HAHAHAHAHAHAHA Who remembers The Wiggles? I sing this song every time I make “Fruit Salad” EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
I really love fruit, but you have to be careful. It is FULL of sugar! The general rule of thumb is to eat all your fruit in the first half of your day. That’s why I LOVE it for breakfast! I decided to get crazy one day, and meal prep fruit. Now, you know how scary that is! Bananas, apples, BROWNING. Ew. Just ew.
BUT WAIT! I have figured out a trick to make it actually work! These pictures might look familiar, but I want to tell you exactly how I made it work.
First things, first, meal prep small. Four days or less. It’s super quick, so you can do this once or twice a week after the babies go to bed.
To get started, gather all your supplies.
Fruit of your choice
lemon juice (The secret ingredient)
The rest is easy. Cut up all your fruit and distribute it evenly among your containers. Once all your fruit is cut and distributed, that’s when you add the secret ingredient. A small splash of lemon juice. This will help your fruit stay fresh for a couple days. If you really want to get crazy, I have heard that you can put water or a sugar free juice in it as well. I have not tried that, though…
I like this because you can change up the fruit based on the season or your mood. The lemon juice adds a hint of flavor, but not enough to ruin the fruit. I actually really like it! I find myself craving fruit every morning. It’s so easy and fast!
Give it a try and let me know how it goes! Thanks, Lovelies!
