We write a lot about how eating fruit is so good for you and boosts your immune system. Now, it’s time to take a look at which fruits are the absolute healthiest. It’s important to look at the amount of sugar and carbs every type of fruit contains. It’s recommended to eat two pieces of fruit a day, but which fruits should you choose?
Did your favourite fruit make the list?
Let’s start with number 10: oranges. This is mostly because of the small number of calories this orange fruit full of vitamins contains. One big orange contains 61 calories on average. The fruit is chock full of vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin B and C and calcium.
Spot number 9 goes to the tropical mango. On average, there are 135 calories in one big mango. It is good to know that, no matter how healthy this sweet fruit is, it also contains quite a lot of sugar. That’s why it’s best to eat this delicious fruit in moderation. Eating one big mango does mean you get your recommended daily dose of vitamin C, though, which is a big advantage.
A kiwifruit is a bit smaller than a lot of other fruits, of course, but that also means it contains a lot fewer calories. One kiwi contains 46 calories on average. The kiwi deserves its eighth spot due to its high amount of vitamin C and fibres. Having trouble with your bowel movement? Try eating this green fruit on an empty stomach before breakfast.
Cherries aren’t just absolutely delicious, they’re also very healthy! One serving of cherries contains 84 calories on average. Multiple studies have shown that cherries are good for your heart. Plus, eating cherries diminishes the chance of getting cancer, because of the perillyl alcohol they contain.
A big grapefruit only contains 78 calories on average. Plus, the tasty, bitter fruit is full of vitamins C, B1 and A and rich in potassium. Enough reasons to buy a grapefruit on your next visit to the supermarket!
