Let me state it right away – Fruits Are Great For You! With fruit juices, fiber, phytonutrients and minerals, we can gain great benefits eating fruit daily.

Like with any food, we need to educate ourselves about this fruit subject! One of the nutrients that fruit boast of is sugar. For some people, watching how much sugar they consume with every meal is critical. That is why, we need to know some things about the food we eat to make smart and wise decisions and plan our life as a happy experience.

Controlling blood sugar allows us to control our cravings that can push towards snacking – more often than not of the undesired food items. Choosing foods high in fiber can truly level out high and low spikes of “erratic” blood sugar behavior.

Some fruit, however, have low sugar content. Here are a few examples that jump into the picture right away.

AVOCADOS

This fruit has only half a gram of sugar on average! Yes, avocados are high in fats, but this is a healthy monounsaturated fats that are good for our bodies and lower LDL (bad) cholesterol. Slice fresh avos into your salads, sandwich, make a guacamole with it!

GUAVAS

An excellent low-sugar fruit that is truly an excellent combination of natural sugars and fiber. One little guava contains about 5 grams of sugar and 3 grams of fiber. That’s an exciting thing! It is more fiber than in a serving of brown rice! Eat guavas with skin, as it adds more nutrients and fiber into your body!

RASPBERRIES

These berries are my favorites! They pack 8 grams of fiber in a cup and only 5 grams of sugar! This is almost unheard of! Eat raspberries every day, and you’ll enjoy the flavor and fullness they bring to your hunger.

CANTALOUPE

Usually, melons are very high in sugar. Yet this one – a yellow cantaloupe – is an amazing one. It offers about 5 grams of sugar in a sliced wedge and and can be enjoyed frequently. Add some to your smoothie, too.

PAPAYAS

Half of a medium papaya has about 6 grams of sugar. But the benefits in this reddish fruit are abundant! Papaya is high in fiber and has that enzyme called papain that aids in digestion. Loaded with phytonutrients, it offers antioxidant effects and fights inflammation! What’s not to enjoy!

STRAWBERRIES

These berries are power houses packed with a gazillion of nutrients. These nutrients include vitamin C, folate (vitamin B group & is needed for healthy cell division as one of many functions), potassium, manganese, dietary fiber, and magnesium. A cup of fresh strawberries carries only 7 grams of sugar. They are great on your salads, in smoothies, and just as they are – pop them into the mouth fresh and yummy.

    Grapes

    A cup of grapes has about 23 grams of sugar. These could be frozen and consumed at a lower speed as a dessert or a snack.

    Red grapes are especially good for our well-being. The powerful antioxidants called POLYPHENOLS prevent many types of cancer, including esophageal, lung, mouth, pharynx, endometrial, pancreatic, prostate and colon.

    The resveratrol found in red wine famous for heart health is a type of polyphenol found in the skins of red grapes.

    Enjoy grapes, just know what they offer.

    Cherries

    A cup of these beauties contains about 18 grams of sugar.

    I know I LOVE red cherries and can it them by the bowl. For those who need low sugar foods, knowing this fact about cherries will help to plan their meal portions.

    Cherries offer antioxidant protection. Cherries contain powerful antioxidants like anthocyanins and cyanidin.

    They also offer amazing benefits like:

    • Reduce inflammation and gout
    • Support Healthy Sleep (Melatonin)
    • Has Cancer-Preventive Compounds
    • Arthritis Pain Relief
    • Reduce Belly Fat
    • Lower Risk of Stroke
    • Reduce Belly Fat

    Research shows that the antioxidants in tart cherry juice can reduce pain and inflammation from osteoarthritis. A 2012 study showed that drinking cherry juice twice a day for 21 days reduced the pain felt by people with osteoarthritis. Blood tests also showed that they suffered from significantly less inflammation.

    Do know that juice in the research did not have any added sugar!

    Melons are high in sugar (except Cantaloupe, 5 grams per slice).

    Watermelon slice has about 17 grams of sugar.

    But watermelon has a great many benefits like being a great electrolyte source for our body.

    Take this–> Watermelon is full of vitamins such as Vitamin A, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin C.

    Watermelon is also packed with lycopene and amino acids, all combining to contribute towards healthy skin, aiding the immune system, and benefitting from antioxidants.

    Figs

    2 Medium Figs have about 16 grams of sugar.

    They are rich in fiber: Figs are a good source of soluble fiber which helps in keeping you full for longer periods of time and relieves constipation.

    They are rich in vital vitamins and minerals: Figs are rich in Vitamins A, B1 and B2, manganese and potassium, magnesium, copper, iron, and phosphorus.

    Bananas

    One medium banana has about 14 grams of sugar.

    But almost every household eats bananas every day! And they are so good for us!

    We all know bananas as a great source of POTASSIUM, an electrolyte that keeps our systems going and is a co-factor for many chemical reactions in our body.

    Did you know that in many countries they eat a banana skin?

    Banana peel is eaten in many parts of the world, though it’s not very common in the west. It contains high amounts of vitamin B6 and B12, as well as magnesium and potassium. It also contains some fiber and protein.

      Never heard of eating the skin! It doesn’t seem like it would be able to be chewed unless really ripe!
