Tropical Thursday

TGI…Thursday! My Friday :)

Nick and I have a very exciting and fun weekend coming up, and I’m ready to get it started!

I do have to work today, but we’ll be getting on the road as soon as I’m done for the day, so tonight is the start of a nice, 3-day weekend.

The only way I could think to really celebrate was to have a tropical breakfast.

So that’s exactly what I did.



I don’t think there’s anything better than a fun breakfast to get your day off on the right foot, right?


  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1 cup water
  • pinch salt
  • cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup diced pineapple
  • 1/2 banana, sliced
  • 1 tsp coconut butter
  • 1 Tbsp shredded coconut

I loved the mix of flavors and textures in this bowl – it was the perfect meal to get me going and make me excited for the day ahead.


I’m just hoping this feeling carries over through the work day…crossing my fingers for a bit less stress today!

  1. That breakfast looks delicious!!!

    Have a great weekend!!

  2. I love coconut in oatmeal… the added texture is yummy! :)

    Enjoy your extended weekend! I’m waiting for 4th of July for my next one… sigh…

  3. Is it weird that I’m not a fan of coconut and pineapple?? I think everyone else on the planet loves both of them!! :)

  4. I have coconut butter and coconut on my oats every day – so good!

  5. Tropical breakfasts are the best, I’ve decided! Plus, I’ll eat anything topped in coconut. This looks wonderful!

  6. Tropical is my kinda way of starting the day! I am actually going to be making somewhat of a tropical dessert today. :-)

  7. Your tropical oats sound amazing. I’m pumped up this morning because my weekend starts today as well.

    Have a lovely weekend Brandi – I’ve got my fingers crossed for you! ;)

  8. gah – i am thisclose to drooling right now…and i just finished breakfast, too! the oats look beyond fab – and i agree, nothing like a greta breakfast to get your day started right :) have a great “friday”!

  9. I LOVE YOUR TROPICAL THURSDAY BOWL! wow… and if we thought coconut shreds ontop were like icing on the the oats; you went and added a goreous coconut butter icing ontop of that!! wow and pineapple would be heavenly with it. id totally be tempted to over-do this by adding some carob chips or choc chips.. but urs is just good as it is <3

  10. That does it — I NEED coconut butter! Where do you get yours, miss Brandi?

    • Christie (Honoring Health) actually made it and sent it to me! She just did the blend-shredded-coconut-until-it-turns-into-butter trick :)

      It’s awesome!

  11. A good breakfast makes the day a whole lot better!
    I ate my coconut butter, I should make more soon

  12. I went to whole foods yesterday and couldn’t find coconut butter! Where did you find it?

    • I actually got it as a gift from Christie (Honoring Health). I know you can buy it online from a lot of places OR just make your own! Blend up shredded coconut in the food processor until it turns into “butter”.

  13. That bolw looks delicious!! Perfect way to start the end of a work week. :)

  14. I have never even tried coconut butter, just oil! I have so much shredded coconut though so I must make my own…

    hope today is less stressful!

  15. Looks like the perfect breakfast! :)
