A Different Fruit A Day
Personal Health Challenge

This seems the era of challenges. Oma decided to do a challenge for fitness. Oma dared herself to consume and photograph one different fruit every day for the month of September. Many do not know the difference between a fruit and a vegetable; nor the benefits of eating fruits. 

Jimbo’s Local and Organic Produce - freshness and quality, and minimizing the carbon footprint.
Local and Organic - Once harvested, the produce is usually delivered
directly to theJimbo’s stores, thereby maximizing freshness and quality,
and minimizing the carbon footprint.

Botanically speaking, a fruit is a seed-bearing structure that develops from the ovary of a flowering plant, whereas vegetables are all other plant parts, such as roots, leaves and stems. By those standards, seedy outgrowths such as apples, squash and, tomatoes are all fruits, while roots such as beets, potatoes and turnips, leaves such as spinach, kale and lettuce, and stems such as celery and broccoli are all vegetables.

All most everyone has heard the saying “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.”

According to the research published in the British Medical Journal by researchers at Oxford University, 8,500 deaths from heart attacks and strokes could be prevented in those over 50 in the UK just by eating one apple per day.

That study also indicates that those who choose to eat an apple could gain the same benefits as those who opt for the drug, statin, which reduces the cholesterol in the body.

The goal of this experiment is to educate while renewing this easy augmentation to a healthy menu.
