    Paleo Coconut Shrimp with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce (Paleo/GF/DF)

This simple fruit salad highlights the red fruits of the season: juicy watermelon, tangy raspberry oranges, sweet strawberries and perfectly refreshing pomegranate seeds.

Or sliced carrots look like eyes and they are loaded in vitamin A which is great for your vision.
