The best way to start your day is by eating fruit, and naturally cleanse your whole system, by removing all the waste material from the day before, and also be provided with natural sugar- fructose and glucose that will balance your blood sugar for the day.
In fact, your breakfast should be a fruit mix that will kick start your metabolism, boost your energy and provide your body with nutrients.
Why should you mix different fruits instead of eating just a single piece?
When you combine certain fruits you also combine the energy of the fruits which is called synergy. Therefore, the benefits that your body will get from a single banana compared to the benefits from a whole range of fruits differ in the variety of nutrients and also in the effect they have on your system. It is important for your body to get the right nutrients and therefore create balance in your system, which you will definitely get from our fruit salad.

Why should I use these fruits and how will my body benefit from them?
Blackberry– Because of its black color, blackberries have very powerful antioxidant properties which successfully fight cancer, inflammation and diarrhea and keep your brain healthy.
Kiwi– This low calorie fruit will make your skin beautiful, because it is rich in vitamin C and protects your skin from wrinkles, acne and other damages. It is great to incorporate it in your fruit salad because it fights constipation, lowers your blood pressure, and because of the fiber and potassium, it will keep your heart healthy.
Strawberry– the fruit everyone loves will boost your immunity, protect your eyes and fight the bad cholesterol.
Banana– Bananas are rich in pectin, aid digestion and detoxify your body from heavy metals. This fruit will help you lose weight and at the same time keep you happy, because of the natural mood-enhancer tryptophan.
Blueberry– One cup of blueberries contains the following nutrients: vitamins C, B6, K, A and E; iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, sodium, manganese, zinc, copper, folate, beta-carotene, potassium and choline.
Pineapple– We included pineapple in our fruit salad because they prevent asthma, improve fertility and fight diabetes.
Orange– Despite being rich in vitamin C, oranges are a part of our fruit salad because of the following quote: “Orange strengthens your emotional body, encouraging a general feeling of joy, well-being, and cheerfulness.” – Tae Yun Kim
Honey– This food which will never go bad or and lasts forever is one of the healthiest, tastiest and beneficial ingredients in our salad, which will boost your energy and memory, as well.
Lime– It has antibiotic and anti-cancer properties and detoxifies your body at the same time.
