After waking up at 6am to drive my mom to work, I decided to crawl back into bed for extra snooze time. Little did I know that I would be snoozing for another 4 hours!! :) It felt wonderful and my body needed it.
I was also ecstatic to wake to not one but three ripe bananas!!! I had to have banana whipped oatmeal again!
- 1/4 c. Instant oats
- 1 tsp. Chia seeds
- 1/2 c. Boiling water
- A pinch of salt and sugar
- Some cinnamon to taste (I love lots of cinnamon in my oatmeal!)
- 1/2 Small banana, sliced
- 1 tsp. Chocolate PB2
Topped with KIND Healthy Grains Oats & Honey Clusters with Toasted Coconut (triple yummm & triply recommended!).
I was contemplating having that beautiful green apple, but my heart was set on the remaining 1/2 banana... So I took a piece of whole wheat pita bread, topped with a spoonful of almond butter and banana slices, and sprinkled with more cinnamon and hemp seeds. I love hemp seeds - they make a great addition to oatmeal, salads, and baked goods! The flavor reminds me of pine nuts!
Now that's what I call a superfood breakfast! Complete protein, whole grains, and lots of omega-3 fatty acids!
With a happy tummy, it's now one to shovel all that snow!
Have a great Saturday!
