Low Sugar Fruits to Enjoy

I've mentioned that glucose is the choice food for cancer growth and nutrition...so watching our intake of glucose intense foods is critical. Spikes in blood sugar levels is what we are trying to avoid.  By combining high-fiber carbs that we eat with a protein or fat, lowers the likelihood.   (If you're craving a piece of toast, have it dipped in virgin olive oil, or topped with hummus or almond butter.)

Here is a list of fruits that are low in sugar that you can enjoy without thinking twice. Recommended 1 - 3 servings /day.


Choose fresh, ripe, organically grown fruits.  Frozen is OK when fresh is not available.


  • Apples
  • Bananas (on the green side, no brown specks on skin at all, otherwise high in sugar)
  • Berries (fresh not dried) (blackberries, blueberries, cherries, gooseberries, mulberries, raspberries, strawberries)
  • Papaya
  • Pears
  • Pineapple
  • Peaches (not over-ripe)
  • Plums
  • Rhubarb
