Honestly, with shades outside the window ranging from grey to taupe I'm craving some color in my life, perfectly embodied in a 5 minute fruit salad I've been devouring recently. Plus, it has some serious Valentines Day benefits (not that I care this year... but you might, right? Right.)
All you need is:
1 tsp honey
1-2 tbsp nuts: I prefer walnuts or almonds for this one
Cut fruit into not-so-neat pieces and mix with honey and nuts. Eat right away before someone else sneaks into the kitchen to snatch it.
Oh, and for the obvious health benefits... Did you know that banana has substances that stimulate serotonin secretion to boost your mood whereas honey contains bohrium, an element which enhances your sex drive? Better get yourself some of this salad before Sunday!
If you're on a diet, I found some great recipes for low calorie salad dressings here. Lemon Poppy Seed and Creamy Italian are right up my alley!
What's your favorite food for this dreary winter weather? xxx
