Healthy Haze: Fruit Salad and Yogurt

Hi everyone,

I thought the perfect meal for this week would be a fruit salad with a side of yogurt.  Fruit is a great way to stay healthy and there are so many choices, too.

For this snack you will need:

  • fruit (any kind)
  • yogurt (any kind)

First, you cut all of the fruit up and put it into a large bowl. For mine, I chose grapes, grapefruit, an apple and some clementines. Then you can mix the yogurt and the fruit together or eat both separately. Fruit salad is a quick and easy snack that can be eaten on the go but it is healthy too.  There are so many different options to choose from and you will never get bored with this simple meal.  I hope you all had a great week.

Happy eating,



Going Green Tuna Wrap

Trying to eat healthy while still enjoying your meal in a college world can be a very challenging task.  Here I created a refreshing tuna salad wrap that won’t leave you feeling shameful after eating it.

Here is what you need:

  • 5-6 oz. of tuna (1 can)
  • One small granny smith apple
  • 1 TBSP of light Mayo or plain greek yogurt
  • 2 TSP of Lemon juice
  • 1 TSP of Dijon mustard
  • Spinach tortilla wrap

Combine the tuna, mayo (or yogurt), lemon juice, and dijon mustard into a bowl and stir them together evenly.  After stirring the ingredients cut the apple up into slices and set one slice aside to add into the tuna salad.  Cut the one apple slice that was set aside into small cubes and stir this into the tuna mixture.  Evenly spread the tuna salad onto the spinach wrap and roll it up.  If desired toast the wrap. Serving the wrap heated or cold is perfectly fine it is all about preference. The apple slices that were not put into the tuna salad can now be the side dish.  I love using tuna in my recipes, its quick, easy, very cheap and is full of protein.  Leave a comment and tell me what you think about the recipe.



Fresh Fruit

Do you have a sweet tooth?

Fresh fruit is a healthy and easy way to satisfy the craving for sweets.

I bought a pineapple and a package of strawberries to eat for breakfast over spring break.  It is extremely easy to prepare.  Once you cup up the fruit make sure to refrigerate it!  It will last you at least a week.

The left overs could even be put into a fruity cocktail or frozen drink!  Enjoy this beautiful weather!

I was so excited to eat the fruit that this picture was taken mid meal.  Usually the bowl is a bit more full, oops! You can see my fork about to dig in.
