Winters are here and with it, all the cold winds and breezes have arrived. The variety of foods and fruits you consume changes as per the seasons and thus there will be certain types of fruits that will be available more during the winters and those are the ones you will be having. These fruits are special in the way that they provide those added benefits that you will need during the winters. So, to help you put some amazing fruits in your daily diet we have made a list.
This popular superfruit is known primarily for its high antioxidant levels and its seeds are a good source of omega 6 fatty acids. It is not possible for our body to actually manufacture the omega acids and thus we depend on food to get our daily dose of this essential nutrient. Apart from that, pomegranate is also a good blood cleanser and thus should be consumed daily.
Grapes are a good source of a lot of vitamins and minerals including Vitamin C, Vitamin K, copper and potassium. And they are known to actually cool the excess heat that sometimes gets generated in the stomach. You can have them as much as you want as there is no particular side effect of eating grapes. They also contain a good amount of fibre content which you should have in your daily diet.
Bananas are an excellent natural source of electrolytes magnesium and potassium, which are very important for water absorption in the muscles. Bananas are high on the glycemic scale, ranking an 18 for one whole banana. Thus it is recommended that you have at least 2-3 bananas daily and make it a part of your daily diet.
The outer skin of a pear contains about half of the fibre content and many enzymes that are considered anti-inflammatory and helps reduce chances of cancer. The inner layer too is important and having a pear daily can help reduce the chances of a stroke by more than 50%.
Dates are the sweetest fruits available and yet don’t contain any sugar content as such. Thus they are actually rather healthy to eat and help maintain the core body temperature. They are also known as nature’s candy and can be eaten just like that without any cutting or peeling. Also, they do not require any special storage and can stay good for a very long time.
This rare green fruit has many benefits. It ranks a glycemic scale of 4 and contains 11% of daily fibre, 50% of vitamin K and 141% of vitamin C. Thereby making kiwi one of the most nutritious fruits in the entire variety available.
