Fruit for Breakfast - The Secret to a Healthy Life


Do you want more energy? How about more of the vitamins, minerals and enzymes that your body craves? Try eating fruit for breakfast! Fresh fruit - apples, grapefruit, strawberries, cherries, oranges, kiwi, melon, and grapes all count. In fact, any fruit works - and there are so many to choose from. Eating fruit for breakfast will get you on the road to having a healthier body right away without having to pump a lot of iron at the gym or take sketchy supplements.

Why diet on fruit for breakfast you ask? Well, to make it simple, fruit in its raw form is exactly what your body needs for energy. It is easy to digest and the sugar from fruit (glucose) is in the form that your body can easily turn into energy. Instead of your body putting a lot of energy towards digestion and turning the food into a useable form of fuel, it is already in an easily digestible form. The energy goes straight to you. Eating nothing but fruit until lunchtime - however much you want, is a sure fire way to lose weight and become more healthy, almost immediately.

How about a glass of juice - is that the same as eating an orange? Not really and here is why. Most juice that you purchase at the grocery store is pasteurized. This means that it is heated to a high temperature to kill any bacteria and make the shelf life longer. During this process of heating, many of the wonderful enzymes in the juice are destroyed. Not to mention that many juices are filled with preservatives and sweeteners and are made from concentrates - not the same as eating a fresh orange to your stomach or body! You're better off with the real thing!

Try making a smoothie - here is a recipe that I find very refreshing.

  • 5 to 6 fresh strawberries
  • 1/3 fresh cantaloupe
  • 1/2 cup of fresh pineapple
  • 1 fresh kiwi (peeled)
  • About 1 cup of orange juice - not from concentrate

Blend all ingredients until smooth - and then enjoy! Making these delicious treats are a healthy way to start the day, improve your health, and lose weight!

If you're not sure about eating fruit for breakfast - try it and see how wonderful you feel. If you aren't convinced, eat a normal breakfast - eggs, pancakes, or a bowl of cereal and see how you feel after eating fruit for a week. It will probably shock you with how tired and lethargic this food makes you feel in the mornings. So, get your metabolism started the right way in the morning - enjoy a bowl of fresh fruit and start to feel better the old-fashioned way! Bon Appetite!
