Papaya Boats

This is one of my family's favorite breakfasts lately. It is REALLY simple, and that is key when you are rushing around trying to get four little people out the door (some of which are taller than I am, but I guess children will always be little in their mother's eyes!).

For the kids, I cut the papaya in half, clean it out, fill the cavity with vanilla yogurt and top with a sliced strawberry. For my "raw" creation, I do the same, but instead of vanilla yogurt, I use a cashew based "cream" that is really yummy!

The weather has been pretty nasty in Southern Ontario as of late, so I haven't been too good about my "mountain climbing". I hope to start that routine again today. Funny thing about exercise; you dread it, then you get use to it, then you miss it. I just keep thinking about how great my legs will look in a pair of shorts this summer if I keep that up! :0)

Well, its a new week, with new possibilities and new adventures... I anticipate much excitement around the corner (gee, I sound like a fortune cookie). One of my adventures this week will be to hunt for a "juicer" to help in my next adventure.... if you have any good brand name suggestions, let me know.

No ideas about a juicer but I wanted to let you know I have a lot of dried chick peas if you want some. A LOT! I've been sprout crazy and I'm sure I will get sick of them soon, but for the time being, I'm really enjoying them! :)

take care!
