Snack Time: Fresh Summer Fruit

Do you ever struggle with what to eat in the hot summer afternoons? The heat is draining and you need some fuel. Make sure you reach for something healthy. There is just no fruit like summer fruit and keeping a big bowl of it chopped up in the refrigerator is the easiest way to be prepared for that afternoon hunger. Best of all, it is so sweet it tastes like a treat and you get added water from fruit! If you can afford to buy organic, please do. If not, try to find local berries. In the end, just make sure you wash the fruit well. It is always better to eat fruit of any kind that chips :)

strawberries, cut into fourths
mango, diced

Place all fruit in a large glass bowl and store in the refrigerator. It is ready when you are hungry!
You can play with the ratio of the fruits to your liking. That is why I did not put exact amounts in the "recipe." Kiwi would also be good in this; just wash and cut it up with the peel on. The peel has great additional fresh fiber.
