Truly, is there anything better than fresh fruit, in season? Now that our peach and nectarine season is past (one of my favorite parts of summer), we're into pear season. And oh, are they delectable!
They're such gorgeous, curvy fruit, especially when they're just beginning to develop a blush. I just couldn't resist doing a photo shoot. :)
Oh, and then there are the fresh grapes, cantaloupe, other melons, etc. Yum!
Not only that, but "the researchers also found that people who consumed fruit more often had significantly lower blood pressure."
"This study adds to the growing body of evidence that shows the more fruit and vegetables we eat the better our heart health. Even eating just one more portion a day helped lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, which should give us all that extra incentive." (link)
