Eating More Fruit

I have never been a big fruit eater. Growing up, we had our own organically grown apples, strawberries, raspberries, plums, peaches, and blackberries. I ate them, but I didn't love them. I have always loved cherries, but I only rarely eat them since they are so expensive...

I have been thinking for a while now that I should eat more fruit. Actually, I have been thinking about why I don't eat more fruit. Both my kids as well as hubby like fruit. I came to the conclusion that I am so busy preparing and packing fruit for everyone else that I am just tired of preparing some for myself. Yes, I know. It's not that hard to wash some fruit and eat it. But, sometimes it just is! I just don't feel like going through the trouble for myself (but I don't mind doing it for others....)

So I started making fruit salad several times per week for EVERYONE (really only cut-up fruit that I keep in a big glass container or a bowl in the fridge; sometimes I add a bit lemon juice). Guess what? I actually really like fruit when it is convenient to eat...

Question: What is your favorite fruit and how do you like to eat it?

Be well,
