I'm trying to add more fiber to my diet and I've been reading up on high fiber fruits. One fruit stood out. Guava. High in fiber, high in Vitamin C, low in calories. I've never had it. What is it like and is it easy to eat? I need something simple I can eat at my desk without making a mess.
I would definately go with the berries! they are low in carbs as well. They are excellent antioxidents as well. My favorites are strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and blueberries. You can eat tem plain or sometimes for a low carb treat I pour a little cream (the heavy kind) on and it is very ummy! I freeze berries from my garden so I can have them all year round! You can also buy them frozen in the off season, just look for the ones frozen without sugar or syrup!
Children are Precious.....Lets keep them Safe!!!
oh Guava is sooo good (except the seeds). It might sounds weird but I had ate asian (viet) guava and South America guava. They both had a lot small seeds. You could eat the seeds because they are sooo small (however, I could never eat it). The asian guava has hard seeds and the South America is a little softer.
The South America is pinkish-redish inside and the asian ones is white-pale. (I really don't know how to describe it).. Anyways.. they are sweet.
Between others fruits and guava, Guava has a lot of Vitamin C for the South America; I am not sure about the asian ones.
I love the South America Guava, you should try it but i find it quite expensive.
