Skipping sugar may be the current craze, but if you’re eliminating organic fruit from your diet you’re doing yourself a disservice. “Fruit provides a lot of things we need,” says registered dietician Bonnie Taub-Dix, author of Read It Before You Eat It. “It provides vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It also hydrates us and provides us with fiber, which fills us up.”
If you are avoiding sugar or simply being mindful of your recommended sugar intake—for diabetes management or just to improve your health—there are plenty of guilt-free fruits you can eat.
