muesli or high-fiber cereal with plain low-fat yogurt,
slices of fresh fruit, and a sprinkling of nuts drizzled
with honey - delicious!
2. Thread strawberries, grapes, and cubes of Kiwi fruit,

never tried before, or try an old favorite prepared in a new

zesty squeeze of lemon for a breakfast treat.

peanut butter along the inside of a celery stick. Paste a

your heart's content.
There you have it. Now you have no excuse for not getting
your 5 a day! Replace any fruit or veg not available or not
to your liking with any alternative of your choice. Enjoy!
