The Boilham Banana Split.

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

I eat a lot of fruit.

DW shops at Publix, where they supposedly have a great produce section. I wouldn't know, I seldom set foot in a grocery store. But, DW does and she buys a lot of fruit. Fresh pineapples, grapes, apples, watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew melons, black cherries and more.

She buys it and I eat it.

I didn't invent the Boilham Banana Split. Others, I am sure have made something similar - I just named mine.

These are the simple ingredients. You must use a half banana, and then a couple of other fruits. Grapes are good, or pineapple chunks. Whatever you have in the 'fridge.

Today I had watermelon chunks and blueberries. I took a couple tablespoons of plain yogurt and threw it in a bowl. Added banana slices, blueberries and a few watermelon chunks cut up smaller.
Then I threw on a dash of chopped almonds. The plain, unsalted, unsweetened whole almonds which had been chopped earlier.

Here is what my banana split looks like:

I had this for my post-run nutrition this morning. About 250 calories as made here.

Yum, yum, the Boilham Banana Split.

Thanks for reading and have a great day.

    Way to go! Who needs ice cream with all that. I do something similar, but I use a lot more yogurt.

    What a great blog.

I take all those ingredients (except the almonds) and make smoothies. I drink my breakfast many days.

I got out of the habit, but this last week I have been washing my blender A LOT!

    I make PB "sandwiches" with bananas rather than bread. Love a little peanut butter spread on a slice of banana after a run.
