Good afternoon everyone!
Glad you liked the birthday post – what a fun night we had :)
This morning I was up BRIGHT AND EARLY to come into work to get some stuff done!! Before I left though, I fueled. Banana, Apricot & Fig Oatmeal:
I literally sighed with happiness as I ate this bowl – there is something about this exact combo that just makes my day. It is SOOO delicious! The mix:
- 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
- 1/2 cup each of milk and water
- splash of cinnamon and vanilla
- 1 medium banana
- 2 dried apricots
- 2 dried figs
- toasted coconut and almonds
- sugar-free maple syrup
Try that exact combo – and you are guaranteed a delicious and happy morning – every time!!
A pocket of fruit!
For lunch I packed a salad!
- Mixed greens
- 1 large cucumber (yes the whole thing!!!)
- diced pineapple
- sliced red onion
So fresh and crunchy!
I love adding sweet things to my salads – the pineapple is the perfect addition!
I also packed a sliced Braeburn apple:
And some kiwi fruit! I LOVE kiwi – I think it tastes a lot like bananas…anyone else??
Doesn’t kiwi have those most goregous natural color? I wonder why they always say “lime green” – what about “kiwi green”?? Is the extra syllable just too much?!
I hope everyone is having a fabulous day! It’s HOT outside – and I’m slated for a 5.15 mile run this afternoon – and I am SOOOO sore from Zumba today! I’m always more sore two days after I work out hard core, than I am the day after. Anyone else like that?
How’s the weather where you are?!
