fruit

The thing about giving-up added sugar is that I still get to have a good dose of natural sweetness twice a day.

But, sugar cravings are a thing of the past.

And, now that flavours are much more intense, fruit needs to be paired with other foods such as cereal or cheese.

Now, the whole point of eating whole fruit (skin and all where possible although pips are optional) is that we benefit from all those wonderful vitamins and nutrients.

And, the fibre consumed offsets any ill effects of fructose, the specific type of sugar found in fruit.

The cause of all our woes.

The one found in many of our processed foods, especially soft drinks, lollies, chocolate, fast-food, flavoured milk, and honey, just to name a few.

However, we also need to avoid fruit juice and even dried fruit.

Whilst they too have lots of good stuff, their sugar concentrations are way too high.

Much more than we need.
