Brian’s Berry Breakfast: simply strawberries and walnuts

…according to an article in Nutrition Journal. (BTW, Shelby Hughes,with Type 1 diabetes, mentioned in a recent interview that she eats a fair amount of fruit.) The Nutrition Journal study participants were newly diagnosed type 2 diabetics. This is interesting research because we’ve often assumed that the sugar in fruits would raise blood sugar too high, leading to recommendations to avoid fruits, or at least limit them to one piece daily.

Of course, fruit in an integral component of most paleo diets.

The Well blog at the New York Times covered the story.  You’ll likely find the comments illuminating.  Also see this Diabetes Self-Managment article. I’ll read the original research report when time allows.
