Best tips to eat more fruit

There are plenty of ways to add more fruit to your everyday eating habits. Here you have a few tips to get you started:
  • If you see it, you fancy it! 
    • Refrigerate cut-up fruit to store for later.
    • Keep a bowl of whole fruit on the table, counter, or in the refrigerator.
  • Swap sugary snacks, such as biscuits, for fruit. As a snack, eat cheese with grapes, the best food combination ever! (after the combination of melon with Serrano ham, of course...).
  • Make fruit kabobs using bananas, pears, apples, pineapple chunks, grapes, strawberries, etc.
  • Grill pineapple and add it to your sandwiches, you´ll love it!
  • Top your pizza with pineapple or apples.
  • Top yogurt with fruits such as berries, kiwi, banana... with frozen yogurt is even nicer!
  • Frozen juice bars (100% juice) make healthy alternatives to high-fat snacks.
  • Many fruits taste great with a dip or dressing. Try low-fat yogurt or pudding as a dip for fruits. Spread peanut butter on apple slices, it´s really delicious.
  • Make a healthy smoothie by blending low-fat milk or yogurt with fresh or frozen fruit. 
  • To make fruit salads, mix apples, bananas, or pears with acidic fruits like oranges, pineapple, or lemon juice to keep them from turning brown.
  • Pack a tangerine, banana, or grapes to eat for lunch, or choose fruit from the salad bar.
  • Try meat dishes that incorporate fruit, such as chicken with apple, oranges, or mango chutney.
  • Snack on an apple, banana, or strawberries.
  • Add a fruit to your breakfast. Top your cereal, porridge or yogurt with bananas, berries or your favorite fruits.
  • For dessert, focus on fruit by having baked apples, pears, or a fresh fruit salad. 
  • Bring a piece of fruit to work. Placing the fruit on your desk will remind you of the reward that awaits you after a hard days work.
  • Although It´s preferably to eat fresh fruit, you can also eat canned fruit, but choose the ones which are in juice rather than in sugary syrup.
