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. ;)

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. :)

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. ;)

Breakfast time!

An old favorite: plain greek yogurt + almond butter + Kashi Go Lean Crisp + walnuts in a cantaloupe bowl.

Eaten with a spoon while checking my email. :)

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.

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!!

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 :)

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.

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!

Pineapple is by far my favorite fruit. Things to do with pineapple: dried with homemade granola and/trail mix; cottage cheese mix ins; pineapple muffins; pineapple sorbet; grilled with chicken; grilled with ice cream; pineapple shortcake, pineapple upside down cake (recently had and LOVED). I hope I win!! Can’t wait to hear all about Flying Pig, that race is on my bucket list. :-)

I once took pineapple wedges to the movies!

I for sure think the people that cleaned the theater were cursing my bad habit :(
