I agree with Mikeo, and try to emphasize the beneficial ones!

I try to eat only beneficial fruits for my blood type.  Fruit can be expensive, so I stick with the ones I know are good!  I probably eat more portions than recommended, but enjoy it.  I mostly put them in a morning smoothie.  Seems to work well for me.  At night before bed, I have been having some frozen blueberries in a bowl as well.

Low sugar fruits are okay at night, I think.

Are you meaning blueberries are a low sugar fruit? If so, if I'm not mistaken they are a high glycemic food............   but if they don't bother you, I'm sure it's good for your body to have a beneficial at bedtime. .

I would emphasis the beneficial fruits or super beneficial fruits if one is following one of the Health Series books.

A focus on the dark hued fruits has more antioxidant benefits.

Thanks everybody !!
I do eat fruits alone sometimes ... however; often I will eat blueberries with cottage cheese and honey with a few walnuts on top ... Yummi !!!
or
a banana rolled up in a tortilla with almond butter ... Delicious

Another thing that is soooo wonderful is frozen red grapes with
plain natural yogurt ... a real treat !!!

Do my fellow B'S indulge in honey on a daily basis ??
That's what I've been taking in alot of lately especially since I have stopped eating desserts ... gotta replace all that bad sugar with a healthier one, hence I figured honey would be my best bet ...

If your are eating fruits with the fats and carbs and you have any digestive problems doing so, then you're fine.  

Some people food combine/separate to assist with digestive challenges.

According to the typebase blueberries are a diabetes superbenificial for all types except O for which they are a beneficial. That ties in with the fruit quantities my diabetic dad is allowed:2 figs or a cup of blueberries. He, a B,  has verified that with his blood sugar meter.

Honey is still a sweetener and therefore you will probably be better off using it sparingly. When you use it with fruit you are getting a double whammy of sugar.

Hmmmm I do have some digestive issues; thats why usually I try to eat my fruit alone
but with cottage cheese or yogurt and especially with honey and a few walnuts it's such a treat !!!
and I figured that it's better than having a fatty dessert all the time ...

Hi MoDon,
Hope u're well ?

U're probably right ... I guess I'd be better off putting honey in my tea instead, right ??

I'll make a mental note of that and just save those types of treats when I'm having a sugar attack !!

Thank-u

You might want to test the food separation method for a day or week and see if your digestive symptoms change.

I have fruit with my breakfast which includes a protein source, a grain source, and a nut/seed source.  I eat two more servings of fruit later in the day only as a snack in between meals.

Lisalea,
Or, you could gradually wean yourself off sweetners.    You are eating a lot of fruit which actually has a lot of natural sugar.  Your body will quickly get used to doing without it.  I never would have believed that I could ever give up honey!  Especially in my tea!  But I haven't eaten it in years, and sweet tea now tastes so wrong to me.  Blueberries, cherries, pineapple, grapes . . they are so nicely sweet just by themselves.

Being a be keeper - I use some honey - but not a lot
- I would say 1 tbls sweetner maximum pr day - that includes honey, maplesirup and moscavado sugar
- Off course some days I have none - other days - like saturday- I might have a dessert- and it would be more.
I neveruse it in tea- but on my yoghurt it is nice. I don´t really eat jams anymore- but sometimes a bit of stewed fruit is nice- and I´ll use small ammounts for that.

Fruit is very varied:
I eat about 2 servings of fruit now- but that is wintertime- My body does not want it
- while in high summer - I would be closer to 3-4 servings - all the berries and watermelon......

Hi Victoria hope u're well today ?

U're right sugar isn't such a good thing in the end but at
least I'm eating fruits and honey instead of fatty desserts ... one step at a time ... easy does it  

What do u eat for sweet treats (if I may ask) ???

Thanks

As a type B fatty desserts (as long as they are healthy fats) might be better for you then too many carbs from sugars/sweeteners.

I used to eat a lot of fruit, UNTIL I moved to the UK.
Cost and quality basically forces one to stick to more veggies.

Apparently it will be MANGO SEASON when I go to India this summer!!!

By fatty desserts I meant rich cakes
I'm trying to cut down on cakes, cookies, muffins etc ...
Thanks Don

Those dessert are also loaded with carbs, not just fats.

Stick with your fruit and honey.
