WAYS TO BOOST YOUR FRUIT INTAKE
1. Try to incorporate fruit into your breakfast each day. Top cereal/muesli/porridge with sliced banana, peaches, nectarines, mango, strawberries or frozen berries (basically whatever is in season). And if you're having something a little more indulgent such as pancakes, try making a fruit platter to accompany.
Make fruit smoothies as a filling breakfast, afternoon snack or whenever! Lately I've been making smoothies when I come back from running and feel like something refreshing and filling. Mine usually have oat milk, frozen berries (so much cheaper than fresh berries!), peach, bananas and a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar.
3. Eat fruit for dessert. Craving something sweet and sugary after dinner? Why not make these cinnamon roast peaches, grill bananas with maple syrup and cinnamon, or create a simple fruit salad/platter. According to Chinese medicine the best time to eat fruit is in the evening.
4. Bake with fruit. Make baking that little bit healthier by trying things like banana bread or berry muffins
5. Grow your own. There's nothing more satisfying than picking your own strawberries or other fruits! They're super sweet and (in my opinion) way more delicious than store bought fruit.
