Summer Fruit

One of the best things about summer has got to be the availability of fresh fruit. I'm even willing to do the unthinkable and pay extra for fruit that has already been cut up and placed in a flimsy plastic bowl at the grocery store. No muss, no fuss. Just fresh fruit ready to consume. How awesome is that?!

Since a new start on weight watchers is inevitable in the summer, I find that the fruit bowl becomes even more appealing because of it's Points Plus™™™® value, which just happens to be zero. If the fruit is at it's perfect state of ripeness you don't even have to bother with any other dips or accouterments. Surely, this is "grab and go" at its best.

Smoothies are a great way to get all that fruit. With a little yogurt,juice and ice all that lusciousness can really be portable. Need help? Check out this tutorial - Make-a-Fruit-and-Yogurt-Smoothie.

Summer is here (well, close enough), so enjoy!
