Fruity Snack

So I was sitting at home relaxing and all of the sudden I get a craving for fruit. But I did not just want to munch on a banana or an apple I wanted something that would satisfy my craving to the fullest and add some antioxidants as well. I looked in the fridge and behold I found some interesting ingredients that made a fantastic fruit salad.

Not only are fruit salads yummy but they are high in vitamins and nutrients for your body. They are also a low calorie snack that has a sweet taste to it. Your body feels healthier and more energized after a snack like this. Every organ is thanking you when you ingest healthy foods.

Here is my fruit salad:

1 banana, dozen strawberries, 1 orange, 1 mango, 1 pear (if no pear use an apple), 1 kiwi, 1/2 squeezed lemon juice. If you have blueberries, add those.

Mix all of these ingredients into a bowl and add the lemon juice. Add some yogurt on the side or whipping cream and ENJOY!

Here is how you will benefit from this fruit salad:

Boosts your immunity

Protects you from cancers and heart disease

Gives you an antioxidant boost

Regulates blood pressure

Reduces bad cholesterol

Protects against macular degeneration

Helps your eyes

Protects against diabetes and UTI's

All of these things are in my special fruit salad recipe. When I am eating this delicious snack I think about what my body is doing with it; it's protecting it from this dangerous world of cancerous products.

What a great, light, and delicious fruit salad you will have.
