    It seems to me like you have been drastically cutting back calories lately. Is there a reasoning for this? Doesn’t your body require more fuel for all the exercise you do? I am genuinely curious. I don’t work out as much as you and eat a TON more, and I’m thin!

      I don’t feel like I have been drastically cutting back. My breakfast consisted of a fuji apple, strawberries, blueberries, 1/2 cup of yogurt with PB2 (2 or 3 tablespoons?) mixed in, cereal, and raisins. I’d say that is a balanced meal. I’m happy that you eat a ton more than I do and keep thin, unfortunately my body is not the same as yours. I wish it was, but I have to watch what I eat (even when marathon training) to make sure my jeans still fit at the end of the day. I don’t count calories or crazily measure out ingredients – I just eat what fills me up and stop there.

        Thank you for your response. I definitely understand that everyone’s bodies are different and require different fueling. However, from reading your blog lately it seems like you are not eating enough to fuel for all your training. My reason for making this point is because if you are under-fueling it could lead to injury or even weight-gain. Just something to consider. Your “desserts” and “large snacks” lately have just seemed so tiny! Maybe you are eating more than you picture?

    Love the fruit nacho idea. A little honey over the top…yum! I love PB2 as well. I use it as a mix in with plain Greek yogurt, in oatmeal, even my oat-free oats (which I love to have as post workout breakfast). I may give a variation of this a try tomorrow.

    “I even ate the apple slices just as I would regular nachos – with my hands.” – sorry, I may be misinterpreting this… but does this mean you wouldn’t *normally* eat apple slices with your hands?! :O

    Your breakfast looks gorgeous by the way and not at all messy! 😀

      I just meant that since it looked so messy that I thought I was going to eat the apple slices with a fork, but I ended up digging in with my hands. 🙂

    That is a great idea, oh I love Pinterest! I bet it would be really good to cut the apples in super thin slices like potato chips and serve that way! You could probably get more toppings onto each bite. 🙂

    Looks delicious, but I think the word “Nachos” itself is irretrievably linked to spicy savory foods for me.

    ahaha. The first commenter cracks me up, because I have not been thinking that at all! And that is why I don’t blog about what I eat every day. You are brave, sista! Constant judgement and ridicule. You handled it will grace as always. 😉

    I have some of that PB2 that I haven’t used in a while. Maybe I should break it out for this meal!!

    That is such a cute idea. I love throwing chocolate chips or sprinkles on breakfast. It makes it pretty and feels like something special!

    Why have I not thought of PB yogurt dip before?! Sounds so good, and I even have it all in the house! Looks like I will be trying that today!

    I am brand new on pinterest and Im so stinking confused all of the time on there. 🙂 The fruit nachos looks good though. Thanks for yet another good dining out suggestion. I feel like a total loser writing these down but I literally know nothing about Tampa and Im about to stinking live there. Youre kind of saving me some trial and error. Happy Saturday!

    I love the idea of apple nachos for breakfast, great idea! I sometimes make “apple sundaes” by chopping up an apple and adding some choc sauce, pb and granola, etc. but I might need to try out the nacho version….
