No. 8 - Eat Your Fruits

 
Eat Your Fruits 100 Ways to Glorious Wellness Number Eight - Health Coach to High Flyers.png
 

I'm a fruit fan. One or two pieces a day is a very good thing. Packed full of vitamins and fibre, fresh fruit is damn fine.

However I'm not such a fan of fruit juice. Once the fibre's been removed (and for most of us, we need MORE fibre in our diet) fruit juice can lead to a blood-sugar spike. I recommend to all my clients that they eat the whole fruit.

I often get asked 'are smoothies ok?'....I say yes as they still contain fibre even though it's been whizzed up. That said, I make my smoothies with greens like cucumber, spinach, parsley, avocado and just a small amount of fruit for sweetness e.g. half a pear, apple or banana.

If you have any fave green smoothie combos, I'd love to hear 💚
