Fruit: Nature’s Candy

I cannot tell you how happy I am that God gave us fruit as a natural candy.   I love watermelon, pineapple, and strawberries and bananas and apples!  I just love all fruit!

If you are trying to eat a healthier diet, don’t avoid fruit just because it has sugar in it. I find that when my diet is balanced with 2-3 servings of fruit a day, I not only feel better, but I also crave less processed sugar.

Processed Sugar = Bad! / Fruit’s Natural Sugars= Good

 

Fruit is not only a great source of sweetness it is also a vitamin rich, easy to digest fuel for your body.  Fruit is also a great source of carbohydrates and antioxidants. When eaten raw, most fruits even contain enzymes that help with its digestion.

Glucose is a simple sugar that is an important energy source for our bodies, and is a component of many carbohydrates. Once the body has depleted the glycogen stores, they need to be refilled. A quick, easy, and delicious way to restore them is with fruit: a simple easy to digest carbohydrate!

Along with fruit being quick to digesting and absorb into the body quickly, it has an added bonus:  it has the vital nutrients the body needs to function like vitamin a, b, and c.

Don’t avoid them, enjoy them, eat fruits!
