Wednesday Morning Meal Ritual
Thanks to Dr. Anna the staff at Smile Designers enjoys a delicious Wednesday morning ritual.
It seems like everywhere you look you can find something talking about the benefits of eating fruit. On Wednesday mornings our staff comes together to prepare for our day and reap the spoils of fresh summer fruits. Not only are they delicious, but each fruit has its own certain vitamins and minerals that assist in improving certain aspects of our health.
Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C, potassium, fiber and antioxidants. The list is long on the benefits but did you know that vitamin C improves elasticity of your skin? Can I get a big cheer for fewer wrinkles?
Blackberries are also a good source of vitamin C, as well as vitamin K and antioxidants. A cup of blackberries makes for the recommended daily amount of fiber, assisting in healthy digestion.
Cantaloupe being rich in potassium, snacking on it can normalize our heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain, leaving you relaxed and focused.
Watermelons are full of potassium, antioxidants, carotenoids, carbohydrates, Vitamin A, B6 and C, calcium, thiamin, sodium, healthy protein and fiber. A few slices a day can help prevent heart attacks and diseases, different types of cancer, digestive problems, poor eye sight, and hair loss. With all those benefits we should be eating watermelon every day.
