Good Morning: Apricot & Berry Fruit Salad

Hi, gang (as my dad would say)! Sorry the postings have been non-existent lately. I had a whole plan to keep caught up while I was away and well, it fell to the wayside. As I got more and more relaxed, I decided to totally unplug. And now, after 2 weeks in Ireland, a trip down south, and a weekend at one of my favorite seaside destinations.....I am feeling refreshed and ready to open up the computer again. Hope July was a great month for you all!

Last weekend, Vic and I packed up a picnic for an early breakfast at the beach. Embracing all the ripe, juicy summer stone fruit, I mixed us up a fruit salad that included blueberries, blackberries, unsweetened coconut, golden raisins and sliced almonds. Loaded with fiber and anti-oxidants, this simple to make breakfast is deliciously sweet and substantial. It's also perfect for when you are on-the-go. Just make it the night before, place in mason jars and keep it in the fridge. On Monday, I tossed a jar in my bag and we ate it on the train back to the city.
