Eating fruits has to be one of the healthiest eating habits there is. But some people have some difficulty choosing. What are your options? What should you or not have? In this article, we help you with the 5 healthiest fruits to try out this season.

1. Watermelons

Watermelons are both juicy and nutritious. Definitely recommended on hot days when you need some hydration. Watermelon is 95 percent water. Isn’t that amazing? It also contains potassium and magnesium. Potassium is such an important element when it comes to maintaining the electrolyte balance of the body. 

Have watermelons, whichever way you want them, in your fruit salads. In your deserts, whichever way you like it. The fun part about dieting is being creative. So, get creative!

2. Mangoes

Mangoes are quite sweet. Even though they contain high amounts of carbohydrates, they are very healthy, as they are loaded with vitamin C, potassium, and an antioxidant known as beta-carotene. 

This antioxidant is also seen in carrots and has an impact on mopping free radicals out of cells. 

Free radicals are basically reactive species that can change the morphology of cells, resulting in cancers. Moping them out is, therefore, a vital step in cancer prevention. 

You can have mango juice if you do not like to eat the fruit whole. Just be sure to blend it right. Have fun. (Read: 5 High Fiber Foods for Healthy Gut)

3. Bananas

When it comes to fiber, few fruits stand toe-to-toe, or rather fruit-to-fruit with bananas. One banana contains fiber, as well as vitamin B6, and even vitamin C. 

A slice of banana on your oatmeal for breakfast is a great recipe you should try out. Some people love banana juice. Perhaps, you should try it out. 

Include bananas in your salads as well. 

If you notice any disturbance in your tummy after having bananas, you should consult your doctor as that may be a reaction against it. (Read: 6 Healthiest Cooking Oils (And 5 Oils To Avoid))

4. Apples

Ever heard the saying that an apple a day keeps the doctor away? This is because apples are literally a storehouse of nutrients and one of the healthiest fruits you should be eating this season. 

One apple contains vitamins, potassium, magnesium, and a number of antioxidants. 

I am particular about the antioxidants contained in apples because they seem to be very potent in preventing chronic inflammation and cancers. 

What’s more, apples taste very good and can be tried out in ways. You can have apples with yogurt and even nuts.
