Fruit- it’s breakfast fuel!!!
Fruit is loaded with essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids and fatty acids. It’s super easy for your body to breakdown which means immediate energy and fuel!!
An important rule about fruit is that it is best eaten alone on an empty stomach or paired with greens and non-starchy vegetables. It does not go well with starches and proteins. It will ferment the meal (and not in a good way) causing digestive issues. If fruit on an empty stomach causes you nausea, burping, upset stomach or bloating then that means your body has an underlying issue that prevents your body from breaking
down the fruit sugar.
Fruit turns to sugar and you should stick to eating fruit before lunch time and stay with “low glycemic” fruits
I never use to like Kiwi (never tried it) about a month ago it was in my fruit salad at #firstwatchand I tried it, now I cannot get enough!!!!
