Nuts About Berries Zupas Copycat Salad recipe is one of the most delicious salads ever. I could eat it every day. I love the taste of the blackberries, strawberries, raspberries and the coated almonds. The almonds are so delicious and can be eaten without the guilt.
I do not feel bad because they have coconut oil, cinnamon, and maple syrup. I made this salad for our family get together the other day and it was all that I could do to keep my grand kids from eating all of the berries before I got them into the salad. They do love their berries. My weakness is the candied almonds.
We celebrated Pioneer Day this week. I was thinking about what kind of pioneers we all are. We all have things that we are pioneers at. I have had health issues for about ten years and I am a pioneer at trying to find a way to deal with Lymes disease.
In 2008, I became so sick I could hardly move. I was tired all the time and I felt like I had the flu. My legs had terrible pains in them, and my right arm hurt so bad that I could hardly stand it. I wasn’t able to sleep at night and it took me over a year to get a diagnosis. They put me on medication for the pain and it really helped me, however, I did not like the medication because it made me so loopy that I could hardly think straight.
One thing that I did was change the way I ate; I ate a lot more fresh vegetables and fruits. So I do love this Nuts About Berries Zupas Copycat Salad. I just started making healthier choices and I found out that I could live without a lot of unhealthy foods. I have gone back to eating sugar, I just try not to eat it too often.
And I must say that I was able to significantly decrease the amount of medication that I was on; I started with six tablets a day and now I am on one a day. My health is a lot better than it was and I have tried to keep a better outlook on life. I am always trying to help my kids with their health and sometimes they listen and sometimes they don’t.
I just hope that they do not have to go through the same things that I have, but if they do, I will be here for them. I had a lot of family members that were pioneers, and I could never have walked the path that they walked. But I am sure that they look down at us and wonder how we do what we do in this ever-changing world.
We are so blessed to have so many different options now a days. When you go to the store, the sky is the limit. However, I try to do most of my shopping on the outside perimeter of the store. And, there are even some pretty good choices at some of the restaurants.
I do get a little picky when it comes to eating out because what we eat is not a diet, it is a way of life. I love Nuts About Berries Zupas Copycat Salad, and I love making it myself because I know just exactly what is in it. Try it and I think that you will love it as much as we do. Take care of your health and enjoy your summer.
