All the lovely fresh fruits are starting to come into season now (I live here in the GWN) so what are your favourites. I progress with the season and they come in and out of availability. And if you have a local farmers' market (we have 2 nearby) take full advantage of nature's bounty. Right now its fresh cherries. Yummy but in moderation of course because we're good girls and boys when it comes to eating' aren't we?

I crave watermelon, honeydew and cantalope, and lately bananas. Thankfully when eaten in the right quantity they don''t bother me. I'm a vegetarian and if I couldnt have my fresh fruits and veggies I would be in big trouble! LOL

I love bananas, watermelon, cantaloupe, and strawberries mostly. There are others, but these are my favorites.

We have had blueberries, strawberries and now cherries come into season. You are right, the markets are the best place, well next to growing them yourselves. We just had our first garden raised watermelon last night. YUM...a yellow one. Very mild and no spikes for me. I have to watch my fruit, but berries are kind to me, so I make sure I enjoy them as much as I can.

My body just won't handle fruit. Shoots the numbers through the roof. I actually haven't eaten any fruit in 3 years and actually I really don't miss it. Since my tastes have changed on my low carb eating plan I actually enjoy raw cauliflower as a "dessert".
