Between meetings and the rush to run errands at lunch time, getting your five-a-day can feel like a huge challenge. Getting a fruit basket delivered with a range of fruit and using this fruit wisely can make all the difference, and make getting that five-a-day a tad easier.
To help use your fruit wisely we’ve put together a selection of non-cook recipes – meaning all the good stuff, the fibre and vitamins, remains in your fruit and that morning meeting with the telephone company becomes a little bit easier.
The simplest way to boost your five-a-day intake is through a berry-tastic brekkie. A mix of blueberries, raspberries and strawberries offers a range of anti-oxidants and vitamins. The perfect way to push you through the morning rush hour!
One pear offers a quarter of your recommend daily amount of fibre and is the perfect pick me up for an 11 o’clock treat. This fruit delivery favourite can also be added to a slice of rye bread with almond butter for an extra, healthy, boost.
At just 86 calories, oranges are the perfect accompaniment to lunch. The staple of any fruit box, they offer vitamin C, lower cholesterol and picking them when ripe (as we do!) means they’re juicy and hydrating as well. The perfect remedy for a half hour queue in the post office!
Grapefruits can improve an immune system to protect against everything from the winter sniffles to heart disease. Pink and red grapefruits also offer 35 times more anti oxidants than paler grapefruits, and eating the segments of the grapefruit as a whole (like you would our orange friends!) offers 50% more fibre than spooning it out of the skin to save on the washing up – half a grapefruit has just 53 calories!
Frozen Grape & Kiwi
Freezing your seasonal fruit brings out its sweetness, a grape and kiwi mix is a great way to make the most of this. The coldness of the fruit will also stop you chomping through the entire pack in one go! A great after dinner treat.
