The best time to eat fruits is first thing in the morning after a glass of water. Eating fruits right after a meal is not a great idea, as it may not be digested properly. The nutrients may not be absorbed properly either.
You need to leave a gap of at least 30 minutes between a meal and a fruit snack. Ideally, one should eat fruits an hour before the meal or two hours after, if they have diabetes or any other digestive problem like acidity. Thisis because, sometimes, diabetes is accompanied with digestive problems.
Can I mix fruits with other foods? You can mix fruit with yogurt or salt as long as you do not have any digestive problems like indigestion or acidity. You can also mix fruits like pineapple, oranges, melons or pomegranate with salads if you like. There is no harm in mixing berries and dry fruits with cereals either.
As much as possible make a pick of organic fruits which are free from insecticides and pesticides, and are much safer for consumption.
Keep processed, frozen, or canned foods at bay. Such packaging of fruits only signifies unnecessary food additives, (sugar) preservatives and artificial flavoring.
Try to eat fruits as-is, without adding sugar as fruits are naturally rich in sucrose (sugar)
Heavy fruits can be reserved for the mid-noon meal, as your digestive system will be more equipped to handle the load better.
