Happy Tummy Fruit Salad with Ginger Mint Glaze

Summer gets me in the mood to sit outside on a picnic bench and enjoy a bowlful of the freshest in-season fruits. Unfortunately for us Calgarians, it hasn’t exactly been warm this summer.

But, just because the weather stinks doesn’t mean I can’t eat like it’s hot outside… while wearing my thick fall fleece and long johns.

I wish I was kidding.

There were a couple hours of warm weather over the weekend, so I nabbed a couple shots and posted them on Instagram. If anything, it’s helped me remember what summer is supposed to feel like…


For this salad, I wanted something that was flavorful, easy on the digestive tract, and slightly warming.

I love eating fresh fruit in the morning, but find it can be a bit harsh on my digestion at times. Allowing a salad like this to “marinade” overnight eliminates some of the harshness. Also, filling it with digestive healing herbs like ginger and mint, and fiber rich berries didn’t hurt the cause either!

To my surprise Kevin actually liked this salad! So, if you have a meat eating, white sugar worshiping partner at home, they may actually like this salad.

Bonus points for me, but less salad for my breakfast. Or in the case of this morning, no salad at all.
