Eating This Type Of Fruit Each Day Can Make A Big Health Difference

An apple a day keeps the doctor away. That's how the saying goes anyway. But where did that notion come from, and why has it never really been coined for another fruit? Well, according to The Washington Post, the phrase started as, "Eat an apple on going to bed, and you'll keep the doctor from earning his bread." It's a simple saying that means what it states: Apples' ability to lower cholesterol and help prevent strokes, among other things, makes it a healthy daily snack.

And some might think if an apple a day keeps the doctor away, why would you even need to think of any other fruit for your health? According to The Healthy, it wasn't because apples are the most healthy, but rather to emphasize that it was healthier to consume apples in their natural form rather than drinking cider (which happened to be an issue during Prohibition). With that in mind, it might be time to set your fruity sights on some other options — one, in particular, has been shown to have some pretty major health benefits to rival everyone's favorite.

Opt for a handful of these celebrity and personal trainer-approved fruits

Lauren Seib, a health influencer and personal trainer thinks people might be overlooking a berry important nutrient powerhouse — berries! She wrote a piece for Food Network spilling the details on what she buys at the grocery store, and boy is she a fan of those tiny fruits. Boasting a full slate of vitamins B, C, and K, Seib notes that they can help boost your brainpower, prevent cell damage, and reduce inflammation. And if you're not sold by that — berries alone may not be the most tempting for some — her recipe might do it for you. She suggests "unsweetened vanilla yogurt topped with 1/2 cup of mixed berries, 1 tablespoon of walnuts, and 1 tablespoon goji berries" for a tasty, yet healthy bite to eat.

She makes a compelling argument and snack, and even Lizzo agrees! For her new vegan diet (via Women's Health), the singer has taken to Nature's Cereal, which is a combination of berries, pomegranate seeds, and ice cubes in a bowl with coconut water to serve as the "milk." Since then the trend has truly taken off (just take a peek at TikTok). With berries, you've got the health benefits and the peer pressure, so what are you waiting for?
