Edible Arrangements: A Delicious Gift Idea

Time is running out for gift shopping and if you are like me, shopping for gifts is a chore. Even worse when you have to shop for someone who has it all or someone that is hard to please. If you are scratching your head about what gift to get a loved one or friend who loves food you can’t go wrong with an Edible ArrangementsĀ® fruit basket. The Happy Holiday Village Fruit arrangement is a perfect festive holiday choice. It includes fresh cut fruit, chocolate dipped pineapple snowmen and chocolate dipped strawberries covered in white crisps.

There is more at Edible Arrangements: 

Edible Arrangements stores are locally owned and everything is made fresh daily which I love. In addition to the beautiful fruit arrangements, the stores also carry other grab and go items from their Edible TreatsĀ® line. This includes chocolate dipped fruit,  fruit pops, chocolate dipped apple donuts and more.

I am lucky to have the South Weymouth Edible Arrangements store in my neighborhood so I can stop by and pick up a fruit cup or some chocolate covered strawberries whenever I need to. However if you are not to close to one you can always order online or over the phone to have the arrangement delivered.

I hope this has given you an idea for a gift.  Not only can you give Edible Arrangements as gifts, you can also serve them at a dinner party as an impressive dessert course. I absolutely love Edible Arrangements and I think you will too.

Healthy bites: How to include fruit to your diet

As an advocate of clean eating my go to snack for those times when I am craving something sweet is fruit. I like to think of fruit as nature’s candy because it is sweet without preservatives and artificial ingredients. The best way to remind yourself to eat fruit in is to buy a variety and place it in a easily accessible bowl or rack. Not only does it make your kitchen counter look pretty and colorful, you will find yourself grabbing a piece each time you are hungry. 
One way to include fruit to your diet is adding it to your morning smoothies. One of my favorite combinations is pineapple, strawberries, spinach, carrots, almond milk and organic protein powder if your goal is to build like I am.

Green smoothies are my ultimate favorite because of they are low in sugar and packed with nutrients. Try blending kale, cucumber, granny smith apple, a tsp of fresh lemon juice and water for a tasty green smoothie. Sometimes I substitute almond milk for water for a slightly creamy smoothie. Have this 3 times a week and you skin will thank you . 

If you have no time for blending and juicing you can just cut up some fruit, place it in a cute bowl and enjoy. Either way incorporating this healthy food item to your diet will do wonders for your health.
