Win Whole Foods Pineapples!

by Meghann on April 10, 2012

Good Morning!

I’m loving this beautiful spring weather we’ve been enjoying in Tampa lately. It almost makes up for our warm winter. πŸ˜‰

My goal for this morning’s run was 6 miles with negative splits. There was just one minor blip at the beginning when I had to turn around a quarter mile out due to an ill fitting top (I’ve been spoiled with well supported built-in-bra tank tops and accidentally grabbed an older tank top this morning that wasn’t as supportive – nothing a quick sports bra change couldn’t fix), but that was it.

For the negative splits, I tried to come down 15 seconds with each mile. I started at a natural pace and went down from there. Since it usually takes me a while to warm up – and my last miles tend to be faster – I enjoyed it. πŸ™‚

My final splits:

  • Mile 1: 8:46
  • Mile 2: 8:22
  • Mile 3: 8:15
  • Mile 4: 8:04
  • Mile 5: 7:53
  • Mile 6: 8:52 <- cool down

Now if only I can pull off negative splits at Flying Pig next month. πŸ˜‰

Breakfast time!

Eaten with a spoon while checking my email. πŸ™‚

Baby, let’s face it, I’m addicted to pineapple. I prefer to eat it cut up and with my hands. Getting down with the pineapple juice.

I love grilled pineapple. Especially served with grilled peppers, onions, and chicken. It’s such a healthy summer meal.

3 Emily G. April 10, 2012 at 9:58 am

I’m not entering bc 1) I’m allergic to pineapple and 2) I don’t live near Whole Foods. Anyway, the best way to eat pineapple is with canadian bacon on a pizza. And grilled – oh, it’s good grilled, too!!

4 Hope @ With A Side Of Hope April 10, 2012 at 9:58 am

I love pineapple! I like eating it just the way it is in chunks or perhaps dipped in chocolate. Yum πŸ™‚

The best way is dipped in salt water while on a boat in Hawaii! The combination of sweet and salty was delicious…. or maybe it was the fact I was in Hawaii πŸ™‚

8 Lindsey April 10, 2012 at 10:00 am

I’m going to be honest, I would have grand plans to put it in yogurt or smoothies or other fun things. But I would eat it cut up in probably less than 24 hours.

9 Meghan R April 10, 2012 at 10:01 am

I love pineapple! I think my favorite way to eat it is on ham πŸ™‚

16 Alexandra Bryar April 10, 2012 at 10:07 am

38 Laurel C April 10, 2012 at 10:21 am

I love when pineapples reappear in the grocery stores cause they’re great in smoothies, fruit salads, or just on they’re own cut up in chunks!

Grilling it! By far the best way to eat it.

44 Julianna April 10, 2012 at 10:26 am

The best way to eat pineapple is chomping on a whole half of a pineapple with just your hands for utensils and juices dripping down your chin. Eat while floating down the Nile river during an afternoon break from your white water rafting adventure. Yes, that actually happened to me and was without a doubt the most delicious pineapple of my life!

55 Christa April 10, 2012 at 10:37 am

I really enjoy pineapple. I love it plain, but my favorite is to have it on pizza with pepperoni. Its my version of Hawaiin pizza, but with pepperoni instead of ham, because i’m not a huge fan.

I love pineapple just by itself. But a really delicious recipe is to make twice baked sweet potatos with coconut milk and top with pineapple and broil so it gets a little crspy. and Some coconut butter on top! Delicous!!

63 Cait's Plate April 10, 2012 at 10:47 am

I love eating pineapple on car rides home from my in-laws. They always buy me this great fruit mix from a local deli and I can never wait to get home to break into it! It makes the 3 hours fly by πŸ™‚
My husband also brought me a pineapple on our first date. He thought flowers were cliche and knew I was a health nut, so he went with pineapple. I was instantly smitten!
