Where to Begin?
I know that some of you are either diabetic or have family members that are diabetic. My doctor says no grapefruit or other citrus fruit because of my one medication. However, yesterday on the news, there was a story that tangerines possess something that will help to lower blood sugar levels. And I love, and miss, grapefruit. My pharmacist says 1/2 grapefruit once or twice a week won't hurt -- I just shouldn't eat an entire bag! What are your experiences with grapefruit?
I've also never tried Asian pears, star fruit, plantains, or figs. I'm really hoping for some ideas for new veggies and fruits to add to my food list. Please post your suggestions.
