what’s for breakfast?

I’ve been getting lots of questions about breakfast, so today I thought I would show you a day in the life of my beautiful break-the-fast.

I know you guys want something easy, so this four ingredient shake is darn near perfect.

Part 1:

Peanut Butter Banana Milkshake

  • one sliced RIPE frozen bananna
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk (from the carton, not can)/organic cow’s milk 
  • 1-2 heaping tbsp  peanut butter
  • 2 ice cubes
  • optional: 2 tsp ground flaxseed, baby spinach
    the goods

Using a blender, blend until smooth and creamy.  I used 1/2 cup coconut milk, but when I want a thick, soft-serve consistency, I use 1/4 cup.  I chose to add the flax and skip the spinach this time.

Have you ever had the RPAC’s delicious peaut butter banana shake?  I have, and it is AMAZING. But I’ve had the 600 calorie price tag, too.  My version has no added sugar and WAY less calories 🙂

thick n' creamy

I usually like something sweet AND something salty in the morning, which explains my next choice.

Part 2:

Spinach and Artichoke  Cheezy Toast

Toast bread.

Spread with yummus.

Sprinkle with nooch (nutritional yeast.

Nooch has some pretty impressive stats.

Now walk your little behind into Whole Foods and get some.  You can read more about it here. I sprinkle it on everything from popcorn and toast to pasta.  Try it on scrambled eggs or anything else you want to cheese-ify. Buy it in the bulk bins or go crazy and buy a whole package.

Now I’m off to Aab for the best Indian food in town.  They have a ridiculously good lunch buffet.


Happy eating!
