Thank you for joining me for another Meatless Monday! Deborah and I hope you will link up with your favorite recipe below or be inspired by one of the many that are linked below. I’ve got a pretty sweet recipe for you today, Superfruit Superfood Salad! It’s a super sweet way to start the week!

Fruit! So sweet and fresh, often called natures candy. Something that we always have a lot of in our house and gets consumed a lot. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, dessert fruit is always a great option. I’m not sure they have a favorite way to enjoy it or even could narrow it down to just 1 favorite fruit. They grab it for a snack, A even putting it in her purse one day when I told them to grab a snack quick before we left and she pulled it out and started eating it as she walked through the mall. It wasn’t a small apple either and when people looked at her she thought they were strange, she even had a napkin in case it dripped and to wrap the core in when she was done. There are days the girls will just have fruit for breakfast instead of fruit and yogurt, toast, or cereal (muesli and fruit is one of my favs!). Sometimes when they pack their own lunches it will be almost all fruit, a veggie, and a chia drink, water, or smoothie. Oh and if it’s A a nut butter packet. It’s one of their favorite after school, soccer, and gymnastics snacks. So after getting requests for fruit for dinner, my oldest talking about fruit salads that aren’t really fruit and why do they call them that when there isn’t a lot of fruit. Usually if we make a fruit salad it is just a bunch of fruits cut up that we have on hand thrown together. We do it all the time for brunches and get togethers, my mom always making a marshmallow dip for the holidays. I threw together a Superfruit Superfood Salad! Of course we mix them up with what we have on hand using pineapple, pears, apples, plums, berries, mango, grapes, pretty much any fruit that is in season and on hand when we make it. Than you add in chia seeds, nuts, dried superfoods like goji berries, coconut or anything else. The options are endless just pack in a variety of fruits, as many superfruits as possible like antioxidant packed berries, and superfoods that you can! This is just a favorite I made recently.

      I know! We’ve been buying so much we don’t have room for it in the fridge! Of course when we eat a whole watermelon or pineapple within an hour of cutting it up we don’t have to worry about the full fridge. Haha!

  9. I love fruit and have it for breakfasts sometimes too with some nut butter or granola. Great idea to add the chia seeds and coconut.

    I feel like not enough people eat fruit. I’ve had people tell me they don’t eat it because of the high sugar content but then catch them eating Oreos or something like that lol.

      Yes! Berries and muesli or smoothie bowls are my go to breakfasts lately! A thought she could just have peanut butter and strawberries for lunch at gymnastics today. No way that would fuel her for her 8 hours of gymnastics camp.
      I see the same thing, or the people that don’t want to eat it and are so drained and tired all the time. With all the activities we have in the summer and how active we are I have no problem with the family eating fruit all day long.

  10. How perfect is this for the 4th?! YUM! Thanks for the link up!

      Thank you! You can use any coconut I just like using the unsweetened coconut and I can’t seem to find the one I use to get.

  15. What a gorgeous fruit bowl! I love fruit too. It’s so refreshing and just plain awesome. I love how your bowl has so many different fruits in it – especially with all of the great produce in season at the Farmer’s Market right now.
