A Party in My Mouth

So today was by far one of the greatest lunches I've had. Simply because when I was in Aldi the other day, I picked up one of the most amazing fruits on earth.

Ladies and gents...
The Pomegranate!!!

I nearly had a heart attack when I saw the large area devoted to this tasty piece straight from the gods. It has been such a long time coming and heck, I bought quite a few of these. So naturally, when I got home from class early today I had to make use of these.

I only have two more days of school because on Wednesday I get my surgery on my cyst on my back. Granted I like the fact I get to head home early but, I am in recovery for about three weeks which means no running! Which....means I will be doing a lot of walking to class and my diet is going to have to change to make up for the lack of physical activity. Not exactly
a win-win.

Anyway, for lunch I made a delicious bowl of strawberry greek yogurt, the last of my Kashi G0Lean cereal and pomegranate. It was so pretty I just didn't want to eat it.

But of course I did!

It was delicious and super filling which meant I will be fueled by this for my run later. My friend Christina and I have been on a major running kick lately even though Mother Nature has been biting back with a bit of chilly weather.

But will that stop us? Of course not!

Well that's all for now, considering I should be working on homework because I am in study hours right now.

  1. yummm I love putting pomegranate in my cereal with almond milk, but i've actually never had it with yogurt! I'll have to try it, thanks for the idea!

  2. Oh no...do you have a pilonidal cyst? I had one when I was 15 and had to have surgery to remove it. Surgery went fine...afetermath not so good, but I was a rarity!

  3. Caroline, that's a great idea! I have two more I need to eat by Wednesday so that might be my breakfast tomorrow!

    Shanna, it's a sebaceous cyst so I guess it's not a big deal. I've had it since I was about 12 but it is finally time to remove it :(
