Strawberry excitement

Breakfast was just so incredibly delicious this morning.

But first, a word from the treadmill.

I woke up at 5 am this morning and did 3.24 miles in 30 minutes on the Level 3 Hills setting.  I debated not going but I always feel so good when I run before work.  I felt wonderful after this quick run!

Notice a pattern here? I’m awfully giddy anytime strawberries are involved in a meal.  It’s not even strawberries here (I think these came from Florida), so imagine how excited I’m going to be come late April.

Fresh strawberries and my birthday?  I just might pee myself from the excitement. 😉

This plate of loveliness included:

2 whole wheat Van waffles
two big spoonfuls of Greek yogurt
1 Tbsp. White Chocolate Wonderful
1/2 sliced banana
4 huge sliced strawberries
1 tsp. chia seeds

Holy strawberry, batman! This was delicious.  Can this be my breakfast everyday?

Even my coffee tasted extra good this morning.  I thought about drinking Brad’s share then making him more, but I ran out of time, so I decided to leave his.  (You’re welcome, babe. ;))

Speaking of coffee…Brad asked me recently if I bought organic coffee and my reply was, “Um…no.” He made the excellent point that if we’re going to try to buy organic veggies and fruit when possible and not outrageously expensive (I’m talking to you Harris Teeter!), shouldn’t we be buying organic coffee too?

So I’ve been scouting the stores that I frequent recently to see who has the most economical organic coffee.  So far, I think the winner is TJ’s.  But in the mean time I picked up a bag of organic free trade coffee that was on sale at HT just to give it a try.

I finished the last of my non-organic coffee this morning so we’ll be trying the new organic coffee tomorrow with a full report.

What are you thoughts on organic coffee and organic food in general?  Is it important to you or do you even consider it when grocery shopping?
