All we need is five servings of fruits and veggies a day... and when they look like this there's no excuse to pass them by!
MMmmm Apples and I love that pink and green dress
This salad from winter vegetables looks delish!
Granny Smith apples are a favorite of mine!
Red Pitaya - AKA Dragon Fruit
Have you ever picked a bushel of cherries?
Yellow Watermelon - heirloom vegetables are available at your local farmers market and they taste oh so good!
Green tomatoes, if you come to my house for lunch in the summer you're either eating fried green tomatoes or BLT's!
Oh, sweet cherries!
I love limes... ask the preppy boyfriend, the number one thing I add to any dish is lime or lemon. If you often find yourself reaching for the salt, try adding lime or lemon to the dish, often times our tongue wants more acid in a dish, but our brain confuses the message and we reach for salt. It's the number one reason we over salt our food.
Some of my fondest childhood memories are wrapped around raspberries. Fresh raspberry milkshakes at the lake, sneaking down to grandma's garden to pick raspberries, and waiting oh so patiently for grandma to come visit in the fall and bring her jars of raspberry preserves. To this day I won't eat jelly or jams, I only eat raspberry preserves!
Long beans, green tomatoes and chilli's? Somebodies gonna have a good stir fry tonight!
Watermelon radish - such a pretty way to dress up a green salad
Pears... oh how I love pears... and a pear as a place card holder... I'm swooning!
Mmmmm heirloom tomatoes... seriously, buy some heirloom tomatoes either from your local farmers market or your local organic grocer, or better yet grow them yourself. They put supermarket tomatoes to shame... seriously eating a supermarket tomato is like eating cardboard compared to an heirloom tomato.
Another Heirloom watermelon, I know the yellow spots look like artful photography, but actually those spots are on the rind of the watermelon.
I love this strawberry topped with mint inside this cake... what a fun way to dress up a simple cake!
So, loves... can you find five fruits and veggies you would eat today?
