Did you know: 

That by eating a healthy fat source i.e nuts, whilst consuming fruit, you will slow down the absorption/uptake of the sugar (contained in the fruit). This enables our bodies to have a better chance at utilising the energy from the fruit. It also helps to maintain a more even blood sugar balance, helping to decrease the big spikes & drops!

Tip:

Add a healthy fat source to your fruits and higher carbohydrate containing veg, here are a few ideas:

  • Hummus/avocado with carrot sticks

  • Pure nut butter or natural nuts with a piece of fruit

  • Avocado or eggs on toast
