I do hope that you are starting your morning feeling energized, excited and happy about the day. And I hope that this newsletter helps you do that 🙂
I’ve gotten lots of emails in the past few months from women all over the world asking me about fruit.
You’ve all heard the “fruits have tons of sugar” argument.
So, lets discuss…
FACT: No one ever got fat from eating a piece of fruit.
Yes! It is completely okay to eat fruit
Fruits are highly nutritious and low in calories. The sugars we are all so scared of in fruits are all natural and are processed differently in your body then unnatural sugars like twinkles, brownies and all the sugar found in breads and cereals.
Bonus: Fruits are so sweet that they’re suitable as desserts, but they’re still quite low in calories, and high in fiber and nutrients.
Pair Them Right:
The best way to pair your fruits is to eat them with your yogurts, cheese, salads and proteins or as a snack on their own. However you should know that overeating anything is not a good idea, eat slow and in the right portions.
Fruits are great for breakfast or lunch, our favorite ones are listed below, calories per cup included of course.
