What better way to allow for your 5 a day. My kids eyes will light up at the thought of fruity smoothies. They like to choose the fruit and are a lot of fun to make and super delicious to devour for breakfast. Eating the Rainbow can be super healthy, fun and a big hit with the kids!

My grandmother, who I lovingly called Mimi, was a passionate cook! All of her meals were made from scratch, and boy was she one heck of a cook! I wanted to use one of her classic recipes as inspiration for my illustration, and to share her wonderful recipe with everyone!
Much to my chagrin, and beyond my mortal ability to use denial to cancel it out, I'm a delicate flower when it comes to food and have allergies that render me blank, fatigued, and bed-ridden. This state of functioning is contra-indicated to writing and art-making so when I find a life giving, brain refreshing, delicious recipe such as this one, it is just nice.
So in honor of impending Spring, here's a recipe for a salad I just gathered and devoured, that is delicious AND healthy. Because I know some of you are delicate flowers too. Enjoy!
This rich-but-zesty snack has no refined sugar - it's sweet enough to be dessert, but also a perfectly acceptable breakfast choice, if you're into that kind of thing (I know I am!). Pair with coffee or tea and some fresh fruit, or enjoy all by itself, straight out of the pan.
Growing up, my parents would always cut up fruit and de-shell nuts for us, as sort of a post-supper snack. My mother would carefully cut up chilled seasonal fruit and brew a pot of chrysanthemum tea. My father would use his own teeth to crack open salted peanuts and sunflower seeds for us, while frying up prawn crackers at the stove.
They're just simple cut fruit and nuts, but somehow they don't taste the same when I'm just preparing them by myself. That they are meticulous labors of love are what make them taste special.
