We loooove fruits.

We consider our family as one of fruits lovers, from many of them out there. There will be no days without fruits * except during thoes kind of really hard days far way back then. Even so, we will try to find the cheapest fruits in town if that circumstance happened *

My mom is one of the craziest fruit lover I’ve known. She love almost all kinds of fruit * except Durian. * So, when she get sick like the other day, we will just buy lots of fruits for her instead of medicine. Especially during Ramadan like this, I definitelty chose fruits for her recovery.

So, there we are in All Fresh, a market full of fresh fruits and vegetables. I love to buy fruits here. Their services are amazing. For me, who cannot differentiate between ‘good’ fruits * the ripen one, the juicy one, the sweeter one and else * with the one which isn’t, All Fresh is really the best choice. And, the fact that so many kinds of fruits are here, made me feel like I’m in a heaven, fruit heaven if I may say * just should keep reminds myself not to be greedy *

After quite a short while strolling around, we decided to buy papaya, watermelon, dragon fruits, starfruits, and oranges. Let just say that all the fruits we can eat for a whole week during Sehri and Iftar.

Ms Tan Sheau Kang, Dietitian, Department of Dietetics, Singapore General Hospital (SGH), a member of the SingHealth group has said:

“When deciding what to eat during Ramadan, remember that Iftar and Suhoor help sustain your fast the following day, so consuming the right food is important.”

And one of the right food are fruits. Since fruits are rich in fibre, fruits and vegetables are essentials during fasting as they increase the feeling of fullness and help prevent constipation. They also contain vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals that are vital for good health. Not to mention fruits contained lots of fluid which we need after fasting for long day.


So, lets grab some fruits for Iftar then.
