Easy Breakfast: Strawberries with Honey, Nuts, and Dried Fruit

By: Ariana Palmieri
This is my go-to breakfast when the weather starts warming up. It’s so simple, light, and tasty. It literally takes five minutes to make and is so rewarding. If you’re looking for a light, healthy alternative to your bacon-egg-and-cheese, you’ve found it!

You will need:

  • A cup/container of some sort
  • Strawberries (I use 5)
  • Honey (I use 2 scoops)
  • An assortment of nuts and dried fruit (I use pistachios, almonds, dried cranberries and cherries)
  • A spoon
  1. Take the strawberries and wash them off good (I recommend buying organic for these. Have you seen EWG’s Dirty Dozen?). Simply put them in a bowl, fill it up with water, then dump out the water. Repeat twice.
  2. Pick off the leafy ends of the strawberries, then cut the strawberries up into pieces. Place the pieces in the cup.
  3. Grab a handful of your mix of nuts and dried fruits and place it in the cup as well.
    Note: To simplify this step even further, just buy your favorite trail mix so you don’t have to buy the nuts and dried fruit separately.
  4. Add two scoops of honey to your mixture. Tada! Your breakfast is ready.
