Friday Five: Favorite Summer Fruit

Friday Five-Favorite merIt’s Friday! It’s been a while since I’ve linked up with Eat Pray Run DCYou Signed Up for What?! and Mar on the Run for their Friday Five Linkup. I’ve been busy working, getting workouts in, and catching up on tv shows 😛 but I’ve decided to link up again. This week’s theme is – Five Favorite Summer Fruits/Veggies. I love fruit! Here are my five favorite Summer fruit.

1. Watermelon. You gotta love watermelon during the Summer. It’s made up of mostly water, ~92% so eating it is a great way to stay hydrated. I love the sweet taste of cold watermelon when it’s hot out! I’ve even been in a race that handed out watermelon which was nice. Watermelon has great levels of  vitamins A, C, and B6. It is also rich in Lycopene, an antioxidant that helps protect against disease.2. Mangoes.  I love eating them plain or in smoothies. Mangoes are a great tasting fruit that are rich in fiber. They also are high in vitamins C and A.3. Strawberries. I love ripe strawberries. They’re great plain, in smoothies, or as a topping. I remember when I was younger we would even dip them in sugar :P. Strawberries are rich in vitamin C, fiber, and antioxidants.4. Blueberries. I love blueberries plain or as a topping in yogurt/frozen yogurt. Blueberries rank high in antioxidants and are rich in fiber and vitamins C and K.5. Cherries. Cherries are great in the Summer! I remember eating them a lot at get togethers especially when I was younger. There are many different varieties. I like Bing cherries and the yellow Rainier cherries. Cherries are packed with antioxidants and so like the other fruit are very healthy.

What are your favorite Summer fruits? Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  1. I had forgot about cherries. Watermelon is kinda like the unofficial Summer fruit for most people, but I’m not too crazy about it or any melon for that matter. I’m an oddball.
