Fruits! Fruits! Healthy Fruits!
Fruits are very cheap in Thailand. We have learned to eat a lot because we can buy anywhere especially during night time. Most of the planters sell their own produced fruits. There is no middle man here unlike in the Phil., fruits are quite expensive because from the planters to the middle man and from the middle man to the seller and from the seller to the buyers. It goes a long, long way to reach the buyer so to say. That's why fruits are expensive there in the Phil. although our fruits are delicious too but many could not avail nor eat a lot of fruits because of this way of selling.
Fruits are good source of vitamins and minerals that our body need everyday. It gives us strength and energy. It also helps ease pimples and treats other skin problems. It was already tested and proven by many. I, for one could attest to it. I love to eat to eat fruits and vegetables, so I look young, I guess, huh! I also encouraged and sometimes forced my kiddos to eat some for a healthy and strong body. They really love to it mangoes, bananas, apples, oranges, chicos, grapes and the like. But I still need to force them to eat some vegies, although they ate some but still need to be encouraged. I guess, that's one of our rules as parents - to lead them and to guide them the right choice of food, for a better health and a healthy body as well.
Here are some of the common fruits here in Thailand. I share some of the photos again next time.
