Bring Fruit to Potlucks or Church Dinners

We recently attending our Mother's Day church cookout, where the men of the church put together a meal for the women. They cooked catfish, hamburgers, hot dogs, tons of cakes and confections.

Usually, everyone brings something to the dinner. People often pick up cookies or cokes or something processed. I think blueberries are a great food to bring because they have so many vitamins and antioxidants in them. So I will be bringing blueberries, strawberries, and other wonderful real food to all the meals I attend. I also bring them to my mother who is in a rehabilitation facility. She loves them.

Everyone have a great spring and summer!

I always bring fruit.

Fruit is an expensive gift to bring. Cakes and cookies are cheaper. However, fruit is healthy, and if you eat a healthy diet, it is cheaper in the long run.

I absolutely agree! It is my new of like 'pay now or pay later' since eating healthy foods is one way to save on health costs in the future ;)

Thank you for commenting and have a blessed day!

Sometimes this can be a problem at smaller gatherings because usually everyone has a "planned" item to bring but it sure sounds like a good idea when going to larger potluck dinners.

I would much prefer to see fruit on the table than a lot of desserts.

Very good idea. Thanks

Betty

You are welcome ;)

Most of the dinners I attend have an amazingly large number of cakes and other confections. I would rather see healthy food than all that sugar on the table. They are good though. Just not good for my health ;)

My rule of thumb is to make something that I will not be unhappy if I wind up eating it. Fruit and veggies fit that bill nicely.

I do too, I bring things that will not have a negative impact on my health if I end up consuming the whole package ;)
