Fresh Fruit Salad

fruitsalad3

How many of us eat enough fruit? We know it is good for health to eat fruit everyday, but we mostly forget or ignore this. However, one of my new year resolution last year was to eat as much fruit as I can. I can proudly say that I haven’t had a single day without fruit since then. As I am a teacher, I am mostly at school from morning till afternoon (sometimes till evening), so I prepare a fruit box for me every morning and take it to work. What does this box contain? Some fruits I put in my fruit box are apple, tangerine, carrot, kiwi, pear, plum, strawberry, apricot, banana, peach and grape depending on the season. Sometimes I put dried fruits like sun dried apricot and fig, which are my favorite.

You all know the cartoon ‘Popeye’ and his love of spinach. My fruit box is just like his canned spinach! When I feel tired after several classes, I open the box and eat what fruit I have that day and you can imagine what happens next if you know the cartoon.

When I have enough time in the morning, I even prepare a fresh fruit salad to put into my box. It is the easiest and healthiest dessert with the lowest calories.

Mine has no dressing, but you can drizzle a little honey on your fruit salad.

    I love this salad…delicious, healthy and refreshing! I eat tons of fruit and I love fruit salads as long as there’s no watermelon in them. :)

    I used to watched Popeye when i was a kid and like the part when he ate his spinach and it makes him stronger, and i’m so sure that when you eat fruit/fruits it will give you a refreshing effect, too! :D

    Your fruit salad is gorgeous. I love all kinds of fruit, and in the summer I could live on it. It’s harder now in the winter, but it will soon be Spring, I hope! My Mom always made a fresh fruit salad for birthdays, and other family get togethers.
