During these Pandemic days I’m sure that we haven’t all been the healthiest, and we might have all taken on a few pounds. I’m here to tell you a little about making a few more healthy choices. “Making the healthy choice at the start of your day can help you at the end of your day,” said Whitney Young senior Madison Tate ‘21. I believe that to be your best self you have to treat your body right and it all starts with a nice diet. Just for beginners starting the day with a little more fruit in the morning can give you minerals, vitamins, and provide a wide range of health-boosting antioxidants. I am here to show you 10 of my favorite fruits that you can add to your diet and how they can help you while you are stuck in the house.

  1. Strawberries
    1. Packed with vitamins, fiber, and particularly high levels of antioxidants these can help boost your day and they are delicious.
