Wednesday is FRUIT day

by Joanne on April 29, 2009

It’s only “Fruit” day because our Harry and David fruits arrived yesterday.  They call it “Epitome of the Tropics” with Sunrise Papayas, Tropical Sunset Mango, and a beautiful green lime to zest up the dishes made with the other fruits. Delish…

dscn0796The Papaya:  A mild character of a sweet melon. Use it for fancy desserts and mixed fruit salads. It will remain firm and pliant when cooked, especially in stir frys or kabobs over the grill. The gray-black seeds have a peppery taste and will add distinction to garnishes and salad dressings. 

The Mango:  Ideal for slicing and cubing. It is sweet and honeyed – never pithy- with a light lemony fragrance. 

Remember – these are tropical fruit and do not like the cold so they will not keep long in the refrigerator.  If they are not ripe when purchased a couple of days on the counter top should help ripen them.

dscn0799This mornings breakfast: Fresh Mango.  Mango Shake. Bob’s Red Mill 5 Grain Cereal ( the 5 grains are whole grain oats, wheat, rye, barley, and triticale plus flaxseed) made with a Vanilla maple tea bag, cinnamon and sprinkled with coconut (still in the tropics 😉 ).

The workout: 40 minutes of Elliptical. 30 minutes working legs. 3+ mile run with the pooch.

Great morning…the mango helps.

Have a great day!
