Sugar Freedom Week 8 Days 2 & 3
I finally learned what “limited fruit intake” means. After I ate a banana (wrong move).
This sign greeted me when I got to Farmgirlfit this morning. Apparently we’re sticking to fruits on the low glycemic foods list: cherries, plums, grapefruit, peaches, apples, pears, grapes, and oranges.
Unfortunately, bananas are a medium glycemic food, so I wasn’t being as limited fruit savvy as a I thought when I ate one for a pre-workout snack. Oh well. It definitely makes sense to stick to a list that affects blood sugar the least.
This list was SO interesting to me, though! I mean, who knew bananas had more sugar than apples? Or oranges?? After having a mini FarmGirlFail moment with the banana (what we’ve dubbed sugar weakness moments), I started geeking out over the list. Nutrition stuff like this is so cool! And I’ve never really had to paid attention to the different levels of glycemic foods before, so this opened my eyes to a whole new world of food awareness.
