I'm a big fan of Strawberries & Bananas :)
I eat fruit & veggies everyday but this awesome duo appears more often the most.
Bananas Provide Energy! Because of the abundance of vitamins and minerals, bananas are a great source of natural energy. Eating only two bananas will give you enough energy to exercise or workout for an hour and a half. Bananas are also ideal for eating during that midday lull when you feel tired and sluggish.
Strawberriesare an excellent source of insoluble fiber, strawberries promote satiation, a plus when trying to maintain or lose weight. Also, strawberries are very low in calories, with only 49 calories per one cup serving of strawberry halves.
Studies have shown that a diet high in fruit can help prevent many of the symptoms of diseases like Alzheimer's disease and other deteriorating conditions of the brain.
The benefits of fruit are so well accepted that the USDA recommends at least five servings a day of fruit in your diet.
(Keep in mind) The facts listed are only very few of many benefits to each fruit, so eat up!
I guess with that being said I stay healthy & fight off harm from my brain on a daily. xD I had some water as well with my meal :)
