If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably heard me say, “grown women eat fruits & veggies” and I know it seems crazy! But you won’t believe how many clients and non-clients I meet who don’t like ANY fruits or veggies! Now, this is a sentiment I expect from a 2-year-old, but I am always surprised when grown women share this, and really, really mean it! SO as yall get cozy into pumpkin season and Fall into Fitness with FitsLana I’d like to share a little bit about Fall’s
Stone Fruit Season: Stone fruits are those fruits that have a pit or stone in the center of their flesh. Stone fruits typically have thin skins, either fuzzy or smooth.
All the peaches are high in copper, manganese, and vitamins E & K. The fuzzy skin may contain up to 27 times more antioxidants than thE inside of the fruit.
Nectarines are cousins to peaches just with smoother, more firmer skin. You’ll find you can use nectarines and peaches interchangeably in most recipes.
Mangos are also one of my favorites fruits,especially with tajin. Mangos are full of antioxidants, fiber, minerals, and vitamins C and E.
Plums have been my favorite fruit since I was a child, and these little beauties are high in vitamins C, A, K, fiber, and anti-inflammatory antioxidants. If you can stomach prunes (dried plums) they also provide similar doses of nutrients.
Last but definitely not least, are cherries, are a good source of copper, magnesium, vitamins B6, K, & powerful antioxidants. I’m a big fan of Bing Cherries but Rainer Cherries are equally yummy.
So now you know what should be perfect for the picking, so head over to the market & commit to 1-2 of these Stone Fruits for this weeks snacks... Let me know which fruit you choose either via email or social media!!
