Waking Up to Fresh Fruit

Over time, I’ve been experimenting with eating different foods and am still experimenting to see what works best for my body. For breakfast, I find that fruit in the morning works best for me. I’ve tried to have heavier meals thinking I would eat less later on in the day and have it fill me up but it doesn’t always work that way. After having a heavier meal, I’ve found that I feel more sluggish from having to digest everything and I don’t necessarily eat less throughout the day. I still seem to get hungry around the same times throughout the day (Habit might also have a role on this).

I believe experimenting with food is what everyone has to do as there is so much conflicting information regarding nutrition these days- one day the news says something is good for you and the next day, it’s bad.  I strongly encourage you to do your own research as well and see how your body reacts to different types of foods and diets (when I say diets, I am not referring to losing weight but rather what you eat everyday).
Have fruit in the morning makes me feel light as it’s easy to digest. The natural sugars also help wake my body as your brain and body runs off glucose. Eating the right amount of fruit is very important though. You want to eat enough to help keep you full and satisfied so that you have enough energy for the day. Usually I have two “breakfasts”, one in the morning at home and then one when I get into the office mid-morning before I have my lunch. Fruit is filled with lots of fiber and vitamins and is easy on your body after a night of fasting so it’s a great way to start your morning.  What do you usually have to eat to start your day?
My love for fruit is strong. I even take pictures of the fruit I consume. The above photography include some of my food snaps.
