Thank you for the info and tips. I certainly need a brain boost every so often and I like seeing the pineapple on there. It's one of my favorite fruits.

Good list there. What I'd add is that you eat peanuts with their skins on - you'll get the most bang (energy) for your chomp.

I am quite fond of Virginia peanuts ...

Cheers! V.
