Making Healthy Homemade Fruit Salad

Posted by javanuddin on Sunday, March 4, 2012

No one can ignore the great taste of fruit salad since it can also make our body healthy. Making healthy fruit salad is one thing, as you should consider several aspects to make it really beneficial.

In a hot day, making a big bowl of fresh salad will be nice. Imagining fresh fruits mixed with mayonnaise probably makes you hungry now. You do not need to be an expert to make delicious and healthy fruit salad. You only have to be more creative, especially in choosing the fruits. Remember that you are going to make healthy food for your family, so you should choose the best ingredients.

A bowl of salad gives you nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, water content, and (of course) dietary fiber. Women like it because it helps lose weight, since it contains low fat and increases the quality of digestive system. In short, it fulfills hunger without making fat.

When choosing fruits, you should choose ones which are totally ripe and ready to consume. You better cook them with the outer skins since the skins contain rich nutrients that are good for diet. Of course, you cannot do the same to bananas or oranges.

Combine some fruits to get maximum nutrients! For example, oranges are high in vitamin C, but low in other nutrients. This will be good to add apples, grapes, or pears to complete the nutrients. As a suggestion, try to avoid tender fruit as it can get mashed easily by the time you mix your salad. Use this kind of fruit only as topping.

You may think that you will make a bowl of salad then keep it in fridge. It is not recommended! After fruits are cut, they tend to oxidize. To get the best beneficial, consume it right after you make it. Avoid making too much salad in order to prevent storing it in fridge.

Try to use yogurt instead of mayonnaise to mix the fruits. Yogurt is much better, especially if you really need some foods to make your digestive system runs well.
