Fruit Is My Direct Drive

Fruit is my direct drive! It’s simple, nutritious, colorful… a one hit wonder! It’s powerful and efficient.

It’s a super safe choice if you’re gluten intolerant or have Celiac, and (in its purest form) the best overall thing for your healthy body, besides vegetables. It’s easily accessible while traveling, and an apple in your backpack can get you through some hungry moments when everyone is Dunkin’ their Donuts. 😉

Eating plenty of fruits and veggies gives us the vitamins and minerals we need to feel energized. Just like the plants and trees need the sun, we use these little golden nuggets from the Earth for optimal nourishment. Why go for the gluten-free, fruity pop tart when you can have a handful of blueberries or a delicious slice of watermelon—both chock-full of phytonutrients and digestive benefits!

One of my all time favorite fruits is watermelon… and today, August 3, is National Watermelon Day!

Watermelon is a total superfood; rich with electrolytes like potassium, and vitamins A and C to name a few. This pretty pink fruit is easily accessible in the summer and its fantastic water content helps quench summer thirst. Plus it’s low cal to boot! And while watermelon is already perfect as-is, you can also explore its savory side in a watermelon feta salad, or this refreshing basil watermelon cooler.

Fruit is your direct drive 
It’ll make you strong and feel alive 

Orange slices in your iced tea 
Nothing fancy
Just you and me 
Going all out healthy 

Summer breeze and citrus scents
Your body isn’t something you rent 
You own it, so give it all that nature presents

Bliss, beautiful, and divine 
On many fruits you should dine

Put fruit on your list 
And you can’t miss
Your life will be eternal bliss

Choose your faves, load up the fridge, and make fruit your go-to food! Leave apples and avocados on the counter so you see them and go for that for a snack first. 🍉
