Happy Fourth of July week! With everything going on I totally forgot it was the July 4th on Friday, but now that I’ve realized this happy news, I’m so excited!
So many questions!
I’m well aware that there are about 456 different opinions on the topic depending on who you talk to, but when it comes down to it, I think there’s some things to keep in mind.
Fruit grows from the ground, and in my opinion anything that grows straight from the Earth should be eaten. I like to think people long before us thrived off of fruit for quick energy and snacked on it throughout the day. Plus fruit is loaded with phytonutrients, micronutrients and antioxidants that are so good for our health. With all the free radicals we’re exposed to everyday, we need all the antioxidants we can muster. But what about all the sugar right? Sugar found in fruit is a combination of glucose, fructose and/or sucrose and is naturally occurring, therefore it’s metabolized completely differently than refined sugars.
