Healthy eating

  • - This fruit salad with pineapple, kiwi fruits and candied cherries is one of my favorite dessert in the cold months, and when I have to close a fish-based menu where it is not always easy to choose the cake. It is not the usual Everest in calories and fat like many other desserts. The only thing you have to be careful is not to overdo with candied fruit. One hundred grams distributed among 8 people are not so many. But things could be very different, if you increase their amount :)
