my Chiso is a snotty mc nasty mess this week. after taking him to the child center in a new gym, well, the inevitable happened. new gym, new germs. it's been a looooong week of coughing, whining, and TLC over here, but we made it to FRIDAAAAAY!
this morning i made another batch of banana berry whole wheat french toast...oh yeah.
but i didn't burn it this time.
banana berry whole wheat french toast
- 2 slices Natures Own double fiber wheat bread
- 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp raw, unsweetened organic coconut flakes
- 1 egg white
- 1/4 cup blackberries
- 1/2 a banana
combine the egg white, almond milk, cinnamon, and vanilla in a shallow bowl big enough to lay your bread flat in and mix it well. dip both slices of bread (front/back) until it is soaked through. in a medium heated no-stick pan, lay both pieces of bread flat and cook until browned and crispy, about 3-4 minutes. flip! cook that side until crisp for about 3-4 minutes as well. plate it up, then top them with the bananas, blackberries, and a drizzle of Walden Farms pancake syrup. last thing, sprinkle with more cinnamon and coconut flakes!
for the whole shabang:
dessert for breakfast, yes please! low cal, high fiber, full of good carbs, and SWEET.
so....i FINALLY got a Facebook fan page for Fit Foodie Le. i mean, it's only 2013. i guess i battled with it for so long cause it's hard as CRAP for me to keep up with social media as it is!!
'nobody ever said it would be easy...but it WILL be worth it.'
that being said, sometimes i can't sit down and really write a post like i'd like YET, so i will use the fan page to post quick tid bits of info, recipes, motivation, inspiration and all that good stuff. add me! or 'Like' my page rather ;)
alright, last thing- a few people tell me how much they absolutely HATE oatmeal (what is WRONG with them!? j/k) and asked me for some alternative breakfast ideas. when i tell you i was seconds away from posting a pic of some of the Kashi Go Lean Cereal i bought at the store a few days ago my finger came to a screeeeching halt after googling this:
can i just say i was almost commenter 411 cause this very thing happened to me too!!!!! i was like, wait a minute...i adjusted my macros JUST right to have these 2, ok 4, bowls of cereal for my late night snack and the next morning my tummy was straight MUSH. bloating and uncomfy gas is not cool. now does Kashi have this effect on everybody? maybe, maybe not. however, i will have to add it my bloat list along with broccoli. it can take time to figure out which foods YOUR body doesn't agree with! adjust, bounce back, and keep on truckin'. and Googling :lol:
i'll dedicate a separate post to those breakfast alternatives!
