How to Slice An Apple


Good morning!

Well the weather literally couldn’t be more different today than it was last Saturday! Where there was sunshine and warm temps, there’s now clouds and cold. What a tease!

I took the cloudy skies as an invitation to sleep in a bit, then got up and did my 45 minute Power Vinyasa #2 yoga class from It went by SO quickly! Since my heart was already pumping, I decided to continue the workout by CLEANING my casa (yes, I do consider cleaning a workout!) 

Carpets: swept.

Surfaces: dusted.

Rooms: organized.

Mucho mejor! (sorry, I have pupusas on my brain :( ) The I got down to bidness – breakfast! A Sliced Pink Lady Apple & Peanut Butter. 


Every time I show a sliced apple on my blog, someone asks me how I do it, so I took some pictures of the process. First wash & dry your apple, then cut the quarters off of the core.




Then simply slice! That’s it. :)


No core, no muss, no fuss. It may seem easier to just eat the apple whole (which, I guess it is) but I prefer slices. The apple lasts way longer that way, and I always seem to get it stuck in my teeth when I bite into one whole.


I served my apple slices with some melted Trader Joe’s Peanut Butter. This stuff is SUPER hard right out of the fridge, so I melted in the micro for 9 seconds. Creamy bliss!


I love this combo even more than apples and caramel!

Oh, we didn’t end up watching The Men Who Stare at Goats last night. I couldn’t keep my eyes open and nobody really had anything good to say about it – so I decided not to waste my time. I’d rather waste $1 than two and a half hours of my life!

I’m off to shower and get my day started. There are errands to be run!!!

See ya’!
