K is for kiwi

One of my favorite fruits is kiwi. Love the tangy flavor. Hard to peel,
but worth it. I usually cut it in half and then use a spoon to scoop out the middle. Good stuff. The artificial flavoring never really tastes like a kiwi. That's why I avoid strawberry-kiwi soda. That and the excessive sugar.

Excessive sugar is found in so many things these days. I'm amazed how many foods that you wouldn't expect to be sweetened are loaded with the stuff. There is mounting evidence that excessive sugar is the culprit in many diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, etc., and of course, the dreaded lard hiney.  I've been trying to cut back on my sugar, but I do fall of the wagon sometimes. It's hard to avoid and hard to give up.

We are all addicted to sugar, baby, and don't you forget it.


  1. I don't bother peeling kiwi anymore, I just eat them with the skins on. Golden kiwi are my favorite.

  2. Funny you should mention sugar. I started an 8 week sugar detox. It's poison. haha.

  3. I love the cut them in half and then eat them with a spoon. So yummy on a hot day. Happy A to Z!

  4. KIWIS are great and fun fruits. I try to use Agave or Stevia but it is so hard to avoid sugar so many salad dressings are FULL of it so even hiding in the healthy. #a2zchallenge ☮Peace ☮ ღ ONE ℒℴνℯ ღ ☼ Light ☼ visiting from
