Have a fruitful holiday!
Fruit plays a big part in a healthy diet. It’s satisfying and a healthy substitute for high calorie desserts. Eat different color fruits. Each color has its own essential nutrients to keep you fit and trim so you won’t be singing the holiday blues.
However you celebrate, Bill & I wish you a happy, fruitful, holiday.
Our book “Funny Food” is a perfect gift for the holidays, available at funnyfoodart.com
