Tropical Cereal

by Joanne on April 6, 2009

Tasting the tropics at breakfast by adding pineapple, papaya, banana and mango mint puree to hot cereal and a vanilla protein shake.  Just give me the sunshine and crystal blue water.  The cereal was cooked with the fruit and cinnamon was also added.  There was just a hint of sweetness detectable in the cereal, but the real reward was getting a chunk of pineapple or papaya in a surprise spoonful.  Yum!  The fruit in the shake was very tasty.  The mint taste stood out.



dscn0570The breakfast was well deserved.  Up at 4 AM to complete a really good workout. 

  • 15 minutes each: Rowing + Running + Elliptical. Total 45 minutes aerobics.
  • 35 minutes of heavier weights for back and triceps.
  • 36 minute walk with Shane.

Last night’s DVD was “Slumdog Millionaire”.  It’s very embarrassing to admit, but I fell asleep about 1/4 way into the movie.   Some of the scenes were getting to me so I closed my eyes and …. “what?! It’s over????”

Happy Monday All!  Is it a short week for you too?   Sue and Sam leave to spend Easter with my parents in S.C. so Sue won’t be in from Thursday through next week…poor me!!  But THIS week is only a 4 day week. Yahoo!  That only means one extra day to get chores done. Maybe I shouldn’t be so excited.   

Have a great Monday!
