Khalil Gibran, one of the most famous poets that the world will ever have, had once quoted that “Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit.” Now-a-days, a day without fruits is incomplete because we miss out on the many nutrients that are found in fruits! Fruits are delicious, appealing to the eye, have hardly any bad fats and carbohydrates but have a lot of juice and minerals. Fruit gift baskets make for a welcome change from the traditional and often predictable gifts too!
So, if you are about to make your own gift basket for that special someone with your own hands, you should know which of the fruits are the best options for you. This blog is going to talk about the most popular fruits that are liked by people all around the world and not just in a particular country.
- Strawberries – These little red, soft, sweet and utterly juicy fruits are great to look at and are so delicious that you can just pop them one by one in your mouth or made even more delicious with a fruit salad or with cream. Nutrition-wise, these are great because they have plenty of anti-oxidants which help in the fight against ageing and to beat cancer.
- Blueberries – If you are looking for fruits that are great in taste, have a lot of minerals and can be enjoyed by people who may be diabetic too, then your stop would end right here! Blueberries are great in taste, anti-oxidants but have very low sugar contents, thus making them perfect treats for people suffering from diabetes too.
- Watermelons – Bigger in size than most fruits but completely colourful and very delicious, watermelons are the perfect choice when it comes to hot, summer afternoons. Whether you want to slice and enjoy them directly, or you want to make juice out of them, watermelons taste great either way. If you want to make them even more interesting, you could sprinkle a little bit of salt and pepper on the slices and then dig into them! It is also said that although this fruit has high levels of sugar, it is helpful to lower blood pressure and sugar levels to some extent. Don’t worry about fats in this fruit because it is almost entirely made up of water!
- Lemons – Abundant in Vitamin C, this citric fruit has a very appealing colour and can be used in a variety of manners. A few drops of lemon squeezed on dishes make them very tasty, lemonades are great after a heavy meal or in the summer, lemon juice is also great for cosmetic and home cleaning purposes! People with digestive problems too can add a little bit of honey and a few drops of lemon juice to a glass of warm water, have it first thing in the morning and see how quickly your water is flushed of all the toxins.
Fruits are great for many reasons and not just for health. They are commonly used in cosmetics and even home-made packs. No wonder gift baskets of fruits are so welcome today!
