Want To See Picky Eaters Gobble Up Fruit? Add Chocolate!


I’m blessed with a daughter who eats really well, but that doesn’t mean I don’t serve this up anyway. Cut up some nice fruits and serve it with a little chocolate syrup. Or, if you have dietary restrictions, how about a sugar free chocolate? This may seem a little indulgent to the fruit purists in the world but a whole two tablespoons of regular Hershey’s syrup adds on a mere 100 calories. Not bad for five whole pieces of fruit. Trust me when I say that your fruit will disappear a lot more quickly. And, your kids (and their friends) will thank you. I also like to serve this at parties. Something really healthy but still decadent at the same time.

Meditate:

As with most things in life, eating healthy is much more about what you can do and not what you can’t. Sure, we’d all like to drop 20 pounds in a week but what kind of drastic changes do you have to make to your diet in order to accomplish that? How about adding a few little changes you can live with. Like eating your fruit, even if you do add a little chocolate. As the moon is waxing, it’s a really good time to, rather than restricting the body, to nourish the body. Give it what it needs – more water, more fruit, more vegetables, more rest, more vitamins – whatever it is, do what you can do and do a little bit of it each day until it becomes like breathing.

Eat Well
