The orchards bounty

Workout
As per my usual Monday's I was up early to workout. Monday's are my most hectic work day, so I always make sure to get my workout in first thing. I started with 20 min. on the spinning bike followed by a full body resistance workout and finished with another 20 min. back on the bike.
Dinner

Let the pear festivities and enjoyment begin.
After my trip yesterday to the pear and apple orchards I am digging in to pear bliss. I do love pears in lots of things, but on top of a salad is one of my favorites.

I made a simple romaine salad with a diced carrot and half of a mini pear. Topped off with some Drew's lemon goddess dressing, Himalayan salt, and a sprinkle of thyme. A little sprinkle of seasoning and high quality salt add another element of flavor.

On the side I had a leftover mini pizza half.

Just a warning, you will see lots of apples and pears for the next month or so. I must enjoy it's peak of perfection while it's here. I'm sure you understand. I promise to show lots of versatility.
