7 Fruits You Should Eat At Least Once a Week

23rd June 2020 - by Indre Daukintyte

Eating fruit regularly can boost your overall health. However, not all fruits are created equal. Some of them provide unique health benefits.

Here are the 7 healthiest fruits we’d recommend eating at least a few times a week.

  • Grapefruit

Grapefruit is one of the healthiest citrus fruits. Besides being a good source of vitamins and minerals, it is known for its ability to aid weight loss and reduce insulin resistance. 

  • Avocado 

Avocado is different from most other fruits. Most fruits are high in carbs, while avocado is the opposite and has mainly just healthy fats. Besides that, these healthy fats contribute a lot to better heart health and regulate insulin levels. Because of higher fiber concentration, it makes you feel more full after each meal. 

Important! Avocados are high in calories, so it is important to control the quantity of it. 

  • Blueberries

Blueberries are powerful antioxidants. The antioxidants in blueberries may reduce the risk of chronic conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s. Blueberries are also known for their powerful effects on the immune system. One study found that eating blueberries regularly may help defend you against viral infections. Besides all these powerful benefits on the immune system and disease prevention, these berries also contain high levels of fiber, vitamin C, and vitamin K. 

  • Apples

Apples are among the most nutritious fruits on the planet. They contain a high amount of fiber, vitamin C, potassium, and vitamin K. They also provide some B vitamins. The phrase “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” is true for preventing heart disease and reducing the risk of other illnesses like type 2 diabetes, cancer, and Alzheimer’s. 

  • Strawberries

One of the spring-summer joys are Strawberries that happen to be also highly nutritious. However, compared to other fruits, strawberries have a relatively low glycemic index. Eating them shouldn’t cause a big blood sugar spike. Similar to other berries, strawberries are also antioxidant “bomb,” which can reduce your risk of chronic disease.

  • Watermelon

Malta is full of watermelons in the summertime. Watermelons have high in vitamins A and C. It’s also rich in some essential antioxidants, including lycopene, carotenoids, and cucurbitacin E. Compared with all the fruits, watermelon is one of the most hydrating fruits out there. Over 90% of all watermelon consists of water, which can help you feel more full. Therefore we’d recommend limiting watermelons consumption as it has high levels of sugar, which, if consumed too much, can gain you fat.

  • Oranges

Eating one medium-sized orange will provide a significant amount of vitamin C and potassium. However, oranges are also responsible for most of the health benefits. For example, citric acid may reduce the risk of kidney stones, help increase iron absorption, and prevent anemia.
