Fresh and whole foods contain all of the vitamins and minerals needed, not to mention they taste amazing. When it comes to delicious food, few things are tastier than fresh fruit bursting with colors and exploding with flavors both sweet and tart. Fruits also contain important vitamins such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C and members of the B vitamin family.
While some fruits are more nutritious than others, blending fruits such as bananas, berries and peaches together into smoothie or juice form can create a powerful cocktail of antioxidants that you won't get from eating just one piece of fruit.
