Well berries like blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries are always on the “superfood” lists.
Pomegranates are full of antioxidants, oranges obviously are full of Vit C, and watermelon is a natural diuretic, the list goes on and on.
When you are eating fruits and veggies you can’t go wrong. Just cut the bad food out of your diet and you will see an immense change.
Fresh fruits tend to be healthier than canned fruits because they aren’t packed in sugar syrup. The best ones have a lot of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Some good ones include guava (high fiber, Vitamin C, carotenoids) and watermelon (fiber, Vitamin C, carotenoids, potassium).
The saying “An apple a day, keeps the doctor away!” still rings true. All fruits are very healthy and provide various nutrients that our bodies need to function and remain in the best possible health. The top ten fruits as listed by HeathMad include: Apples, apricots, bananas, blackberries, blueberries, muskmelon, cherries, kiwi, grapefruit, and purple grapes.

Lemons and limes.
“why lemons and limes should be part of your healthiest way of eating” – The World’s Healthiest Foods, by George Mateljan
Lemons and Limes are rich in flavanoids with antioxidant properties and enhance heart health. They provide high concentrations of Vitamin C, and are low in calories (15 cal in 1/4 cup of lemon juice).
They are easily integrated into almost any dish and accentuate the flavors you’re already using. It’s an easy way to get the nutrients you need! Note: juicing a lemon and room temperature will maximize the amount of juice it provides.
There are a few standby rules when considering what kind of fruits to get at the supermarket. Any fresh fruit tends to be superior to canned fruit. Canned fruits usually have sugar syrup, and even when packed, it often is peeled resulting in less healthful fruit servings. Guavas are considered one of the healthiest fruits available. Guava is low in calories, high in fiber, and contains high amounts of vitamin C and carotenoids.
Another very healthy fruit is watermelon. Watermelons are low in calories, contain 100 percent of the US Department of Agriculture’s recommended values of carotenoids and vitamin C and about a quarter of the USDA’s recommendations for dietary fiber and potassium.
Fruits in the berry category have the highest fiber, so a person looking for more fiber in their diet should look into fruits like raspberries and blackberries. For potassium, kiwis papaya and bananas contain the highest amount of that nutrient.
