One of the best things about summer is the abundance of juicy delicious fruits. In Hawaii, we are fortunate to have many of our favorite summer fruits ripening in our back yard. Fruits provide important vitamins and minerals, antioxidants and enzymes. They also contain phytochemicals or plant nutrients which help boost immunity, have a protective effect against cancer, and help protect against heart diseases and circulatory problems. Stay healthy this summer by simply enjoying all the fresh fruits the season has to offer.
