Fruit: A Healthy Choice

My sister shared the following:
From Dr. Weil

Fresh fruit salad is a traditional, healthy dessert. Not only delicious, it is nutritious, too - the natural antioxidants and fiber of fresh fruit support the body's defenses and help to keep it running smoothly. When making a fruit salad, consider including the following choices - according to the USDA, these fruits are exceptionally high in antioxidants:

1. Wild blueberries
2. Cranberries
3. Blackberries
4. Prunes
5. Raspberries
6. Strawberries
7. Red delicious apples
8. Granny Smith apples
9. Sweet cherries
10. Black plums

Look for organic varieties at your local farmer's market, and enjoy!
