I only recently have discovered how amazing fruit is. Yes, I've eaten fruit before, probably since before I can remember.
But this summer my mind has been opened to the wide variety of fruits the world has to offer!
And yes, I am almost definately not eating local right now, which is very unkind of me, but... oh well for now. Maybe eating locally grown produce will come to me later.
I never like melon. I tried melon once or twice years ago, and decided that it wasn't for me. Recently, I have grown to LOVE melon. Especially cantelope and honeydew! Delicious!!!
Bananas continue to be a staple for me. I eat a banana every morning with my breakfast. Bananas and apples used to be the fruits that I ate on a regular basis.
In my fruit-to-be-eaten pile on the counter right now I have: kiwis, oranges, bananas, watermelon, black grapes, apples, and a plum. Only because I ate the rest of the cantelope last night. :-) Plus canned pineapple, since fresh is too expensive for me. But I made sure to get the kind without syrup, and it's amazing!
Forget what you've read about fruit being too high in sugar: It's low point because it's full of water and fiber. The natural sugar that fruit contains is just the icing on the cake, if you will.
WW Fruit tip: Use SetPoints! SetPoints are a part of the plan, NOT cheating. I don't weigh or measure my fruit, I just use SetPoints. http://www.weightwatchers.com/plan/int/planguide_12.aspx
