Summer fruit is to die for and when the weather is hot I can think of nothing else but eating cold delicious fruit. Whenever I’m nearing the end of a particularly scorching run, all I can think of is eating lots of cold oranges, grapes and mangoes!!!
The one thing I’ve been indulging lately, however, is cherries. Yummy, gorgeous, ruby red cherries. Christmas cherries!
I usually don’t eat many cherries as they can be quite expensive. This time, however, I was lucky enough to come across a large punnet of cherries for six bucks, which was much cheaper than grapes have been lately.
Just look at how gloriously luscious they are!
I’ve also been mixing them with some other fruit for a little work snack to pick at.
One tip I’ve found with fruit? When you’ve bought them, take a little time out to rinse under some cold water (and pick them off the stalks, say, if there grapes) before popping them into a large bowl (or bowls) in the fridge so they’re there, ready for eating whenever you feel a bit peckish. I find that makes a major difference between reaching for fruit or for some instant packet of processed foods when you’re feeling lazy but in need of a snack!
