Canadians know that it is important to eat a varied diet that includes fresh fruits and vegetables, and fortunately, Walmart.ca makes shopping for groceries easier. With online ordering and pickup available at select locations, you can save time and money by shopping from the comfort of your home. No matter what your grocery budget looks like, you can shop with confidence at Walmart Canada.
According to the Canadian Food Guide, the average Canadian should be eating between 7 to 10 servings of fruits per day, but as many people are busy balancing hectic work and life schedules, healthy food options are often skipped in favour of fast food. From tropical fruits to apples and bananas, to dried fruits that have a longer shelf life, there are many healthy and delicious fruit to pick from.
You can also choose from a variety of stone fruit depending on the season and availability, such as peaches, nectarines, plums, cherries and others. Many people also enjoy pairing their favourite fruits with breakfast cereals, which is another way to add fibre to your diet. Slicing up some fruit and adding it directly to your cereal can be a delicious way to add fruit servings to your daily meals.
For some people, eating fruits that are lower in sugar, such as raspberries, strawberries, and blueberries is a good choice. Fruits are often a source of fibre, vitamins, and minerals, so you get to enjoy health benefits in addition to their delicious taste. Citrus fruits, in particular, are a good source of Vitamin C. Be sure to incorporate fruits into your healthy diet plan and keep away from fast foods that are often high in fat, sugar, and salt.
Did you know that you are able to eat the skin of multiple fruits that most people discard? Often, there is a nutritional benefit to eating fruit skins. In particular, the fibre content of the fruit you eat increases if you are also able to eat the skins. Sometimes, the amount of vitamins is higher in the fruit skin than what is inside the fruit. This is particularly true for fleshy fruit like oranges as there is more Vitamin C in the skin of the orange than in the flesh of the fruit. Edible fruit skins include apples, kiwis, strawberry stems, watermelon rinds, lemon peels, and more. Be sure to always thoroughly wash your fruit when you get home and then start eating--some peels included!
Eating healthy foods doesn’t have to be a challenge as all it takes is a little preparation and some knowledge. When people are busy, they often find it easier to make excuses for poor dietary choices. Making good dietary choices can be a cinch when you cook at home and are able to choose from foods that are good for you. And with great prices on household essentials, clothing, entertainment, and more, you can get your shopping done at Walmart Canada and get on with planning the rest of your day.
