Kelly's Sunrise Fruit Salad

Let's just say that I was thrilled when Kelly from Eat Yourself Skinny agreed to guest post on Jin Fitness. She is the sweetest person ever.  I have been reading (stalking) her blog for months and I'm obsessed with ALL of her healthy recipes.  Kelly can make just about any recipe "skinny".   She even includes the nutritional content AND Weight Watchers points in EVERY  post!

Let's give a round applause to Kelly and be sure to head over to her blog pronto :)

Hello there lovely readers of Jin Fitness! I’m Kelly from Eat Yourself Skinny and my blog is pretty much all things yummy that you can indulge in without worrying about the calories…um most days. Sometimes I’d rather just eat chocolate cake and run it off later, but hey that’s what Jin’s blog is for right?!

Jin is pretty much my inspiration. I mean not only is she freakin’ gorgeous, but she stays so incredibly fit and has fabulous style! A serious trifecta y’all. Any time I need some motivation to get my butt off the couch and into the gym, I just head over here for a little boost {but then I start reading all her posts and forget that I was supposed to go to the gym which is why my abs will never look like hers…EVER} But because I DO like eating healthy, I wanted to share with you one of my favorite breakfast recipes!
Folks this would be my Sunrise Fruit Salad and no it doesn’t have to be summer to enjoy this dish! This breakfast is low in calories, low in fat and is diabetic friendly! Feel free to substitute fresh cranberries for blueberries since they’re in season, but any fruit combination would taste delicious. I just love how easy this recipe is to whip up and is perfect to grab on the go when you have to work. Oh yes and the addition of honey will rock your world!
I would recommend cutting your fruit up the night before and pre-mixing the yogurt combo so that it’s all ready to eat the next day. Super simple and oh so tasty! This recipe calls for plain Greek yogurt, but you could substitute all sorts of flavors, such as lemon, to spice this up a bit. Feel free to throw in some granola too for crunchy texture, the possibilities are endless!
