Fruit salad


Yesterday when I was grocery shopping I decided I'm going to have fruit salad for my purple containers. I'm still having a really hard time saying no to bad foods but I'm trying to stick to the 21 day fix meal plan as best as I can.


Fruit salad is my favorite way to eat fruit because you get to eat a bunch of different fruits at once - you don't have to decide if you want a banana OR an apple. These are my favorite fruits for fruit salad. I should have grabbed a melon (cantaloupe or honeydew) but that'll have to wait until next time. I love the combination of oranges and grapefruit, the citrus just adds that something something to it and prevents the apples and bananas from turning brown.

Ingredients:
  • 1 banana
  • 1 gala apple
  • 1 orange
  • 1 grapefruit
  • 1 1/4 c grapes
  • lemon juice



I like to cut my fruit into fairly small pieces so I can have a bit of everything in every spoonful :) I cut the banana in half lengthwise and then cut into slices.


Cut the apple in half, then into quarters. I cut each quarter into three slices and chop into smaller pieces.


You can peel and cut the orange the 'chef way' but I don't mind the membrane so I just peel it normally, divide the segments, and then cut into small chunks.


I find the membrane of grapefruit bitter so I cut it the 'chef way' and then cut the segments into small chunks.


Add your grapes and voila! A beautiful and delicious fruit salad! Add some lemon juice for extra taste and serve by itself or add some granola or whipped topping or whatever your heart desires.



Bon appetit!
