Display Fresh Fruit

Research shows we are more likely to eat something if we are visually reminded of it and it looks enticing. So, keep a big bowl of fresh fruit on your kitchen table where these healthy picks are visible and easy to grab. Go for fruit at its peak of season, since it will be freshest and taste best (peaches, plums and nectarines in the summer; apples, pears, and citrus in the winter, and year-round fruit like bananas, mango, and kiwi anytime). The result: You’ll not only consume more health-enhancing antioxidants, you’ll also take in more figure-friendly fiber.
