Are you hungry? If you are, better not read this post. We’re going to talk about food. Let’s start by the food pyramid.

At the top of the pyramid you have the fat(gorduras), oils (óleos) and sweets (doces). These are not very healthy (saudáveis), so don’t eat that much.

Below that you have two groups: Milk (leite) (and its derived) and Meat (carnes).

Then you have vegetable (verduras) and fruit (frutas).

Finally, at the bottom of the pyramid you have breads(pães). grains (grãos) and other starches.

This first post about food we will see some fruit.

applle (In this picture you have a red apple, but we also have green apples)

banana (Our good and old nutritious banana.)
blackberry (There are many berry fruits - blueberry, strawbery, and other berries)
cashew ( Do you know how to say castanha de caju? It's cashew nuts)
cherry (Aren't they delicious? Some years ago it was hard to find fresh cherries in Brazil)
