My Daily Day: Keeping the Fruits Happy

Hubby is sick today. We think he got it from a co-worker. I'm trying to keep him eating healthy foods, fruits and veggies. I made oatmeal this morning with apple juice (an Oprah mention) and added some frozen blueberries and toasted almonds.

I'm also working at spicing up fruits that can seem mundane and boring. I sliced up a honeydew melon for an afternoon snack and remembered a dressing we used to make for honeydew when I worked at the dude ranch. We made a honey poppyseed dressing so I recreated my own from memory. The poppyseed really dresses up the presentation of the fruit, while the honey keeps the fruit sweet tasting. Give it a try. Tell me if you like it.
