Starstruck Fruit Salad

This morning I needed to have  a dish prepared for my son’s Kindergarten Potluck Breakfast.  I volunteered to bring in a fruit salad but I wanted to bring one that was appealing to the eye so that the kids in the class would be more likely to dig in.  To make the salad more interesting, I added one cool and rare fruit: Starfruit!

  • 1 organic lemon

Recipe

  1. Chop all fruit except the starfruit and mix together.
  2. Slice the starfruit for a nice collection of stars to top the salad.  Arrange as you’d like for nice presentation.
  3.  Slice and squeeze fresh the lemon and drizzle the juice over the top to preserve the flavor and texture of the fruit.

Real Food for Mother and Baby

By Nina Planck

What we put in our bodies on a daily basis really determines our mindsets, how we function, and how well we recover through rest.  Now imagine how much more rest a child needs as they are constantly growing!  I'm a firm believer that what you put in your body determines what comes out of it (not just literally) but through movement, mood and overall wellness.  This book will help aspiring mothers prepare their bodies for pregnancy, expecting mothers give their child a head start on a healthy diet, and growing children outside the womb all of the vitamins and minerals that they need in order to excel and grow to their fullest potential.

Highly recommended!!
