I thought I’d do a post regarding my breakfast and the books I’m reading this morning. I’ve been working on finishing The Summoned King for some time and should be done with it today. I also started another short Beauty and the Beast book.
The Summoned King
The Summoned King is a story about a 17 year old student who falls asleep at the library and wakes up in a new world called Kalymbria. It’s quite cool! I’m really liking the story and characters here. James, the main character, is a fellow Hoosier as well as the author Dave Neuendorf which is really neat. I’m pretty sure this is the first book I’ve read by an author from my home state. I’m reading this on my Kindle App.
This is #1 in the series The Kalymbrian Chronicles and I recently found out the second book is on the way. I’m excited to have discovered this author!
Beauty and the Beast
I’m also reading another Beauty and the Beast book by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont. This is the classic “Beauty and the Beast” tale and great for children to read at it’s short length of about 34 pages. It’s a simple read with a few illustrations. I’m reading this one on my Kindle App as well.
This week is all about Beauty and the Beast. I’ll be seeing the movie this week after “Guardians of the Galaxy” of course!! 🙂
So, for breakfast this morning, I kept it simple…
My favorite organic decaf Cafe Fair Coffee with Silk Almond Creamer.
The creamer isn’t organic, but I think it’s healthier than many other creamers. This creamer is a great alternative for those who can’t have dairy. It’s not super sweet, so I usually end up adding a tad of Stevia to my coffee.
My favorite is Caramel but you can buy vanilla too.
Breakfast was simple with just fruit-Pineapple, strawberries, peaches and Pink Lady apples. Plenty for an afternoon snack as well.
I thought I would share a few of my favorite “Raw Food” tools from my kitchen for pineapple and strawberries…
Chef’n StemGem Strawberry Huller
I love this tool. It’s so awesome and cheap. Here’s a video of me hulling a strawberry…
I also love this pineapple peeler, corer,and slicer!
Tomorrow’s Kitchen Stainless Steel Pineapple Corer, Slicer and Wedger
All you have to do is cut the top off and push the pineapple cutter into the pineapple by twisting it at the same time.
Once you get to the bottom, just pull up and all the fancy pineapple slices are there for you to remove and enjoy. I just take a knife and make a slit down the side, remove the handle, and slide them off.
There are many brands, but I would just recommend getting one that has a removable handle. Otherwise, the slices have a tendency to break.
Thanks for reading “Wednesday’s Breakfast and a Book.”
