Nectarine Dreams

June 21, 2012

It sure was a pleasant night’s sleep in the humidity free house : ) But I did end up waking up at midnight wired again. I didn’t eat my almonds before bed! So I took a swig of juice and ate 10 almonds and thankfully was able to go back to sleep without any more interruptions….until this juicy nectarine tapped on my forehead!

Mixed up with greek yogurt, banana, blackberries, granola and chia seeds.

That is quite the trick with the almonds. I’m going to keep some on hand. The Mr will sometimes have bouts of not being able to turn off his brain and is up until 2am. I’m gonna see if that works for him or if it’s just a chick thing. :)

It doesn’t get much better than juicy peaches on a sizzling hot summer day. Well, maybe ice cold watermelon. Enjoy the heat and humidity. I know you love it :)

I’m ashamed to admit this…but I don’t think I’ve ever had a nectarine?!

Oh no! That’s my favorite fruit – go get one stat! ;)

Oh, yeah, nectarines are more flavorful than (most store bought) peaches, and they are also terrific grilled!

Glad you got back to sleep! I can’t imagine what being prego does to your body’s normal rhythm!

Not pregnant but the last few nights, I’ve been waking up out of hunger in the middle of the night…a handful of almonds does the trick!

Yum! I love fruit in the morning (and afternoon and evening…) :)

We’ve both been in nectarine moods lately! I made nectarine bread yesterday and posted about it today. I’m loving how ripe they are right now. Your bowl of breakfast looks delicious, as usual!!

I am not doing a good job of remembering all the amazing fruits there are in the summer! what is wrong with me?

that nectarine looks beautiful. although, I’m a peach girl. it’s the only outside of anything that I like. I used to request the fuzz from my dad on the beach. :p

Love the pears. Is it a placemat or a napkin and where did you get it? I think I may have to try the almond trick with my 6 1/2 year old daughter. She had almonds at Spanish club but I guess it wasn’t close enough to bed because she was up even later than usual with her little mind(and body) going a hundred miles an hour!

I also love the pear towel! Too cute!

18 Caroline @ After Dinner Dance June 21, 2012 at 7:47 am

I’ve never put necatarines or peaches in my overnight oats or yogurt bowls – no idea why! I had some nice and cold overnight oats for breakfast today and because it was so hot, I decided to have a little homemade cake batter frozen yogurt on the side – a great start to summer!

Fruit in a bowl is one of my favorite desserts to have nowadays. Looks beautiful and yummy!

Such acute pear placemat!

Ooo that breakfast looks colorful and so good! I need more fresh fruit!

Love how you have your breakfast sectioned in their own little ‘quads’! I just love the added crunch that chia seeds offer to my breakfast medley! Another hot one on the way…are you ready? Got my iced tea ready to go with another batch brewing!

23 Claire @ Live and Love to Eat June 21, 2012 at 8:08 am

I can’t wait to get some fresh plums or apricots at the Farmers Market – I haven’t had any yet this season but your nectarines reminded me!

I love nectarines! I do not buy nectarines much, but should put them on my grocery list more often.

A nectarine fell on your head while you were sleeping?!? Better have a talk about that with Matt!
;) I am punchy this am due to my lack of sleep. My baby decided last night for 1.5-2 hour intervals of sleep instead of his newly found routine of 2.5-3!

I love that tea towel! So pretty!

I admire your ability to keep your AC off as long as possible. I could not do that…I grew up in SC and my first “big word” when I was little was “air conditioner”. I would have to move somewhere WAY north if I couldn’t use AC when I needed it. I wake up and can’t go back to sleep if it’s too warm.

Mmm nectarines! Must buy some soon!

33 Liz @ Tip Top Shape June 21, 2012 at 10:36 am

I just bought some nectarines from the grocery store and they were nice and ripe. They just might be my favorite summer fruit!

34 Andrea June 21, 2012 at 11:26 am

That bowl of deliciousness looks.. delicious! I bought a few nectarines and plums yesterday. Those are definately fruits that I only buy in season, so when I do buy them for the first time in the summer, it’s magical! Haha! Have a great day :)

Hi! What store-bought granola is your favorite? I was buying Nature’s Path but recently noticed it has soy oil in it. Thanks!

Reply

37 KathEats June 21, 2012 at 12:22 pm

I was going to say Nature’s Path :) Or anything bulk bin

38 Jordan June 21, 2012 at 1:02 pm

Although a little pricey, I found that KIND (of KIND bars) has an awesome new super-crunchy granola in at least 4 flavors. It’s gluten free and has 5g of protein per serving. It does have some soy products in it (though not soy oil), but it has a really short ingredient list with no weird additives. So far I’ve tried Peanut Butter Whole Grain Clusters, which is not overpoweringly nutty and has some whole peanuts in it.

Funny, I had almost the same thing for my breakfast, except peach instead of nectarine and blueberries instead of blackberries. I had some honey drizzled on mine too. I so wish I had known about this almond trick when I was pregnant.

40 Angela @ Happy Fit Mama June 21, 2012 at 12:49 pm

Nectarines are the best when they are so ripe the flesh just falls off the pit. Yummmmm!

Reply

41 Elizabeth June 21, 2012 at 1:07 pm

YUM! We had a couple of ripe nectarines so I made two bowls of greek yogurt drizzled with honey, topped with chopped nectarines and some almonds. SO good. Husband and I have eggs almost every morning and this was a nice change of pace.

Yum, I love nectarines! We used to pick them every summer when I was little!

Where do you buy your chia seeds? In store or online? Thanks!

45 KathEats June 21, 2012 at 2:08 pm

Chiaseedsdirect.com – I’m due for another order and looking at my last order history, it’s been a YEAR for me to go through 2#! (Put htem in the freezer in the meantime)

You can also get them in bulk bins, but they are more expensive

47 Amanda @ flecksofgreen June 21, 2012 at 2:46 pm

What a yummy little mixture of goodies you made there! It all looks sweet, crunchy and refreshing…all in one!

48 Sarah @ Learning to Feed Yourself June 21, 2012 at 7:02 pm

I am so jealous of all of the fruit you always have! I get nervous buying a lot of different kinds of fruit at once because I worry about it going bad.
