Light and healthy (but don’t tell!)

Are you concerned about how much food you and your family gobbled down and indulged in during the feasting season of Christmas? Or did you stay true to yourself by adding some restraint to the days ahead and keeping things as real as possible?

Since adding this Red Fruit Salad to our Christmas food line-up—or any other occasion—it has won accolades among the pickiest of eaters in my family…who were already super health conscious. It’s sure to be a big hit among your family and friends too. And it’s so much fun presenting this lovely red fruit salad alongside all of the traditional heavier, more fattening dishes.
