As I was eating my favorite meal of the day this morning (breakfast, duh) I realized I don't think I've ever officially posted the way I make my Ezekiel toast. I tend to switch off between toast and oats in the morning, and if you asked me which I like better I would tell you that you're crazy for asking me to chose! I love both equally and would go crazy without them!
When I was little cinnamon toast was always a staple breakfast item, so to be able to eat it daily and know that it is good for me is absolutely wonderful. All I do is toast my Ezekiel low sodium bread then dip a butter knife into the coconut oil jar-- you don't need to scoop or pour, just dip and spread a thin layer on your bread. Then just sprinkle with cinnamon and Truvia and that's it! I'm a child, so I always eat my crust first and save the two middle pieces for the end- they're the best!
After shoulders, abs, and sprints at the gym I was having my second favorite meal of the day (my PWO shake, duh) and realized I haven't shared my new obsession yet- Mint Chocolate Chip Protein Shake! Yes, mint chocolate like the ice cream. It's great.
In to the blender goes:
1+a little extra scoops of Only Protein (one scoop only has 18g and I shoot for 25 PWO)
1/2 frozen banana
Splash of almond milk (about 1/4 cup)
1 frozen spinach cube (or just handful of spinach)
1 packet or 3/4 tsp of Truvia
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 drop of peppermint extract (seriously, ONE drop... it's really easy to over do it!)
3-4 ice cubes
I realize it's definitely not the most visually appealing shake ever, but the taste more than makes up for it! Have a great long weekend!
