When it comes to fruits and veggies, there really isn’t one that I don’t like. We love to eat them whole, juice them at Joni Juice, cook with them, you name it! Here are some of my favorites: 1. Cherries Rich in antioxidants which helps to prevent and repair cell damage. Polyphenols found in cherries are known to act as an anti-inflammatory and can help with chronic flare ups of gout, arthritis, fibromyalgia and relieves muscle and joint soreness. Get them while you can as the season for fresh cherries is short! Also rich in dietary fiber for regularity. 2. Lemons I squeeze fresh lemon in warm water because of its alkalizing affect on the body and helps to neutralize toxic buildup. It is an excellent source of vitamin C to boost the immune system, and has antioxidant and anti-cancer properties. Also it’s an Ayurvedic practice, sets the day up for success for healthy eating, and the fresh smell of lemon lifts the senses. 3. Mango This juicy and delicious tropical fruit has sweet and tangy flavor. High in vitamin C and promotes collagen formation for healthy skin. 4. Banana The creamy and sweet texture and helps to keep energy levels steady, I love to top my oatmeal with this for breakfast and banana is a great source of potassium. 5. Lychee Used for its medicinal properties in China, can relieve abdominal pain and inflammation. This deliciously exotic fruit bursts with lots of sweet and juicy flavor. Lychee offers many nutritional benefits as they are high in antioxidants and fiber. 6. Watermelon High in lycopene, this fruit helps improve blood flow and promotes cardiovascular health. It’s a very good source of vitamin C, and provides anti-inflammatory and antioxidant support. There’s nothing better on a hot summer day and super hydrating. 7. Avocado Deliciously creamy and versatile. A true treat from nature as it contains a variety of phytonutrients to help with inflammation which is believed to be the root cause of disease and also supports cardiovascular health. 8. Pineapple Juicy and sweet, this tropical fruit contains the enzyme bromelain which promotes healing if undergoing surgery as it reduces swelling and aids in digestion. It’s also an excellent source of vitamin C. 9. Berries Blackberries, raspberries, strawberries and blueberries are loaded with antioxidants to prevent cell damage and ward off disease. 10. Oranges Excellent source of vitamin C and fiber. Drinking a glass of fresh orange juice a day is said to prevent kidney stones, lowers your risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis, can prevent ulcers and reduce the risk of developing stomach cancer (as published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition).
