Embrace March Madness and nosh on some fresh fruit today!
Ok I realize fruit has nothing to do with basketball.
Just note that FRESH fruit is the name of the game. Not canned fruit, not fruit juice, not fruit packed in syrup or water. FRESH fruit only! All that potassium and cancer fighting phytonutrients will help you bring your A-game.
For most fruits 1 cup is about 1 serving.
Apples, pears and oranges should be about the size of a basketball. Just kidding - a baseball is just right.
Count 10-15 grapes for 1 serving. For fruits that are low sugar like limes and lemons, add these in to your water, squeeze atop salads to bring an extra zing to your dressing.
Choose a variety of color-rich fruits - you know the kinds that stain your fingers - like cherries, elderberries, blackberries, blackcurrants, mulberries, and raspberries, as these are super-packed with antioxidant and anti-cancer powers.
