    Build The Perfect Meal By Using Fresh Citrus Fruit

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

    You probably already know that the American Heart Association recommends four to five servings of fruit daily. That can seem like a lot, and you may be struggling with just how to eat more fresh fruit each day. Our recommendation is to think outside the box – that is, the snack box. It can be hard to think of fruit as fitting into your main meals (except maybe for breakfast, when fresh-squeezed orange or grapefruit juice is often considered a must). After all, a piece of fresh fruit, packed with flavor and nutritional benefits, can be viewed as the perfect…

    Health Benefits of Pears

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

    “A pear a day keeps the doctor away.” Does that statement seem wrong to you? While it’s true that Benjamin Franklin actually made that claim about apples, he could just as easily have made it about one of the other quintessential fall fruits – the pear. It’s true – pears are not only delicious (and if you’re not a fan, it may be that you haven’t hit on quite the right pear variety for your taste buds), but they’re also supremely good for you. Pears can be used in many ways besides eating them fresh out of hand as a…

    5 Reasons to Eat Navel Oranges!

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

    There’s nothing like that sweet-yet-tangy flavor of a Navel Orange. If sunshine had a taste, orange might be it! A fresh, navel orange is delicious on its own, but its unique taste can add a bright flavor to salads, soups and entrees, while orange candy, orange cookies, and cakes flavored with orange are perfect if you’re looking for a lighter, melt-in-your-mouth dessert after a heavy meal or when serving tea.   Navel oranges are sweet, seedless and have excellent health benefits. These health benefits can be attributed to their high concentration of antioxidants and other health-promoting nutrients including vitamin C…

    Is “Orange” a Color or a Fruit?

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

    With the increased availability of Navel Oranges for sale you might find yourself wondering about this oddly named fruit. After all, apples are red, pears are green, plums are purple, and oranges are…well, orange! Why are oranges so named? You may think it’s because all oranges are actually orange whereas not all apples are red (nor are all pears green or all plums purple). The fact is that oranges (navel or otherwise) grown outside the US aren’t always orange – some stay green, and some become almost lemon-yellow.

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

    Concerned about high blood pressure? Maintaining a healthy diet rich in fruit and vegetables can help you manage the condition. What is high blood pressure?

For patients diagnosed with high blood pressure, the first line of defense is usually lifestyle changes. These can include regular…

    You NEED to Try Sumo Citrus!

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

This, friend, is a Sumo Citrus fruit – a king-sized snack with king-size flavor and nutrition you won’t want to miss! Why You Need to Try Sumo Citrus® from Hale Groves If you’ve been hesitant to try the Sumo Citrus oranges you’ve seen in stores, we don’t blame you – depending on how far you live from where they’re grown, they probably look a bit bruised and dingy.…

Another year you sent your mom some nice-smelling handmade soaps, but were they really better than the store-bought ones?
