I’ll admit, I probably don’t eat enough fruit most days.
But I’m sort of picky and in a hurry… and …
All excuses are equal. Equally worthless.
But… I do eat a lot of vegetables… ???
Okay… so I don’t have a great reason WHY. But, I know I’m eating more fruit, more frequently – and that is a great movement in the right direction.
When we are at home, we have yogurt for breakfast. Every day. I like having the same thing everyday. I really do.
For lunch, if I remember… I have a half or smaller of a banana, or part of an apple, or a peach….
Sometimes we do fruit from the freezer section… you know the ones that people blend into smoothies? We defrost it and eat it that way too…. mango, pineapple, peaches and mixed fruits. This is a great option when other things are out of season. (Who likes HARD cantaloupe or tasteless strawberries? No thanks!)
(Remember: A serving of fruit fits in your hand… so it doesn’t have to be a LOT. I see people fill up on fruit in LARGE amounts, and assume if a little is good, a lot is better. Not so. Many fruits can be high in natural sugar, so consider how much and how often you’re eating which ones.)
Right now the peaches are awesome in Kansas and we had some excellent cantaloupe as well today! Get fruity!
