Add Tropical Fruits to Your Menu

By Brandi Goodman  

An assortment of tropical fruits should be on your weekly menu. Many of them provide large doses of essential vitamins that are necessary for your well-being. Adding their festive colors to your plate can help to spruce up the meal and make it even more beneficial for you to eat. 


Papayas offer high levels of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Vitamin A. The antioxidant powers they provide can help to fight toxins and keep the cells safe. Enjoy more papaya in your week and help your heart, digestive tract, and your health overall.


Mangoes make for an excellent snack. They fight infection, improve eye health, and are good for the skin. Due to the included Vitamin A, mangoes are worthwhile for boosting your immune system and keeping you looking and feeling good. 

Dragon Fruit

Dragon fruit, otherwise known as pitaya, is high in fiber and protein. Enjoy a serving as a snack and you'll be satisfied until it's time for the next meal. Magnesium, iron, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E are among its top nutrients. 


Lychee is very low in calories. Enjoy 100 grams of it and you'll get just 66 calories into your daily count. This fruit is very high in Vitamin C, making it beneficial to your immune system. Vitamin C is ideal for fighting off colds and minor illnesses. With special antioxidants also provided, you can boost your liver health and lower your level of triglycerides. 


Pineapple is enjoyed by many people each day. Even though it's part of the tropical fruit family, it's more readily available throughout the year. With Vitamin C, fiber, Vitamin B6, manganese, and more nutrients high in numbers, pineapple has a lot to offer your body and mind. Fight disease, ease digestion, boost immunity with the help of pineapple's powers. 

Star Fruit

The true name for star fruit is carambola. Its nickname derives from its shape. This fruit provides high doses of Vitamin C, fiber, Vitamin B5, and more nutrients. Lots of healthy plant compounds are included, which work to reduce cholesterol and keep the liver healthy. It works well cooked into stews or curries, or can be eaten plain once you've removed the seeds. 

Add these tropical fruits to your menu and gain the many benefits they bring. The festive colors won't just look great on your plate. They'll bring the many nutrients and vitamins your body needs to thrive. Get tropical all year long.
