It’s one of my biggest pet peeves that people think fruit is unhealthy because it has sugar. 😣
I hear it all the time about bananas 🍌 especially.
Yet, blueberries to oranges have gotten a bad reputation.🫐🍊
Fruit often gets a bad rap for its sugar content.
I’m begging you to please stop 🛑 comparing donuts and bananas!
The sugar naturally found in fruit is so much different than the dozens of various sweeteners on grocery shelves.
Consuming fruit is associated with dozens of health benefits.
🍑improved heart health
🍍protection from chronic diseases
🍉added fiber, vitamins & minerals
Eat plenty of fruit every day as part of a healthy plantbased diet.
Eating fruit has NOT been linked with higher blood sugar, even for my clients with diabetes!
Is fresh fruit the best option?
Dried fruit, canned fruit and frozen fruit might have added sugar, so check the labels.
If you buy plain versions with just fruit as an ingredient it can be a really affordable way to add more fruit to your diet.
I especially like frozen fruit for smoothies and dried fruit for snacking.
The benefits to eating fruit definitely outweigh any downsides.
Fruit has so many great nutritional qualities and it just happens to taste good.
That’s a win-win in my book.
