Section 2: Fruits
This amazing little superfruit contain all essential amino acids, contains natural anti-fungal compounds, it's anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and also they have the highest concentration of protein of any fruit.

Bananas are good at handling depression, they make you smarter, relieve morning sickness, hangovers, and protects against several diseases like kidney cancer, osteoporosis, blindness and diabetes.

Grapes are of great medicinal value. They are found effective in curing asthma, migraine, fatigue, indigestion, and kidney disease. They also have anticancer and antibacterial properties.

Eating an apple before starting your workout will help boost your exercise endurance. Apples contain an antioxidant called quercetin, which is effective in boosting endurance by making the oxygen more readily available to the lungs.

Section 3: Veggies

The evil looking chili is a gnarled, lumpy pod with a small tail reminiscent of a wasp’s stinger, and looks as if it’s a carefully crafted marketing scheme.

Tomatoes are a versatile food that is available in thousands of different varieties that vary in shape, size and color like the bright yellow tomato, small cherry tomato, green tomato and Italian pear-shaped tomato.

Potatoes have a bad rep in the food world, but there is nothing inherently unhealthy about this nutritious food, it actually has much to boast about. Potatoes are quite filling, low in calorie and are non-fattening. Above all it contributes to healthy eating. Potatoes are a nutrient dense food, at only 100 calories per spud; they are incredibly packed with Vitamins and minerals. In fact they have more Vitamin C than oranges and tomatoes.


If you have always thought citrus fruits were packed with a powerful punch of vitamin C, peppers have them beat, especially the green pepper.


You don't have to fiddle around with juicers and peelers to enjoy this great juicy vegetable experience. You just have to lift it up and chew. Your body does the rest of the hard work on its own, like further breaking it down and digesting. That means your body has to spend extra calories to digest it.
