School week mornings are a little bit crazy in my house. Waking up drowsy kiddos, getting them dressed, hair brushing, breakfast making, lunch prepping…sound familiar? It just gets so busy and sometimes overwhelming enough that I forget to feed myself. I started making this Morning Fruit Salad at the beginning of my week and enjoy a little each morning before heading out for drop offs. It’s delicious and easy to put together. And paired with a night of restful sleep, helps me to tackle my crazy mornings.

To start, I peel and separate several mandarin oranges.

Next I half some red grapes.

And then I quarter a bunch of strawberries.

Slice up some bananas.

Dice up a few apples.

To finish it all with a little burst of tang, I halve a lime, squeeze the juice over the top of the fruit and gently fold it in.

This can be enjoyed right away, but I prefer to cover it and chill it overnight so all the flavors marry together.

This bright and fresh Morning Fruit Salad is one of my favorites and a healthy way to start my morning. Armed with a good night of sleep and a bowl of this delicious salad, I can conquer any hurdle that comes my way.

Emergen-Zzz is one of my tried and true ways to ensure I get a good night’s sleep. It’s a natural sleep aid that comes in the form of a melatonin infused drink mix featured in delicious flavors such as Peach and Nighttime Berry. MY husband, a shift worker, relies on this during his grave and swing shifts.

    Getting a great night’s sleep is so very important but most of us don’t consider how important it is to maximize that night’s rest with a great morning routine. I love this idea! #client
