No, its not one of those blogs, honest! Creating quick nutritious snacks for ourselves, family and friends is a great skill! Both Dee and I have it down to an art form. Yep, graduated from the University of Big-Families with our PhDs!
So here`s one of our favourites and you`ll see why!
Ok, fruit salad! What? Yep! Wait its TheBMC so y`all expecting something different!
Remember that fruit salad we made at school? Well, we jazzed it up with carrots, red peppers seasonal fruits like cherries, strawberries, pomegranates! Yes, no predicted text here, I said red peppers! Ok, Dee I lost some at carrots but stay with me, it’s really good! Besides you know you`ve been wondering about revamping that old fruit salad so go on, throw in those pomegranates and yeah throw in that beetroot! Add some mint, flat parsley! Guess what? Not even the your fussy-eaters will notice! We know we`ve done it! Our fruit salads are very versatile, taste great and increase your plant-based foods without feeling prescriptive! Yep Dee`s rolling her eyes! 😊Dr and Teachers` hat off honest!
Normally we make our versatile fruit salad put it in an air tight container then pop it straight into the fridge. It would usually last 4-5 days, depending on use!
With our versatile fruit salad, you now have your base ingredient for: Snack, smoothie, breakfast, lunch.
Just as a snack it has the feel-good factor or take one cup of fruit salad to one cup of water or rice milk place in the blender and now were talking! You can add 1 tablespoon of peanut or Tahini Oh-mega 3-6 its good! Thank me? yeah you will!
As breakfast a bowl of salad with Greek yoghurt drizzled with honey! All you will have to do is scramble eggs and toast, your salads done already!
For Lunch or dessert, ok, we make a gorgeous caramelized crunchy oat topping. Add a knob of butter, teaspoon of brown sugar, 1 generous table spoon of Golden syrup into a saucepan. Melt together in a saucepan add tsp vanilla extract. Now add 1 cup of oats, 1/4 cup crushed pumpkin seed and sunflower a dash of mixed spice! Mix thoroughly leave on a tray to cool. When cooled break up place in a container. Hands-off no munching! In our homes this does not last long! Really!
So were going to load-up! Take a recycled jar place fruit salad at the bottom add Greek yoghurt top with crunchy oaty gorgeous topping! Put it together in the morning have it for lunch or after dinner!
