I have a bit of a sweet tooth for fruit type candies (Sweedish fish & Australian licorice mainly) & occasionally I really crave some nice chocolate chip cookies. But fruit can help tame your sweet tooth by giving you that sugar you are craving. Fruit sugar is so much better than refined sugar. Fruit is rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, and is an excellent source of fiber. The fiber in fruit slows down your body metabolizing the fruit sugar and unlike refined sugar, fiber in fruit expands in your stomach, making you feel more full. Fiber is why fruit sugars are not as bad as refined sugar, preventing the sugars from being absorbed quickly and stored. So grab some fruit and enjoy!
