    Good. I used the walnuts, and added some honey to sweeten it even more.

    Even my husband loved this – I made it with pecans because I like them better then walnuts. But, a great idea and a great easy snack.

    I didn’t have an orange so I used an apple and a banana cut into bite size pieces, some chopped walnuts, some craisins, some raisins, and then the cinnamon. This was incredible!!! So unbelievably easy yet nutritious and delicious.

    What kind of apples should one use? Do some bake better then others?

    • @Jennifer – Whatever apples you love the most. :)

    Do you bake this or cook on the stove?

    • @balcoser – You actually don’t need to bake or cook it – you just eat it raw as fruit salad.

  6. This is the easiest thing to make, a basic fruit salad. Which you don’t even need a recipe for, just chuck some fruit in a bowl.

  7. A squeeze of lemon juice is nice, and raisins too!

    Hi, why does this have the word chicken next to it?

    • Neely Quinn

      Natashj4@gmail.com – I’m assuming you mean that you’re looking at the meal plan and it says to have “fruit salad with cinnamon, chicken” for a snack? It just means that you should have some fruit salad and some of the chicken that we suggested you pre-cook as a snack today. Does that make sense?

    Thank you!

    Does it matter the types of fruit in this fruit salad? Or any is acceptable?

    • Neely Quinn

      Jessica – In my opinion, any fruit is acceptable, unless you have a metabolic disorder (diabetes, pre-diabetes) and you just can’t handle high-glycemic fruits. In that case, stick to berries.

  11. Not bad at all. Thought this was a good snack! Interesting mix of flavors… I wouldn’t have thought to put cinnamon and oranges together.
