Fruit Loops

August 8, 2012

Goin’ loopy over fruit this morning! Blackberries, blueberries, nectarine. Cereal and milk are in there somewhere : ) And almond butter to top it off.

I will miss these summer fruits when they are gone – although fall apples are quite the delicious snack. I have missed apples this summer. And of course there’s the trusty banana – year-round delicious.

I swear my preferences change daily now. Black coffee now tastes too watery/gritty – and iced coffee with milk has been tasting better and better. It might just be that I’ve switched decaf brands and one is better black and the other…brown.

A wonderful Wednesday to you all!

I will miss all of the summer fruit too… Berries and peaches are some of my all time favorites!

That is quite the bowl of fruity goodness! I eat apples every day but I’ll be glad when I can get them locally and they taste sweeter.

Now THOSE are the kinds of fruit loops I like!! I am thoroughly enjoying all summer fruits right now too, and I loathe the idea of fall coming, but one good thing about that means Pink Lady and Honeycrisp apples will be (hopefully) less expensive!!!

I think the brand of coffee makes ALL the difference for sure. But I’m sure your hormones aren’t helping that. ;)

Me too! I’ll definitely be missing the in season summer fruits. BUT— Pumpkin season is just around the corner and I know you’re pumped! Happy Wednesday!

Summer fruits are SOO good! I have never loved blackberries like I have this year–they’ve been incredible! What decaf brand are you using these days? My Trager Brothers is almost gone and I’m not sure what to get next…

I got the TB! I like it, but I like the Shenandoah Joe’s more. I want to try SJ’s Ethiopian – Dave says that’s the best one

11 Lindsey @ Pas de Deux August 8, 2012 at 10:04 am

Ok, I will look for SJ’s Ethiopian decaf today! Thanks for the recommendation

I love blackberries- hands down, my favorite fruit! I have put nut butters in my oatmeal for years now but never thought to put it in cereal until I saw it on your blog. Genius!

I’m going to miss the summer fruits too! I’ve been loving plums and nectarines so much lately :)

18 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats August 8, 2012 at 9:38 am

I never give up my apples! I eat at least one apple a day, it’s my favorite fruit! But I certainly love the berries this summer, I’ve been going through them like crazy!

19 Alison August 8, 2012 at 9:40 am

I’m also excited for the apples..and pomegranates! That looks like a wonderful breakfast :)

I’m going to cry when these summer fruits are gone. I don’t know how I’m going to live without them! Especially peaches…

My palate doesn’t feel ready for apples and pumpkins yet. I need to get ready!

21 Elisabeth August 8, 2012 at 10:00 am

I will definitely miss the nectarines & peaches & raspberries, but I do love a good crispy fall apple!

Summer Fruits are the best and these look gorgeous!

23 Chantal August 8, 2012 at 10:54 am

I feel the same way about summer fruits – this morning I had strawberries, blueberries, a lame peach, and banana on overnight oats :)

I love berries so much, & will miss them as well!

Tastebuds are such fickle things, arent they. And with coffee, I find that to be the case, even when not pregnant. Strong one day is weak the next. Bitter one day is perfect the next. Go figure!

I had blackberries atop my breakfast too. YUMMMMM!!

you are a fruit machine! my fave summer treat is the mango. BUT they are such a pain to cut that I rarely go for them. sigh.

I have to share that my 2-year old daughter, Amelia.. saw the picture above of the fruit and coffee and she said “Look! It’s blueberries and mommy’s coffee!” Apparently I eat the same thing once or twice.. a week. haha.

No oddly shaped produce this morning? I love that you can’t even see your cereal through the layer of berries! :)

You should have seen the nectarine…….

I kid : )

Love summer fruits, so sad when they’re gone! What’s your favourite almond butter out of interest?

Reply

35 KathEats August 8, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Touch choice. My two favorites are total opposites: Naturally Nutty and Barney Butter…although I feel like I”m missing one!?

Reply

36 Michelle (Peachy Palate) August 8, 2012 at 2:43 pm

We don’t have either here, did you have a martha one or something it was called, an almond butter? iherb don’t have natually nutty or barney…Do you like justins? Just got my first order..chocolate almond and maple almond and chocolate hazelnut on its way!

37 KathEats August 8, 2012 at 4:11 pm

Yes, I do like Maranatha a lot – the no stir ones. They melt beautifully in hot oats! I like Justin’s too

Reply

38 Michelle (Peachy Palate) August 9, 2012 at 12:29 am

Yay! I ordered some Maranatha from Swanson Health, just got shipment confirmation, I’ll be drowning in nut butter! :)

39 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin August 8, 2012 at 2:35 pm

I’m going to miss summer fruit too. Raspberries are already out of season here, which makes me so sad!

Hi Kath. I’m 10 weeks pregnant. Is it okay to drink coffee while pregnant? Thanks!

Reply

41 KathEats August 8, 2012 at 4:11 pm

All the research I’ve read says yes – just a cup or so a day – is OK. But best to check with your doctor!
