7 Super-Healthy Fruits When You Need A Pick-Me-Up

Whether you’re looking for an immunity boost or simply want a snack that’s equally delicious and nutritious, fruit is here to help. That being said, there are some fruits that offer a better nutritional profile than others. Use this list to find which fruits have a health profile that would make a nutritionist blush.

Grapefruit

Taken as a whole, grapefruit is easily one of the most nutritious fruits in existence. It’s an amazing source of vitamins and minerals but perhaps even more impressively, grapefruit can actually help you lose weight. On top of that, a single grapefruit offers 100% of your daily dose of vitamin C.

Blueberries

Most berries are super healthy, but blueberries are the king of them all. Along with being great sources of fiber and vitamin C, blueberries have an extremely high antioxidant count, with some experts claiming that they have more antioxidants than every other fruit and veggie!

Avocados

Sure, avocados are excellent sources of vitamin E and potassium, but it’s their high monounsaturated fat content that gets us excited. Commonly referred to as “the good kind of fat,” monounsaturated fat actually helps lower cholesterol and fights against certain types of cancers!

Lemons

Lemons are a good option when you need to add a nutritional boost to a dish that doesn’t spotlight fruit. Similar to oranges, lemons are an awesome source of vitamin C, with a single lemon offering nearly 140% of your daily dose. On top of that, lemons are packed with folic acid, which helps improve your overall cardiovascular health. 

Apples

An apple a day really could keep the doctor away! Their low calorie/high water content makes them filling and healthy, plus each apple has 15% of your recommended daily dose of fiber. We think apples are so healthy that we even wrote an article about it.

Kiwi

Kiwis are an amazing source of fiber, which helps reduce discomfort and keep your gut healthy. The sweet fruit has more to offer however; every kiwi is loaded with immunity boosting vitamin C. Besides, doesn’t everyone love kiwi anyway?

Pineapple

This fruit rolls with an exclusive crew. Seriously, pineapples are the only fruit that contains the enzyme bromelain, which helps you fight diabetes and lung cancer. We’re fond of pineapples because of their versatility too; you can add them to healthy smoothies, spicy salsa, and Hawaiian burgers without breaking a sweat.

  • Pro Tip: Make sure your pineapples stay fresh with these tips.
