Quoted from VictoriaWith me, it's usually 4 and sometimes 5 and at least half of them are always beneficials.
Quoted from Henriette_Bsecabout 2-3 in winter and 5-6 in summer !
I donŽt have as many nice benefical fruits as the B nonnies- but I tend to threat the B noonies fruits as bennies for me as well:-D
At the moment I eat mainly pineapple, bananas and green grapes.
In a while the pineapple and grapes will disappear and IŽll have to stick to bananas and neutral fruit
untill the strawberies- and other berries come.
I tend to eat very seasonal when it comes to fruits- since out of season fruit is boring and expensive and heavily sprayed.
It means that sometimes IŽll eat more neutral fruit - while in july-october it is B heaven here when it comes to fruitt ;-D
Quoted from John_McDonell_O+Hi Lisalea,
I know I'm not a B, but like Henriette I am very strict on fruits and eat them only seasonally ... which does not mean when they are available in stores, but how these would appear - outside + locally. For Henriette and I that means all tropical fruit (fruit juices) are out for winter ... fruit like pineapples, bananas, etc ....perhaps we can eat some red grapefruit. I even tend to put lemon in my water only in the summer months.
This may seem harsh, but these plants just cannot survive up here in our cold .... long term will I do better? I really do not believe we can extract cold-tolerating aspects of foods that do not have cold tolerance themselves.
The only 'food' up here (at this time) are dried crab apples. Birds will only eat these as a last resort ... all other food-sources are gone! Applying such to our lifestyle means we eat a small amount of prunes in the winter and take vitamin D3 to increase immunity ............ along with seal/whale oil.
Quoted from lkpetrolinoLisalea- I would avod grapes with your sugar cravings, they are full of yeast and most likely only aggrevate your problems. Fruit was really not meant to be eaten in excess in the human diet it is still sugar and traditional cultures ate small portions
Quoted from LISALEA
but grapes r supposed to be beneficial for B'S ??????!!!
Full of yeast ?? really ??
Quoted from LISALEA
Really ?? which ones do u eat the most if I may ask ? Thanks ;D
Quoted from VickiFresh fruit is still a better choice than a concentrated sugar.
Lisalea, do you have sugar cravings after eating a meal?
Quoted from VictoriaI like strawberries and fresh pineapples, but they are too acidic for my body, so I never eat them.
Quoted from Victoria
Grapes are beneficial, but just be aware how moldy they can be. Clean them very well, first removing any that have visible mold or turning brown at the stem end. They break down very quickly and if you eat them blindly, you will swallow a lot of stuff that you wouldn't really want to be eating.
Grapes would probably be good fruits to wash well with dilute grapefruitseed extract or dilute peroxide/water. But remove the bad ones before washing or you will spread the mold around.
Quoted from Brighid45I'm not a B, but I generally follow the tendency to eat seasonally. Right now I'm eating storage apples and pears for a snack during the day with a small banana at night after dinner, so I can take my meds a little later and not worry about stomach irritation.
There's usually a time in the spring when there's nothing available, so I'll turn to dried figs or currants in place of fresh fruit if I get a craving. Trail mix made with beneficial dried fruits, nuts and seeds really works well until the fresh local fruit comes into season.
Victoria, I have the same problem with fresh pineapple and strawberries. I love both fruits, but they sure don't love me! I still have them now and then, but only in very small amounts and usually paired with some other fruits to buffer the acidity a bit.
Quoted from Brighid45Just the banana--I have a small one about an hour or two after dinner, when I take my meds (most of which cannot be taken on an empty stomach). The starch in the banana helps me sleep a little better, imo anyway. The other fruits are usually a mid-morning or -afternoon snack.
Quoted from VictoriaLisaLea,
You asked how I know if a fruit is too acidic? It makes me feel awful, usually with heartburn and sometimes loose stools. If I really eat a lot of something like fresh pineapple or fresh strawberries, I can even get little painful bumps inside my mouth.
I get the same effect from oranges.
And I wash my produce with warm water also. :-)
Quoted from 1poplargirlWill Dried Fruits replace fresh ones ok? Right now I'm eating Dried Apricots and Dried Pineapple.
Quoted from New_Hampshire_GirlI guess I'm not much help here. I'm posting because I'm a B. However, I'm lucky if I can remember to eat any fruit at all. Lately, though, I have gotten in the habit of eating Wyman's frozen wild blueberries in the morning and one-half red grapefruit one-half hour before supper. I do drink pineapple juice for my morning B cocktail.
Quoted from 1poplargirlFabulous! Thank you, dried fruit at times is just easier! I do prefer fresh but not always convenient! Enjoy!
