What if there is little variety of fruit in winter?

by Angelika

Angelika's Question:

In winter time here in Greece we have got only bananas, apples, pears, avocado, oranges, kiwi and non-organic fresh dates. Also we have for a short time pomegranates. So the sweet fruit is mostly banana. Do I get all the nutrients with less variety?

Andrew's Answer:

Winter is a time of fruit scarcity for much of the world outside of tropical regions, and selection declines. While more variety is always better, the more limited selection of fruit you describe is still more than sufficient to meet all your nutritional needs.

Even a limited raw food diet contains many times more nutrients than a meat-and-grain-based diet.

If you're able, consider a vacation to a warmer climate with a better produce selection during the winter to change things up.
