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.
- 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.
