I cooked up some barley last night while I was making dinner and placed the hot grain in the fridge overnight so it would be nice and cold today.
This morning I added Greek yogurt and fresh pineapple (Chopped by Ryan – Thank you!) to the barley for a pineapple barley breakfast bowl.
The pineapple Ryan picked up at the grocery store that I included in this bowl was perfectly ripe and oh-so-sweet.
I listened to Bob Marley and made sure to “Stir It Up,” before digging in.
This cold, creamy breakfast was the perfect thing to come home to after a good workout this morning.
I took a BodyPump class (upped my chest weight!), followed by 25 minutes of light cardio on the elliptical with OK! magazine. Trashy celebrity gossip magazines are terrific for gym reading since they’re basically picture books and I don’t have to feel dizzy as I try to read the articles. I’m in it for the pics!
