I’m a little bit late to the “Fast and Fresh Friday” link up, being a Saturday and all, but yesterday was one of those days that was pretty busy! I cobbled a few leftovers together for the family and whacked together this very quick dessert – fruit salad.
It’s so easy you don’t really need a recipe – just whatever fruit you have hanging around. I used up another tin (in a bid to de clutter my pantry of tinned food) and a medley of fruit and came up with this concoction….
Tasty, fresh and full of goodness.
I used a tin of pineapple pieces, kiwi fruit, banana, strawberries, apples, oranges and passionfruit!
Here’s another photo because I think it just looks so pretty! It tasted pretty good too!
I’ve also “ridden the rainbow” in my Cycle classes lately. Inspired by the Tour De France, I came up with the concept of “The Three Jerseys” rides for my classes. Last week we rode the “Polka Dot Jersey” class, where I choreographed a million different styles of hill climbs into the mix and this week we all challenged ourselves with sprint efforts for the “Green Jersey”. It was hard work, but a lot of fun and I am continually inspired by all of the participants who I have in my class. Today’s enthusiasm and energy has left me with a big grin on my face for most of the day – it is just such a wonderful thing to be able to share something you love with a great bunch of people. Next week, we’re backing it up with the “Yellow Jersey” ride finishing with the final time trial into Paris – can’t wait for this one either!
I’ve also hit the weights hard with Super Fit Emma this week and we were both pleased with our efforts this morning, especially after such a tough class. Of course, having done a record four strength training sessions this week, I am sore all over, but also quite delighted to be hitting it hard….the term “cheerfully pasted” comes to mind.
Looking forward to another ride with the girls tomorrow – if it doesn’t rain (there’s something about me, cycling and rain that isn’t the greatest combination)!
Have a great weekend everyone!
