I have been on a fruit kick ever since I went to the farmer’s market in June.
I don’t know if it was the realization that I was in a bit of a fruit rut (apples & bananas), or if it was the realization that since I’m in California I should embrace fruit in season (especially since the berry season seems to be longer here).
Maybe it was the great fruit straight from the farmer. Whatever it was, I’ve been getting me some fruit lovin’.
I’ve been eating berries, nectarines, watermelon… yum, yum, yum!
I don’t understand why fruit has been deemed a bad guy lately. Low-carb dieters tend to stay away from fruit and it confuses me.
Sure, fruit is a ‘carb’, and has a few calories, but in the overall scheme of things… fruit also has fiber and lots of vitamins. Can you say that about a diet soda?
I for one would rather have a plate of fruit than a soda any day.
Q: What’s your take? Fruit… good guy or bad guy?
Until next time…
