Wow, I’m not even that upset that it’s Monday, because I had a fantastic weekend! From attending the opening day of the Farmer’s Market and indulging in ice cream and mojitos on Saturday, to a leisurely day spent with family and listening to thunderstorms on Sunday – it was a blast. :D It got me very excited for summer!
I am keeping it totally real in the fruit department today…my fridge and countertops are so packed with produce, I could practically run a stand out of my kitchen! Starting with breakfast – Blueberry Cantaloupe Overnight Oats!
In the mix:
- 1 Fat-free Raspberry Yogurt
- 1 banana
- 1/4 cup old fashioned oatmeal
- 1/2 Tablespoon chia seeds
- Frozen blueberries
I smashed my banana into the oats today so they’d be SUPER thick and creamy.
Frozen fruit is so handy to have. It’s one of those “oh yeah!” foods. As in, “oh yeah! I have blueberries in the freezer, I might as well throw those in!”
This might go down as one of the best bowls of OO ever. SUPER thick, creamy, sweet and chewy!
The fruit is overtaking lunch, too. I packed a big, fruity, Fruit Salad, fresh pineapple and some popcorn!
I’m just totally loving the colors of this salad!
In the mix:
- Mixed greens
- Dried apricots
- Sliced almonds
I once had a fruit salad with a banana in it. It was actually really good – but I think one banana a day is fine for me. :)
I chopped this pineapple up yesterday – omg, it is literally the sweetest pineapple I’ve ever tasted! Sweeter than candy! Need a tutorial on how to cut one up? Check this out. You’ll never buy canned again. ;)
Pineapple buying tip: the ones that are more yellow than green, are usually the sweetest. Also, try plucking out one of the fronds from the top of the pineapple. If it comes out easily, it’s usually ripe and ready!
Some Lime + Salt Popcorn will be the salty relief to my sweet day. :)
Time to get this party started – come back tonight for a very exciting announcement!!
If you could only eat sweet or savory foods for the rest of your life – which would you choose?
Ugh, this is TOUGH. But I’m going to go with…savory!!
