or supplements. This reduces the risk of neural tube defects and anencephaly during foetal development. » » » » » 6 BANK OF NUTRIENTS »
  6. 6. NATURE’S BOON FRUITS www.sastasundar.com We should try to eat fruits whole rather than cutting them in pieces. Say we can always eat Apple, Banana, Pear, Plum, Strawberry etc. whole rather than cutting them because when we cut them into small pieces, we lose vitamins from the surfaces. The larger the exposed area, more are the nutrients. Of course, large fruits are exceptions to this as you cannot have water melon or papaya as whole. So next time when you take an apple or guava, wash it, chew on it and let the juice flow. Never put the fruits in a juicer because this will lead to loss of nutrients. It is also to be kept in mind that fruits should be washed first followed by cutting. 7 CUTTING ETIQUETTES Eat Whole Fruits

  8. 8. NATURE’S BOON FRUITS www.sastasundar.com First Things First 9 SHUBHASHYA SHIGHRAM The best time to eat fruits is first thing in the morning after a glass of water. Eating fruits right after a meal is not a great idea, as it may not be digested properly. The nutrients may not be absorbed properly either. You need to leave a gap of at least 30 minutes between a meal and a fruit snack. Ideally, one should eat fruits an hour before the meal or two hours after, if they have diabetes or any other digestive problem like acidity. This is because, sometimes, diabetes is accompanied with digestive problems.
