It’s no secret – sugar harms the body causing everything from inflammation to obesity.
But many well-meaning people give up the processed sugar and switch to eating fruit all day – not realizing the high sugar content some fruits contain.
The good news is, even if you are on a low sugar diet, you can still snack away at these low sugar fruits – in moderation – and guilt free!
Strawberries are full of fiber – and low in sugar!
With only 7 grams of sugar per cup, this is a must add to the fridge for every person on a low sugar diet – who still craves just a hint of sweetness.
Not only are they delicious, but they are full of vitamins.
In fact, Healthline reports just 1 cup of strawberries has over 100 percent of the recommended daily amount of Vitamin C!
These are the perfect fix to throw on a salad (and they go great with goat cheese) to add a bit of sweetness and color to your greens – and they make great snacks.
Yes, avocados are in fact a fruit!
One of the healthiest additions to your diet, Healthline reports one avocado is loaded with everything from Vitamin K to Folate – and actually contains more potassium than bananas!
And you can eat these guilt free – as 1 cup of avocado contains only 1g of sugar!
These are perfect to add to your keto-friendly breakfast or toss on a salad at lunch.
They are also a great snack with a bit of organic virgin olive oil and sea salt!
This superfood is rich in antioxidants and loaded with vitamins and minerals like Vitamin C and manganese.
One cup of blueberries has about 15g of sugar, so it’s best to only eat ½ cup of these sweet berries a day.
For breakfast, throw some in your plain Greek yogurt for a little bit of flavor and texture.
Keep ‘em frozen and toss them into a smoothie in the morning.
Or if you are looking for a small pick-me-up snack – a handful of blueberries is a good choice.
Avoid These Fruits
Mangos are full in sugar – and 1 mango has a whopping 46 grams of sugar!
Likewise, 1 cup of grapes is loaded with 23 grams of sugar – and most of us eat more than 1 cup full in a serving.
Even if you think you’re being healthy by eating fruit – avoid snacking on these sugar-filled treats at all cost!
And remember, even when eating low-sugar fruits –they key is to eat them in moderation.
As a rule, try and have only 1 serving of fruit a day.
Sugar is still sugar – and while fruit is a healthier option, the grams of sugar still add up!
