Well, it's probably not new to you guys, but it is to me! Last month, I bought a bag of no sugar added frozen peaches and strawberries. I made a smoothie, it didn't fill me up and the fruit sat in the freezer for weeks. That's before I discovered the joys of microwaving frozen fruit!
For my breakfast, I had the "weight control" oatmeal and put on warmed up peaches. *drools*.. it was so good. For lunch, I warmed up strawberries and mixed it with my yogurt. Yummmmmmmmmy. When the fruit is heated, it releases it's "juice" so I always feel like I'm eating some sort of sinful fruit topping but I'm not! It also solves my "15 carb snack problem" because a serving of frozen fruit is a bit under 15 carbs and I could possibly sneak a dollop of SF cool whip on top too!
This does raise a question for me though. Is there such thing as eating too much fruit? I mean, isn't eating a serving of fruit under 15carbs better for me than eating a 100calorie pack or something like that? I'm not a huge veggie person, but I know I'm going to be eating a lot more fruit now. I just want to make sure I'm not making a terrible error. The dietician had told me that if half or more of a food's "total carbs" are sugar, you'd probably want to stay away from it. This is different with fruit since it's natural sugars, right? Also, she did want me eating fruits and veggies.. so...
Opinions? What do you guys do with frozen fruit?
