For those who prefer the exotic over the everyday, the mango is a nice alternative to the more popular fruits like apples, oranges, and grapes.
Mangoes are sweet and fragrant, with an interesting consistency that people tend to enjoy. They are best when eaten super ripe, to get that softer texture that almost melts in your mouth. They can be a bit fibrous, however.
Mangos are delicious diced and eaten on their own or added to fruit salads and light dishes. They can also be incorporated into smoothies for a tropical sensation sip by sip.
They say, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away,” and the popular sentiment has tangible truth behind it. Not only are apples delicious, but they are a staple of a well-balanced diet, filled with feel-good flavor. There are many varieties of apples, including Granny Smith, Red and Golden Delicious, Cortland, Fuji, Gala, Macintosh, Honeycrisp, Pink Lady, Lemonade Apples, McIntosh, and more.
