Fruit Salad

Have you made a fruit salad yet this year? Isn't it time you did? 

chop up your fruit and put it in a bowl already. eat it.

I really like eating fruit. 
So fresh.
So juicy.
So sweet.

It's quite satisfying and will usually calm a craving for me. 
However, I'm a little hypersensitive when it comes to my hands, and I don't like, say, biting into an apple or a pear and getting juices all over my hand. Ew. Sticky hands. EWWW. I'm not a toddler!

The fix? The fruit salad, of course. Then I can eat it with a fork, and I'm more likely to eat more fruit this way too. Some days I do have to trick myself to eat more wisely.
Better choices.

Of course you can use whatever fruit you like. Don't make such a big salad that you can't eat it all and the fruit goes bad. 
I only added the sugar because the strawberries were tart and not sweet.
