Great as snacks
As all hand fruit is
I estimate these were 25 cents per piece
An admitted ice cream and cookie addict, I have no problem getting 5 – 7 servings of fruit and vegetables each day
And those are raw
They take no preparation other than washing and a bit of trimming
Large carrots, sometimes I peel ’em, sometimes I don’t, but I always wash ’em, I eat ’em in the car instead of M&M’s!
Celery, trim and wash only, I always eat the leaves
Cucumber – wash only, then I often eat a half or third as a snack
Apples – a favorite, just washed
Strawberries – cheap now in Louisiana, even the ones coming from Cali – rinse and top – I eat the alone, with yogurt, on cereal and yes, with my beloved ice cream
Bananas – only eat half at a time, find them really filling
Salad and Sprouts – if I am not having a full on salad, I still load up my sandwich with a huge hand full of salad mix and sprouts
These are all easy, quick and awesome!
