Today, I’ve got something a little different for you. I’ve talked a lot about how I want to feed my family a nutrient dense diet. It’s important to make each bite count. During the Real Food Experience this year we talked about “Eating a Rainbow.” The idea behind eating a rainbow is that each of the different colors of fruits and vegetables contain different vitamins, minerals, and nutritient elements. The more colors you eat each day……..the more nutrition you are giving your body. When you eat a diet that is diverse in nutrition you will have more energy and better be able to fight disease.
During the Real Food Experience we talked about all of the health benefits of eating Red fruits and vegetables. There is some powerful nutrition in those delicious red foods. Now…….let’s get real. There are times that we like to eat dessert. It’s not salad all of the time over here. I try to reduce my family’s overall sugar consumption on a regular basis, but sometimes we just want to celebrate with a little dessert.
Does that mean that I just give up on nutrition and go crazy eating nothing but junk?? No. I haven’t completely lost it, although my family may disagree. There is still a chance to grab some nutrition even when eating dessert. I can eat my cake and get my nutrition too. Hooray!
Today I am sharing 10 of my favorite Red Fruit treats. Each one is so delicious that your family won’t even realize they are eating any nutrition at all. I promise. I’m not saying that these are “healthy desserts.” Oh no……..there is plenty of sugar in each one of these decadent desserts. However, a few bites of nutrition with your dessert can’t be a bad thing, right?
