I’ve read in one article that the best way to eat fruits is to eat them first before having a meal – quite the opposite of what many of us are accustomed to. Fruits are usually equated with dessert, thus, we save them for last. But supposedly, our body absorbs the nutrients far better on an empty stomach rather than a full one. It figures. It seems the same is true with the mind. It will never accept anything when it’s full. So, when you’re standing there holding an overripe banana, debating with yourself whether or not you should eat it because you’ve already had your lunch, and it’s an awful waste of potassium, and you can still have it later on before dinner, you just… eat it anyway.
