Instead of using just raw fruit in a fruit salad, try adding some rhubarb stewed with a sweetener and its' juice, apple stewed with a teaspoonful of mincemeat, or a piece of stem ginger in syrup chopped finely with some lime juice as the base then add some fresh and canned fruit in juice. This gives a few more options for ringing the changes and if you want some topping use yogurt, low fat custard or low fat home made rice pud made with a sweetener. They are all good served cold for breakfast.

I find that eating a Salad a day helps to get your fruit/veggie servings in, keeps the weight loss moving, and keeps me regular. I never was excited about salads before, but jazz them up with craisins, etc... It will help you reach your goals.
Tired of the same old salad for lunch? When you make your usual salad Add 3 bean salad ,comes in a jar, and sprinkle feta cheese crumbles on top. This gives a whole new flavor to the same old bowl of tossed salad and adds a little calcium,plus ups the veggie total for the day.
