I have loved grapes since I was young and I have always been fascinated with the colorful varieties, the burst of flavors in my mouth, the healthy boost, and how perfectly portable they are — you can bring them anywhere, anytime!
If you are on a health journey and at the same time a snack lover, then these Grapes from California are for you! They’re so sweet and juicy and packed with nutrients and antioxidants, too! You and your whole family will benefit from the healthy goodness.
You see, I used to eat a lot of junk food and I was well aware it was unhealthy. I gained weight, a lot of weight. I’m not blaming the food I ate, but actually realized it was all me. I allowed myself to overindulge in foods that do not have a lot of nutritious value.
So, I started my journey toward a healthy lifestyle and included a lot of whole foods like fruits and veggies. Grapes are one of my go-to snacks. What a huge difference in my overall health, believe me!
What are the benefits of eating grapes?
You’ll be amazed by the countless health benefits that this delicious fruit provides.
Grapes are heart-healthy food that contains no fat, no cholesterol, and are very low in sodium. They provide 7% of the recommended potassium intake, a nutrient critical to heart health.
Grapes may help support a healthy immune system. Natural grape compounds, including antioxidants and other polyphenols, help protect the health and function of cells.
If aging gracefully is your goal, then have a daily serving of grapes! They’re good for brain health, the skin, the eyes, and even the colon.
I’m borderline diabetic and it’s great to know that my love for grapes will not cause a dramatic increase in my blood sugar. In fact, it’s a good source of vitamin K, a nutrient linked to healthy insulin and glucose levels.
I had trouble sleeping at night and am glad to know that it’s also a natural source of melatonin, so thoughts of taking sleeping pills had long been forgotten.
Anytime is a perfect time to snack on grapes. I can eat them anywhere, too! I especially love munching on them while I’m working or watching my favorite TV series. At least now I know that the food I’m eating is nourishing my body!
