Fruit Arrangements Make Healthy Contributions for Pot Luck Dinners

By: The Hale Groves Team | On: | Category: Gift Ideas Healthy Eating

The next time you are attending a pot luck dinner, and the hostess asks you to bring a dessert, choose a fruit arrangement instead of a high-calorie sugary dessert that will be inches on everyone’s waistlines. While sugar may taste good, it quickly goes to the waist and creates a false sense of feeling full. Instead of empty calories, fruit arrangements help fill a gap in the appetite while you wait for the hostess to serve dinner. In addition, those who are on diets or unable to eat sugary desserts will also be able to enjoy something before dinner and for dessert.

The first thing many people think is, “No one wants fruit arrangements at a party. They expect cakes and other sweets.” While this may be true of some people, the trend of eating healthy is catching on in many areas, especially for those party goers who are approaching middle age and can no longer burn off calories at the same speed they once did. Not only that, but many people begin eating healthy at an early age, such as fresh citrus, and just don’t have the desire with cakes, pies and other high calorie sweets.

If you are going to choose fruit arrangements when you attend pot luck dinners, you want to vary what you bring. Choosing something different is not a difficult task to accomplish since there are so many different fruits and designs you can choose. You can also choose dipped fruits instead of just using food color to create the sensation you want. Of course, if you are not creative enough to build your own edible fruit arrangements, you can look for a vendor in your area for those last minute trips-for the majority of your orders you may wish to choose an online vendor for a better selection and better pricing.

While it is natural to assume you will not receive a good reception by bringing fruit arrangements instead of cakes and cookies, you will quickly learn that people in general are just looking for the sweet taste, and if they can obtain it from fruit, they will relish the idea. The idea is to choose something that will be visually appealing to everyone and that everyone can enjoy. Many people choose what they are going to eat based on the way it looks, so you want to be certain your fruit arrangements have visual appeal as well as being tasty.
