What happened to fruit this year? Most fruits taste like they were picked way too unripe green or have been in extended longterm storage. So far only one tasty sweet cantaloupe this year. Some grapes from south-africa were barely tasting of grape. Apples is one bite and I go boil them with some cinnamon, tastes of cardstock.

Whenever I'm on a diet, I always go for yogurt, apples, melon, steamed leafy vegetables and boiled eggs.

So, for the past couple of weeks I've gotten very good morning blood glucose readings after eating cheeries the night before. The first week, I was eating Rainier cherries and saw inproved blood sugar readings(below 120) the next day. Then I ran out and it seemed as though my morning readings were higher (above 130) for about five days. Then, got some bing cherries and my morning readings were good again this past week (below 110).

Lots of people have good results having a small snack before going to bed. Glad things are under control for you!!!!

Cherries here are sort of hit and miss this year not sure what happened in a box some are sweet, some sour, some not much taste and watery. The season for cherries is short is only few weeks they are sold here. Cold cherries in the evening are nicely refreshing in the hot weather here.

I will be making the most of the cherry season. My Sam's card is going to get a lot of mileage over the next few weeks.

Hummus is an absolute staple of mine. Favourite veggies: raw carrots or green beans. As for fruit: mango or watermelon are at the top of the list, though there are very few fruits I don't like. I am and always have been a snacker. Even in winter I eat weird snacky combos instead of full meals. When I do cook, my favourites are taco salad, chicken curry, lentil or butternut soup and a few trusty roast chicken recipes.

Oh, and for all my greek yogurt people: mango slices + roast sunflower seeds + greek yogurt + honey. Pure heaven.

I like most healthy foods, especially vegetables and vegetables cooked in all sorts of different ways (roasted, soups, salads, stirfries etc). I wish I liked fruit more.
Lately I've been enjoying my smoothie recipe: tastes so much like strawberries and cream
1 banana, 1 cup frozen strawberries, 1&1/4 cups almond milk, 1/2 cup greek yoghurt
