    Foods That Fight Stress & Prevent Disease

    By: The Hale Groves Team | On: | Category: Fruit Facts Healthy Eating

    There’s no denying we live in stressful times. Between a world-wide pandemic, rising inflation, and worldwide conflict, the changes of the last several years have proven frustration, tiring, and anxiety-inducing. It also doesn’t help that our mobile devices never give us a break from the bad news. Bad news can lead to stress, which in turn can lead to health problems like high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, diabetes and even cancer. And that’s not to mention anxiety and depression – healthy living, including regular exercise and good eating habits, can go a long way towards managing stress and keeping…

    Exquisite Summer Fruit: Apricots

    By: The Hale Groves Team | On: | Category: Fruit Facts Healthy Eating

    Great news, fruit lovers – apricot season is almost here! Have you never had a fresh apricot? If the answer is “no,” that’s not totally surprising – most of the time, unless you can get them locally, they’re not super-flavorful. That’s because most fresh apricots are picked while they’re still firm and before they’re fully ripe so they won’t sustain damage during shipping. It means they arrive at the grocery store intact, but not at their best in terms of flavor. Not to worry…when you order fresh fruit from Hale Groves – including apricots – it’s still on the tree…

Also, probably penicillin – but fresh citrus fruit and fresh citrus fruit baskets have made the world turn for thousands of years.
