When we think of Memorial Day, we think of all the brave soldiers who defended our freedoms and the constitution of the United States. We are happy and proud to be a part of this great nation. Many people also think about nice weather and a family BBQ that brings friends and family together!
Instead of padding your dessert table with cakes and candy, try something much more refreshing. Fruit is perfect for a warm summer day because it cools you down without all the unwanted added sugar.
Packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber, fruit truly does a body good! This weekend, skip the junk food and choose a healthy and creative snack.
This tooth healthy dessert is loaded with Vitamin C, which is particularly helpful in keeping teeth and gums strong and healthy.
