Hey, when is the last time you had a big, juicy piece of fruit?
If you're struggling to remember, it's a safe bet that's too long ago.
Personally, I'm just coming out of a sugar-induced coma, what with all the cookies I've eaten since I had to bake them for my son's home-coming from college. The things moms do for their kids. Such sacrifice.
So here's Today's Small Thing: Take the fruit out of your fridge and set it out in a bowl as an edible centerpiece.
Or you can artfully cut it up however you like. The point is, get fruity for a day and enjoy what is long forgotten in our busy lives: things that aren't packaged and processed.
We recently rekindled a love affair with clementines, simply by putting them in a bowl on the counter! Even little fingers can peel them and eat them like candy. A bag of clementines cost me just a little more than a bag of Cheetos. Both snacks are bright orange, but only one of them makes you glad you ate it afterwards.
And here's a handy guide, provided by the USDA, that shows what we should be eating....not a Cheeto in sight.
I will have to stop at the grocery store to fulfill today's task, but I have renewed incentive to stock up on fruit.....points.
POINTS: 40 for setting out some fruit or arranging a fruit plate
BONUS POINTS: 10 per person in the family who eats at least 1 serving (1/2 cup) (long-lost relatives not included)
What is YOUR favorite fruit? Do you have a good technique to get yourself (and your family) to eat more fruit?
I know you're wondering about the baby. My grandbaby. The baby that will rock my world. Well, we are still waiting for my daughter's baby to arrive! Little Ivy was due on Monday, so of course we are on pins and needles, hoping she'll pop into the world soon! Mama is feeling good, but getting anxious to meet that little one...so please send up a prayer for her, would you? Plus, I really really want to hold her. :)
