It was still dark out when I made breakfast this morning so I took the opportunity to add a little brightness to my day with something fruity.
I doctored up the usual two ingredient pancake and used 1 mashed banana + a little over 1/3 cup egg whites (about the equivalent of two whole eggs) + 1 tsp cinnamon + fresh blueberries and raspberries. Mixed and cooked it all in a greased pan on medium heat for about 5 minutes each side. I love it when the juices start to leak out of the fruit onto the pan and sizzle/caramelize yielding extra sweet flavors. I made sure to pick out the juiciest/plumpest berries out of the pint to use.
I wouldn’t exactly call this a pancake with the amount of egg that goes into it as it affects the texture. I’d say 30% pancake, 70% omelette.
Spread with coconut oil, I ate half before heading to the gym for a group circuit workout and placed the remainder in the refrigerator to finish once I returned home.
I may have also made a drive by at Starbucks for an iced latte enroute home. Mmm.
I wasn’t sure what the pancake would taste like straight out of the fridge and cold, but I might actually like it more than the warm version. Which makes it perfect because then I can make it the night before and place it in the fridge for a easy breakfast/snack on the go. And now that it’s nearing summer, my coconut oil is getting to the liquified stage even at room temp so I can easily just drizzle it all over.
I’ve been using a ton of coconut oil lately because it’s at my favorite stage where it’s soft and spreadable at room temperature. Give or take a week and I’m sure it’ll be in a complete liquid state. It’s getting hot down here in Texas!
My morning was fairly busy so lunch came around quicker than expected. My stomach alerted me that it needed food stat, so I came up with the quickest possible solution. Leftovers.
I mixed my leftover salad bar box from last night’s trip to Whole Foods with heated up leftover fried rice and added in some freshly cubed avocado.
It might sound or look strange, but I actually really enjoyed it. The warm fried rice melted the avocado and wilted the greens a bit, bringing it all together for one awesome lunch.
Also enjoyed this afternoon was a Kate Bakes bar.
More about them next week, but let me tell ya, they’re delicious!
Wayy more so than the herbal meds I
drank gagged down this morning. Holy blech. It’s getting harder and harder to drink them each day. I actually “forgot” to drink them yesterday so I need to make sure I get in that 2nd dose today for sure.
Guess I should go do that now…
Have an awesome weekend!
What did you have for breakfast this morning?
