A meal of fruit is quite healthy, especially if you fill it with fruits that have major nutrients, like protein, fiber, or good fats so that the inevitable fruit sugar spike will be slower as your body works to digest the other nutrients. Looking for the fruit with the lowest sugar content, turn to berries. And while most fruits are healthy, some are extraordinary, such as Pitaya (dragonfruit). This tropical fruit with the unusual pink hue and spiky shape contains high amounts of vitamin C, vitamin B1, B2, and B3. It is also rich in many important minerals as iron, calcium, phosphorus. And though many people know the fruit for its stunning color, it’s not as clear that the seeds themselves are full of good stuff that fights bad cholesterol.
