of that cup of coffee and possibly a sweet roll for your breakfast,
what's a good pick-up in the morning? What would be a real
good way to start the day? Did you know that fresh fruit is
a real good pick-up?
So, what kind of fruit would be good to start the day? Any
of your favorite fruits that's in season and can grow where
you are at the time. Now, if you're in an area where fruit
is not grown, eat the kind of fruit that will ripen after
it's picked. Practically all fruit is picked green to ship
and most fruits will not ripen after they're picked, rendering
little or no value to you whatsoever.
are a few fruits that will ripen after they're picked: Golden
Delicious apples; apricots; bananas; guava; mangoes (- yummm);
papaya; pears; persimmons; pineapples; plums; pomegranates;
avocados; and cactus fruit.
fruits which will not ripen after they're picked are all the
apples, except the golden delicious; all berries; cherries;
citrus fruit; figs; grapes; melons; nectarines and peaches.
you still want to have a cup of coffee during the day, have
it around 2:30 or 3:00 pm. Maybe once or twice a week, instead
of the coffee and donuts / sweet rolls or colas and candy
bars, try your favorite fruit. This will be a quantum leap
for your nutrition education and your body will reward you
highly for it.
and eggs and those type of foods, are protein foods which
are designed primarily for repair and not for energy. Fruit
usually takes about 1- hours to digest and they are already
in an energy form. The protein foods will take as much as
4-6 hours to break down into the repair/building nutrients.
Then it will take several more hours to convert them into
an energy source. So, logically speaking, since we need energy
at the beginning and throughout the day, it would be a good
idea to start the day with something like fruit. Save the
protein foods for a better time of day. We'll discuss protein
foods in a later "voices of experience" tape.
