TIP OF THE DAY: Thanksgiving Fruit Plate

Who would have thought that fresh fruit could have such a Thanksgiving theme! We found this idea in in the Dole Pinterest stream and couldn’t resist making one ourselves. In fact, it’s a great project to keep the kids busy on Thanksgiving.

Ingredients Per Fruit Turkey:

  • 6-8 apple slices
  • 9-10 orange segments
  • Pear half
  • For the feet: 6 orange peel strips (or yellow bell pepper)
  • For the face: 2 mini chocolate morsels, peanut half
  •  
    You can make and enjoy this fruit gobbler for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snacking throughout Thanksgiving weekend. Consider adding a side of yogurt or cottage cheese.

    THANKSGIVING FRUIT & VEGETABLE GIFTS

    Looking for something very nice and also very good-for-you? Turkey-decorated cookies may be cute, but premium produce is more considerate, not to mention more welcome during this calorie-packed season.

    Melissa’s, America’s premier purveyor of fine fruits and vegetables, has an e-store that makes sending healthful gifts a snap.

    You’ll find everything from traditional and organic deluxe fruit baskets to organic vegetables, including several varieties of Organic Purification Boxes and options that include specialty foods and wines.
