Just How Sweet Is That Piece Of Fruit?

Incorporating substantial amounts of fruit in our diets plays an important role in Creative Health Institutes raw food living lifestyle.  We know that fruits play an intricate part in helping us reach and maintain the highest levels of health.

To help you become more familiar with the sugar content of the fruits we eat here at the Institute,we  have arranged them by sugar content, based on a half-cup serving of fruit.

If you are going to get the most health benefits from fruits and vegetables, you should consider eating only organic. If your budget will not allow for only organic then check out the “Dirty Dozen and the Clean Fifteen, listings of the worst and best fruits and vegetables.
