The Incredible Edible Fruit Salad

The Incredible Edible Fruit Salad 
How could I write about adding color to your plate and not give you a fruit salad recipe!

Remember what I said about avocados that they are  loaded with fiber and monounsaturated fats that will fill you up and destroy belly fat?

Well, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries are also loaded with fiber which helps to slow down sugar absorption. They are packed full of vitamins that fight cravings by preventing vitamin deficiency, which is one of the causes for food cravings.

I’m sure you can find all the fruit salad ingredients at your local grocery store, even some dressing, but’s let’s be adventurous and make our own. How about a honey cilantro dressing?

Serves 1 Total Time: 20 minutes

Dressing Ingredients:

1/4 cup cilantro
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon Italian dressing
Dash of lemon pepper


Add all ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth. 

Salad Ingredients:

Couple handfuls of mixed greens
1 cup strawberries, cleaned and sliced 
1 avocado, sliced
1 cup of assorted berries; raspberries, blueberries and/or blackberries 
1/4 cup nuts or seed, optional (they’ll also help fill you up)


Arrange on a plate and drizzle with the dressing. Yum Yum!
