Cookies? UH UH. Pass the Fruit and Veggies, Please


Now that the holidays are blessedly "ovah,"  the body yearns for fresh, colorful and crunchy foods.

I've had enough cheesy dips, finger-licking-good chickie wings and on and on.

Now it's time for:


And:



Oh yeah, ditch the dippies and bring on the carrots and celery. Crunch, crunch, crunch.

That fruit plate looks absolutely delish!

Yes, it is time for fruits and vegetables! I LOVE fresh apricots, and they are available only for a short time - very expensive, at that!

Bookie said...

I'm trying, Susan! But finding it extra hard to return to what I know I should be doing...just don't have enough fight for the struggle...tiresome business!

Dee said...

I agree....I am ready for fruit. I am cookied out. LOL

Glenda said...

Oh, yes! I will eat broccoli in any way, shape, form, or fashion, and if you hand me a dish of fresh strawberries and pineapple, I will be content, with or without dipping into anything else! Of course, nothing wrong with some dark chocolate dip now and then.... :-)

I too find my body ready for some fruit and veggies! I love strawberries!

hugs, Linda

Apples and potatoes are my favorite fruit and veggie.

You are making me hungry. They look so good. My absolute favorite are blueberries.

It's the one thing I'm looking forward to leaving for California in a few days...all the fresh fruits and veggies one could devour! I especially love avocados and like my mom, I can eat them with just a splash of Balsamic vinegar in the center! You are making me hungry too, but my baking today will have to be to use up some bananas my husband hasn't eaten...again!! XOXO

Any fruit at it's perfect ripeness is wonderful! But peaches are the best.
Love any kind of beans, and spinach, fresh good veggies that are homegrown are fabulous. And tomatoes!

It's all in the presentation --- isn't it?? Makes it so much easier to eat healthy when it looks as lovely as your pictures. I vote for pineapple and kiwi.

Too many to pick just one. :) But lately the grape tomatoes are so delicious. I eat a bunch of those for lunch at school every day along with a piece of cheddar cheese. Delicious! Tammy

What a beautiful and appetizing plate of fruit. I like berries and melons the best. Citrus isn't as easy to get down especially grapefruit.

I love sweet potatoes and most vegetables. Fresh green beans, asparagus, winter squash...
