You would think

that I would have had a lunch rich in bananas today.

Well, you would think that after you learned that I picked up 3 bags of bananas from the grocery store this weekend

couldn't pass them up at a mere 33cents a pound.

How odd that THAT is a good sale, right?

However, I also bought 3 pineapples this weekend and since I don't like to freeze them...

I instead froze the nanners........

these were chopped and bagged and went in the freezer for later use in smoothies and frozen treats

and pineapple played a starring role in my lunch

Pineapple, romaine, spinach, a dash of salt and a tiny spoonsful of raw tahini.

Tossed in the morning and eaten for lunch.

I have already chopped a kiwi, an apple, and some more pineapple for tomorrow. Might chop some raw nuts to throw on top.

Today's tip - look for veggies and fruit that are just sort of edging past the 'best' date - you can often get them at a reduced price and if they aren't incredibly wilted, bruised, or broken apart - they are still quite nutritious and tasty!
