    Fruit this time of year

    Shop Now
    I know a lot of people in this community limit fruit consumption, but boy, if there's any time of the year to up intake it's now...with the abundance of in-season, organic fruit. I had an organic nectarine today, and the flavor just exploded in my mouth. Not to mention things that are in season are chock full of nutrients...and they just taste so amazing that it lessens my temptation to indulge in things I shouldn't! Also had some local, organic Michigan strawberries that were just incredible.

    There's nothing wrong with fruit, especially organic fruit in season. Those of us who are diabetic or pre-diabetic (me), or trying to lose fat, just have to be careful. For Grok and Grokina, it was perfect that fruit coming ripe in the fall would help them store fat for the winter, and fruit coming ripe in the spring would help them rebuild the fat that was depleted during the winter. Or something like that. But they didn't have candy fruit like ours.

    Enjoy

    I've been eating more fruit the past couple of weeks - something about sunny weather! And, I've lost two pounds in the last week

    We are designed to eat fruit. Perhaps not 20+ servings a day, but in the tropics, there are hundreds of species of sugary, wild fruits that grow year-round and have not been domesticated by man. Whole food fructose does not make you any fatter than whole food fat.

    Berry picking is upon us! Go forth and gather! Even if you are limiting fruit, berries are some of the best foods you can eat.

    I read, or skimmed, your very interesting links. But for about 2 million years our ancestral homeland was not tropical. Most of the time homo sapiens have been around has been ice age. Our direct ancestors may well have hunkered down by the ocean for tens of thousands of years.

    I'm a seasonal fruit eater I just don't feel like eating much fruit in the winter but come summer and I'm all over it. A life without watermelon? No way But only in the summer when it's actually sweet and delicious

    I didn't eat much fruit my first month primal because it wasn't the right season yet, but the last week or two I've started eating more. Once the peaches are ripe enough to smell in the supermarket all bets are off! (still waiting for that!).

    i had an organic nectarine yesterday. Mmmm! and a grapefruit. blackberries. i completely agree with shannon about watermelons (and other melons). big juicy melons are probably neolithic, but i'm not skipping them for the 2-3 weeks in the year they're in season here!
