Eat the Rainbow... or Breakfast Bounty!

Saturday, May 18, 2013

I've joined up with the Biggest Loser Competition 22 .. (this is my first one).. and one of the challenges this weekend is to "eat the rainbow"... a serving of each color of freggie.. now THIS is my kind of weekend challenge!

So, I went to the Farmers Market this morning... (I'd been up since 5am!!)... when I arrived I smiled because the HULA HOOPERS were there! They were raising awareness for the Oklahoma Nutrition Information and Education..

And I joined in.. I am NOT a good hooper.. but I can pull a 10-15 second waist hoop. LOL.. I have big dreams.. but it was fun and spontaneous.. and I got in about 10 minutes of unexpected unplanned activity! WOOT.

I did my shopping and chatted with the vendors.. such a nice group of people.. and I came away with this bounty

Scrumptious! Red Tomatoes.. fresh-organic-just-picked-this
-morning lettuce and spinach.. radishes... asparagus... red bell pepper.. orange bell pepper.. summer squash.. zucchini.. green/purple onions.. mmm I was salivating!

So, I got home and made myself a humongous salad for BREAKFAST!!!... lettuce, spinach, tomato, orange bell pepper, radish, purple onion, blueberries, boiled egg and some chicken breast.. topped with homemade blueberry vinaigrette. SCRUMPTIOUS

What about you? You gonna eat the rainbow this weekend?? or look for those opportunities to get in some unplanned, spontaneous fitness!

Life is good.. no, GREAT!

    Which farmer's market do you go to? I've been wanting to try one out. The main one I know about is OSU-OKC, but I've never been there. Maybe we could have a shopping day sometime??? You can teach me everything you know! ;)
    Also, I keep meaning to ask you what fitness media you use. FitBit, etc. I may have asked you this before, but welcome to night shift brain. :)

    Sounds absolutely yummy! I've enjoyed having similar salads during my Paleo jaunt!

    I *wondered* how you were going to work the blue part in there - didn't think of blueberries!

    No surprised you wanted a salad for breakfast - after a trip to the farmer's market and that bounty, how could you resist it?

    I have plenty of planned, non-spontaneous fitness today (still working on that wheelchair path) but I'll definitely take up the challenge to "eat the rainbow"! Thanks!

    Agreed: life IS great!!

    Beautiful! I was out in the country today and hoping the farm stands would be open, but alas, there was no one there yet. I'm jealous!

    had tuna salad with green avacado, white onion, orange pepper, red tomato -- that's 4. Had a banana for breakfast, too. :)
    Sounds like a great start to your weekend!
