“Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb. It’s where all the fruit is.” Shirley MacLaine
The peaches are almost ripe, and the blueberries are selling for two-fifty a package. It’s the perfect time to put together a summer fruit salad.
Healthy Benefits – Besides the fact that the fruit is beautiful, BBC News reports that filling the body with fruit and other healthy foods like nuts and high fiber contributes to long-term weight loss. We all know it’s true, but it’s our job to take and eat – like Eve in the Garden of Eden.
Fruit Psychology – Health.com says the best way to include more fruit in the diet is to visualize the fruit salad. Instead of wasting brain cells thinking about that luscious Brownie a la Mode Sundae with vanilla ice cream and hot fudge dripping off the topping, why not picture a fruit salad? You get my point.
Eve had one up on us regarding the seductive power of fruit. Today, I put together a tempting dessert. My husband insisted that fruit is what we all needed. We’ll see which one gets eaten first. I’m sure Eve would have had a more difficult time had there been a chocolate moose in the garden.
