    When thinking of grilling, fruit may not be the first thing that comes to mind, but grilling fruit is a fun twist on the typical summer fruit salad. Some fruits that take well to grilling include pineapple, peaches, pears, apricots, apples, and plums.

    A diet rich in fruits and vegetables delivers plenty of vitamin C, potassium, fiber, folic acid and other nutrients. Fruit is also low in calories, fat, and sodium. All fruit is cholesterol free. Eating enough fruit and vegetables can help protect against type 2 diabetes, many cancers, heart disease, and excess weight gain.

    To start eating more fruits and vegetables, you may want to choose types that are in season. These will usually be less expensive and will be at the peak of their flavor.
