I gotta tell you, I can not start my day without breakfast. For those that don’t or can’t eat in the morning, I don’t know how you do it. I get cranky, headachy and downright … ugly. I need food in the morning. And good food.
My breakfasts vary from day to day but one that is quick to put together and always hits the spot is this one.
I start out with Ezekiel sprouted whole grain bread. You can find this bread in the freezer section of your grocery store, you may have seen it before and wondered what’s so great about this bread. I know I was that way for a long time. I learned that this bread is as natural as bread gets. The bread is “made from freshly sprouted grains which contain all of the fiber, bran, vitamins and minerals of the original grain plus an average of approximately 100% increase in those vitamins and minerals.” Sounds good to me.
I don’t use this bread for everything, since it’s not cheap. I store it in the freezer and use it for my breakfast toast. I love it lightly toasted with my favorite nut butters smeared on top. I usually rotate between Kirkland’s Organic Peanut Butter, Barney Butter or raw cashew butter (you can find some at Target or health food stores). I then sprinkle a tablespoon of ground flax meal on each spread and top with sliced bananas.
Now that is a good morning!
Are you a breakfast person? What’s your favorite breakfast?
Breakfast Toast with Nut Butter, Banana and Flax
2 slices of Ezekiel toast, lightly toasted (or any other whole grain toast)
2 teaspoons nut butter (peanut, almond or cashew butter is my favorite)
2 tablespoons ground flax meal
1 whole banana, sliced
Construct your toast by smearing the nut butter on each slice, then sprinkling with flax and topping with banana slices.
Serve with more fruit and enjoy your day!
