    I grew up in a place which had lots of fruit. When I see baskets of fruit my heart aches because they are too expensive where I live now. I just try two a day at most. I try to have an apple because I remember we used to read as kids that an apple a day keeps the doctor away! I love melon – its quite cheap at the moment!

    • Hi Susana!

      I totally understand about things being too expensive. I wanted to buy some apples yesterday, but I didn’t because I wasn’t paying $5 for 2 apples. I think those fruits that are in season, tend to be cheaper than those that are not in season. Apples are not in season, so I guess that’s why they are so high in my area.

      Thanks for chiming in!

    I didn’t know apples prevent infections. So an apple a day really does keep the doctor away…

  5. I eat lots of pineapple, because in my place it is very cheap. I did not know that it is good for arthritis.
    Thanks

    Fruits and vegetables are the cheapest medicine you
    you can get and they taste so good. Try carrot chips.

  7. Victoria says:

    Yes, I definitely find it challenging to eat the recommended fruits. It is also incredibly expensive and is exactly why we currently have 6 fruit tree’s and a blueberry bush growing. 🙂 We just planted them this year and so hopefully in a few years we will have delicious, organic fruits available for our large family of 7.

    Great post!

    • Hi Victoria!

      Yes, it is expensive! But you have the right idea.

      I planted a blueberry bush a year or so ago and it died. Maybe I’ll try it again.

      Thanks,

      Evelyn
