Trying to Cut My Sugar Intake

It's been a long (long, long) winter with lots of cold and lots of snow (it felt as if the snow never melted before the next storm hit). Not being a lover of staying out in the cold for extended periods, I didn't get out for my usual walks, so winter wasn't kind to my general fitness, either. I drank lots of coffee and tea, and I prefer both with milk and sugar.

Now it's spring, and I'm trying to get back in shape. I'm walking again, but looking back, I'm appalled at the amount of sugar I've gotten used to. That can't be good, so I'm making an attempt to adapt to black coffee and tea with just milk. And I'm eating lots of vegetables and fruit. So, for no other reason than to applaud my current food friends, here are some of my favorite fruits.

I think I need to expand into more adventurous fruit territory (mango, passion fruit, kiwi), but for now I'm just enjoying a steady diet of vegetables and the fruit above along with berries and bananas. Oh, and avocados (aren't they really a fruit)?

What's your favorite fruit?

I love fruit & here in QLD it is exceptional. We get all the tropical fruit from up north & all the citrus & stone fruits & grapes from the south of the state.
