Breakfast Fruit Salad

March 9, 2014

There is a self-imposed rule in my home which means when I get home from the grocery store I must make a fruit salad.  I call this ‘the breakfast one’ as it includes the fruits I typically buy for my breakfasts.  However, if I do not make this salad right away I do forget to eat some of the fruits which is hateful.  I also have a problem (in my mind) that if I have a piece of fruit alone it does not register that I have eaten  a meal, so this ritual saves time, money and calories.  Try your favorite combination and let me know if this trick works for you.
