Love your body! Eat fruit for Breakfast!

The best way to start your day and love your body, is to eat fruit for breakfast!  Your body has been sleeping and recovering from the day before. You awake renewed with an empty stomach and typically haven't eaten for a few hours. The first thing you put into your body should be something that revitalizes your systems. 

When we eat fruit on an empty stomach, the digestive system breaks down the sugars in the fruit quickly and allows us to get the full nutritional benefits. Fruit is a great source of fiber, nutrients like vitamin C, and offers antioxidants that can reduce inflammation in the body. Eating fruit on an empty stomach can allow us to take in as many as these benefits as possible. 

Fruit should be eaten alone without any fat or protein with it because it slows down the digestive process and how the sugars in fruit are broken down. When you eat fruit alone it digests super quickly and the body uses the sugars immediately! 

Show your body some love and feed it fruit first thing in the morning!
