In a fruit rut?
Do the same fruits wind up in your grocery cart every week? Perhaps you might give dragon fruit a try. Check out this gorgeous fruit!Friedas.com contacted me to see if I would like some of their delicious dragon fruit and of course, I said, “YES!” Friedas has a nutrition campaign called, “fear no fruit”, in an effort to help consumers try new and unusual produce! I love this concept. Check out more here!
Russ and I purchase a big bowl of pre-cut fruit at Whole Foods just about every week. I know I would save a few bucks if I did the dicing myself…but the reality is…I definitely eat more fruit when I leave that job to somebody else. 🙂 So for us, it’s worth the extra money. Fortunately, so many fruits are allowed on the low FODMAP diet…just don’t eat a fruit salad the size of your head! One serving per sitting!
I tend to be a creature of habit when it comes to buying fruit, how about you? I do, however, LOVE trying new produce when I find it… and dragon fruit is one of those fruits that lured me in!
Dragon fruit is a low FODMAP fruit option (yay!) and has a mild but tasty flavor.
