Nature’s Skittles

Natures skittlesI need to put some of this on my blog! It’s been beautiful outside and I know spring is really here. And..spring is the time for renewal and taking stock of what we want for the future. I want it all! As I do every couple of weeks or so, I renew my commitment to eating healthier and fruit is a big part of that. I’ve been eating Granny Smith apples at work. I love Granny Smiths, their pretty bright, light green colour and that sparkling sweet/sour taste. I believe they actually rejuvenate me!

Yesterday, at work, one of my students asked if she could make a fruit salad for the students. What a great idea! That craving for sugar sometimes overwhelms many of us. And what better sugar for us than fruit? Imagine if you had a bowl of cut-up fruit in the fridge for the crave monster moments? Nice way to do it. A little work for lots of health! Even kids could deal with this.Good fruit

I am loving Pintrest and Facebook for the sharing of great ideas for “good” food. I love the pictures! I wish I had some of these ideas when my girls were little. All I remember was “ants on a log”. That is celery filled with peanut butter and studded with raisins. Still a gem!

Look at this picture. How could a kid (or fairly mature adult, even) resist having a bag of healthy snacks? OK. Now you and I have to eat the good things only. It’s a glorious day and I’m feeling really good.

Thanks for listening.  ;D  Diane
