Salads - Fruit - Make quick and easy fruit salads for the week. Use your favorite fruits: strawberries, blueberries, kiwis, bananas, etc. Add a splash of orange juice and throw it in the freezer overnight. By the time lunch time rolls around, the fruit will be thawed but still cold, and you're ready for a healthy lunch.
Ingredients: for the fruit salsa: 2 kiwis, peeled and diced 2 Golden Delicious apples – peeled, cored and diced 8 oz raspberries 1 (16 oz) carton of strawberries, diced 2 tbsp white sugar 1 tbsp brown sugar 3 tbsp fruit preserves, any flavor (I used strawberry; would only use 2 tbsp next time) Serve with chilled fruit mixture. This salsa can also be served with cinnamon graham crackers or cinnamon pita chips.
Those packages of pre-sliced apples you can buy at store are great for a healthy snack on the go but the price can add up. Make your own by slicing apples, soak in cold water for 3-5 minutes, then soak in a lemon-lime carbonated soda (such as 7-up or sprite) for 3-5 minutes. Divide into snack size portions and store in Ziploc bags in the fridge. The lemon-lime soda will keep the apples from browning and make them last. Will have to try
