Healthy Snacks In The Fruit Bowl

bananas and apples in a fruit bowl

Healthy food is what's on my mind lately, and I guess my pictures of the day will tend to reflect that. Today, we've gone to the fruit bowl, both literally and figuratively.

One of the easiest ways to lose a couple of pounds is to simply make the right decision, more often than not, when the question is some from of ...

"A cookie, or an apple?"

Needless to say, coming up with the correct answer is somewhat easier when you have well stocked fruit bowl sitting on the counter. Now I'm not sure you could really call ours "well stocked" at the moment. But at least the bananas are exactly how I like them ... almost, but not quite, over ripe.

When they're like this, they add just the right amount of sweetness to a smoothie. We can never have enough bananas in our house. It's by far my favorite fruit. But I actually ate a lot more when I was TDY to Florida ...

Because, here in the Morris house, it's also baby Joey's favorite fruit ... and breakfast on most days .. so as silly as it sounds, whenever I grab a banana, I always feel a little bit as though I'm "stealing" food from the baby. :-)

Ok, a quick word about the picture ..

Obviously taken with my Nexus S, using natural light from the window. I exported it to PicSay Pro, where I upped the contrast and saturation slightly, then applied the "cross process" effect. When I was done, I added the white matte around the edges, and sent it off to Wordpress.

Til next time ..
