Today’s subject for the Photo-A-Day Challenge is “Fruit”. I like fruit. I didn’t always like fruit. Here’s what I think happens: We love fruit as children because it’s our first taste of something sweet. Then we somehow get introduced to candy and baked goods that are over-the-top sweet, so fruit takes a back seat. Let’s face it, there aren’t a whole lot of school kids choosing fruit as their go-to snack, which is a real shame. But there is hope. Those school children will then morph into parents themselves and will once again start eating fruit in order to be a good role model for their children. They will then realize the health benefits, learn how to create wonderful dishes out of fruit and gain a new found love for nature’s candy.
This is what is currently in my fruit basket. I keep the basket on my kitchen island to make sure fresh fruit is in plain view. I currently have organic apples, clementines (of course) and a few bananas. We also have fruit cups (packed in fruit juice) and frozen blueberries. Fruit. Learn to love it again. It’s just so darn good for you.
