Where are my blueberries?

I needed a protein filled breakfast to get me through a 2 hour morning of zumba practice. I'm hoping to teach my first class tomorrow **fingers crossed I don't get cancelled on again!!*
0% fat Fage greek yogurt with grapes, pineapple and seeds on top
I had a slight hunger pang midway through my workout so I had a snack of whole wheat toast w. nutella and bananas :)
lunch was leftover pasta from the freezer. It originally came with white pasta but I made myself some whole wheat penne to substitute and added some spinach.

Random tid bit:
According to my Women's Health Magazine May 2011 issue: "Blue-violet produce, including blueberries, plums, and grapes, may help ward off neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's and keep your mind sharp as you age. A report in Archives of Toxicology suggests that purple produce is rich in polyphenols, antioxidants that may block the production of toxins that can damage the brain and other organs." They recommend eating two servings a day. I already ate one serving of grapes for breakfast and I don't really eat plums so I guess I have to buy some blueberries!
