Fruits are packed with vitamins, generally contain fiber which is necessary for proper digestion, usually contain a lot of water (also necessary for proper digestion among other things,) are usually low in calories and fat and contain natural sugars for energy.

If you’re “Battling the Bulge” with me this October, here’s a little list of calories and weight watcher points for a variety of fruits. Keep this handy for easy tracking!

Fruit Calories & Points

Bing cherries – 1 cup = 88 calories w/ 2.7 grams of fiber = 1 point

peach – 1 medium = 42 calories w/ 2 grams of fiber = 1 point

grapes – 1 cup = 114 calories w/ 1 gram of fiber = 2 points

kiwi – 1 medium = 46 calories w/ 2 grams of fiber = 1 point

apples – 1 medium = 88 calories w/ 3 grams of fiber = 1 point

Hey, y’all! I'm Amber, and I wear many hats: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
