I’ve been on a bit of a plantain kick lately. They are so wonderful! Grilled, roasted, fried… they’re like, the new Sweet Potato. No, just kidding. I still love my yams but plantains have been kickin it in my kitchen for the past month or so. Here’s a heavenly little fruit salad that includes my beloved plantains. Make sure to get ripe ones (at the very least make sure they are yellow/blackish and a bit soft.)

Enjoy this refreshing snack after an intense workout or maybe bring it to your weekend BBQ.

Goes great with some Jerk Chicken and sautéed greens!

Tropical Fruit Salad with Mint

1 ripe plantain

Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
