Great Fruit Platter for any occasion.
Whether you are planning a fancy reception or a casual get-together, use fruit to make a stunning and edible centerpiece. In some cases, the centerpiece can also serve as dessert.
2-1/4 cups fresh or frozen raspberries, rinsed or partially thawed, if frozen
2 tablespoons orange liqueur or fresh orange juice
1 3-pound fresh pineapple, peeled, cored, quartered lengthwise and cut crosswise into thin slices
2 navel oranges, peeled and sliced crosswise into thin slices
6 kiwi fruit, peeled and thinly sliced
In a food process or blender, combine raspberries and orange liqueur. Puree until smooth. Cover and chill until ready to serve. On a large platter, overlap slices of each fruit, starting with pineapple at each end of the platter and orange slices down the middle. Fill in the remaining area with kiwi slices. Cover and chill until ready to serve. To serve, drizzle raspberry sauce over fruit.

|Walking to Improve your Risk Profile|
|According to the American Heart Association, women who walk briskly for at least three hours per week or exercise vigorously for 1.5 hours per week, cut their risk of heart disease by 30%-40%. And men, exercise reduces your risks too. If it's hard finding time to walk, try waking up a little earlier. Walk before your day takes over, or during part of your lunch break.|

|Using Discernment in these Chaotic Times|
|In these times of extremes on our planet I have realized the importance of using discernment. There are so many conflicting opinions and even supposed ‘facts’ that are being fed to us via the myriad of information technology that can be very confusing.|
Description: Cabbage is chock full of nutrients including vitamin C and indoles, important cancer-fighting compounds. In addition, red cabbage also contains anthocyanins, the purple pigment with strong antioxidant activity commonly found in blueberries. In the winter months, cabbage is an abundant nutritional resource when other fresh produce is either expensive or unavailable. This recipe calls for a lot of salt, but it is used in this dish to soften the cabbage. Then it is thoroughly rinsed off so the recipe doesn't provide too much sodium. This coleslaw is colorful and makes a delightful accompaniment to any meat, fish or vegetarian main dish. The garnish of minced scallions and toasted sesame seeds brings out the flavor of the slaw and adds additional crunch.
