The topic or question of the day:
How much is too much fruit?
Fruit is often seen as a “diet” food due to the fact that most fruits are low calorie, low fat, contain very little sodium and have a plethora of vitamins, minerals, fiber and phyto-chemicals. The problem I ran into this week started at Sam’s. I bought way too many blueberries and raspberries, along with rotund watermelon and a largo bunch of bananas.
When the raspberries started growing mold (as raspberries do, nothing against Sam’s), and the bananas became soft and sporting brown age spots, I began eating large portions of the fruit daily before it spoiled. We all know that a low calorie portion of food can turn into a high calorie load when large amounts are eaten. You may ask why I did not freeze them? I actually did freeze a huge carton of blueberries and some bananas, but ended up eating way more more calories than i normally would eat in a week because fresh fruit is so good. A note was written to “self”. Be careful not to shop with your eyes and be sensible.
Quote or tip of the day:
“Don’t be hasty when fruit looks tasty or it will end up on your waisty”
Take Action Today:
Do not buy large amounts and several kinds of fruit that will spoil at the same time. Plan wisely.
