What I have is due in large part because of the sacrifices of others who have been willing to risk their lives for my freedoms. I just want to reflect on this today and to say thank you. Thank you to my dad who served in the Air Force, to my nephew, Robert, who is serving right now. Thank you to my future nephew-in-law who is starting his journey with the army, and for my high school age nephew who has decided to join the Ohio National Guard.
On this day of remembering those who have served our country, we proudly wave the red, white and blue and spend time with family and friends. In keeping with this theme, I thought I would share a simple, yet colorful way to join in the fun and still enjoy a simple, healthy treat.
Patriotic Fruit Salad
2 cups organic strawberries, raspberries, watermelon
1 cup organic blueberries, blackberries
1/2 cup organic, unsweetened flaked coconut
Mix together and enjoy this colorful treat.
What patriotic, healthy treats do you enjoy? Any suggestions or recipes you could share?
