The only question to answer now is… WHICH fruit will you eat first? YUM!
Because fruit contains natural sugars (fructose), it is best to limit your fruit intake to 1-3 pieces per day. If possible, buy organic fruits to eliminate your risk of exposure to pesticides and GMO’s. Enjoy throwing them into your smoothies, whipping up a fruit salad for dinner, or even just eating them as they are!
