fullsizeoutput_118a

A healthy dish that I enjoy for breakfast or as a dessert is a pineapple fruit bowl. This is a simple dish if you’re looking for a healthier alternative, which is super fresh and great for breakfast, dessert, or a snack. I love that I can use any fruit I want inside the pineapple. The fruit that I used in this one included blueberries, nectarines, and sliced pineapple for the inside, then used the outer bottom half of the pineapple as my bowl. It is a great idea that I highly recommend. I have listed the recipe down below. I look forward to reading all your comments.

Things you will need:

Pineapple

Blueberries

Nectarine

Cutting board

Pineapple corer slicer

Carving knife

Instructions for Pineapple fruit bowl

  1. On the cutting board, slice off the top of the pineapple.
  2. Take your pineapple corer slicer and spiral slice the inside of the pineapple until all the fruit is out from the inside.
  3. Slice the pineapple into bite size wedges.
  4. Next, cut the pineapple shell about 2/3 of the way down to create your bowl.
  5. Wash and slice additional fruit into bite size pieces. I sliced up nectarines and added blueberries in this one.
  6. Then, mix up the pineapple slices and the other fruit you wish to add and place them inside your pineapple bowl.
  7. Enjoy!!!

Miscele e Fuoco (Rome, Italy) 🇮🇹

fullsizeoutput_1187

Rome is filled with a variety of restaurants, but my favorite was Miscele e Fuoco. It is located a few blocks from the Colosseum on Via Cavourright down the street from Hotel Romano. Miscele e Fuoco serves everything from breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts, and cocktails. They have a variety of seating both inside and out. The food that I ordered was very delicious. My favorite dish was the chocolate waffle. It was super moist with tons of whip cream, and cut up strawberries drizzled with chocolate sauce. It was by far the best waffle I’ve ever had!!!! This is a meal I would recommend to anyone who eats at Miscele e Fuoco for breakfast. If you’re looking for something more on the healthier side, I recommend their bowl of fruit. The fruit was amazing and super fresh. It consisted of pineapple as your base with strawberries, oranges, raspberries, blackberries, and honeydew melon inside.

Customers who sit inside will find the atmosphere very comfortable, and those who sit outside will find it a little busy on the street.The staff is very nice and takes great care of their customers. I definitely look forward to coming back to Miscele e Fuocothe next time I visit Rome.
