Every so often, a reader will email me or comment here on the blog with a question. I decided it was about time I added a category here for answering these questions.
One question people have asked recently is what fruits I use when preparing foods, beverages, and just for eating as are. Usually this would be whatever is cheap, lol. But I do have other criteria.
Budget permitting, some items are organic. I try to follow the Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 when possible.
Also, I do not usually eat a lot of fruit – I’m working on losing weight and fruit has sugar. So I try to stick to one, sometimes two, servings of fruit a day. And food servings are usually smaller than we think, so this means eating a small banana or other fruit, and not a large one.
So, what fruits do I usually get?
- lemons and limes for use in recipes or beverages
Are there other fruits I sometimes eat? Of course:
- other fruits I find good deals on
What fruits do you enjoy? And in what recipes do you use them?
