Do you worry about how sugary fruit is? Actually, fruit delivers a burst of vitamins as well as a naturally delicious taste and it’s all low calorie nutrition. A serving is usually about 50 or 60 calories. An average-sized orange has only about 12 grams of natural sugar, and a cup of strawberries has only about 7. You’ll also be getting 3 grams of fibre, vitamin C, healthy antioxidants, and a shot of folic acid and potassium.
Fruit is a great option for a healthy snack , alongside vegetables and protein. But not as an alternative to a balanced meal containing protein.
