How sugary is nature’s candy?


I apologize for being semi MIA this week. A big change took place and I’ve been adjusting and trying to keep myself busy. For those of you who may not already know…  I’ll clue you in soon.
Any who, without constrain; I often consume a decent amount of fruit and vegetables on a daily basis. They keep me feeling satisfied and I truly enjoy eating them.  Like most people, I do believe eating any type of fruit over an unhealthy snack option is best. I never thought about the extent of sugar in each or what would be considered the healthier option in the produce section. Fruit is fruit, right? I personally am not fickle when it comes to fruit. I’ve made some positive changes in my meals the past couple of months, therefore; I have nothing to complain about… yet.
