Alkalizing Fruit Salad Ingredients
The common apple has uncommonly huge health benefits, and how to best enjoy them. Your mom didn’t use the term superfood but she knew about apples. “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” was the first nutritional advice I and many children heard from their moms. For this reason, we call them “the first superfood.” The apple in this alkalizing fruit salad gives it a sweet crunch.
People are attracted to kiwi fruit because of its brilliant green color and exotic taste. It adds a lovely green colour to the alkalizing fruit salad and deliciousness too. The real uniqueness of kiwi comes from its health benefits which include aiding digestion with its enzymes, helping to manage blood pressure, boost your immunity, and clean out toxins.
This is the fruit that gives the alkalizing fruit salad sweet juiciness. Oranges are a delicious, juicy healthy treat! They are a very healthy superfood as they help fight cancer, fight viral infections, relieve constipation, and much more.
Raspberries are a red sweet juicy delight to see and eat. They keep your metabolic rate high with high levels of the trace mineral manganese and are one of the top 10 antioxidant-rich fruits. They are high in vitamin c and have more fibre than most fruits and vegetables.
Pomegranates truly are a tasty delight in this alkalizing fruit salad with many health benefits. Research has shown that pomegranates can help with many health concerns such as high blood pressure, cancer, helps with memory, and they are even an aphrodisiac.
Cool fresh mint with its stimulating aroma is a popular flavouring for gum, toothpaste, and tea. This superfood is full of many health benefits from helping with digestion to increasing memory. Did you know it helps keep mosquitos away too? I always grow mint in my garden for salads, teas, and smoothies.
As I don’t use sugar for my baking and cooking, I often use stevia which is a healthy option. The stevia plant is incredibly sweet and also incredibly good for you. The leaf is 30 times sweeter than sugar while extracts are 300-400 times sweeter. The alkalizing fruit salad doesn’t need any sweetening, it is the yogurt dressing that does. Therefore the best stevia will be the one that retains some whole food value and is water-based. Liquid forms will be less processed.
