Day in the Life of My Stomach: Chocolate for Breakfast

>> Friday, June 4, 2010

What did I eat yesterday? You won't see most of it, unfortunately. I got incredibly lazy with photography. Sorry about that. But, as you've likely noticed, I eat similar foods from day to day. So, for breakfast, I ate this amazing chocolate-topped English muffin with bananas. For lunch, I had Greek Festival food (a special event in the area) -- a hearty helping of spanakopita (spinach pie) and honey puffs (basically donut holes with honey and cinnamon). A high calorie middle-of-the-day meal, but the festival comes but once a year! For dinner, I had a smaller version of Wednesday's swiss-spinach-tomato sandwich on rosemary salt bread. For dessert I ate some dark chocolate almond spread. I also had a very watered down version of our new favorite -- Red Zinger lemonade.

Instead of focusing so much on EVERYTHING I ate, I thought I'd, instead, focus on my favorite eat of the day. Breakfast. I think I'm loving breakfast so much because Ashley over at Edible Perspective keeps tempting me with all kinds of delicious recipes. It inspires me to get creative -- even before my brain is fully functioning in the morning. Thanks, Ashley!

What you'll need . . .
  • 1 English muffin (whole wheat)
  • 1 medium to large banana
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder

Method . . .
  1. Toast your English muffin.
  2. Take 1/2 of the banana and mash or food process it together with the almond butter and cocoa powder. Spread atop the muffin.
  3. Slice the rest of the banana and place atop the chocolate-y mixture.
Feel free to get a healthy dose of chocolate in the morning by adding a heaping tablespoon of cocoa powder to pretty much anything that will take it. Peanut butter. Smoothies. Banana mash. There are a million uses. I like the taste because it isn't too sweet. And get this -- a tablespoon of cocoa powder is only 10 calories! How GREAT is that?
