Good morning, friends! Boy, do I have a delicious recipe for you!
When Mal and I returned home from our vacation on Tuesday morning, I was starving for breakfast, but there was hardly any food in the house. We had eggs, so I thought about making a two-ingredient pancake or “Oatmeal” Minus the Oats, but we didn’t have any bananas—only frozen ones in the freezer. I figured it couldn’t hurt to try making one of these recipes with a frozen banana, so I got a little creative. The end result was a Sweet Breakfast Scramble made with a frozen banana, eggs, leftover acorn squash, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. It probably sounds like a weird mix of ingredients, but it didn’t tasty egg-y at all. It was more of a sweet banana-cinnamon flavor!
Sweet Breakfast Scramble
- 1 frozen (or regular) banana
- 1 egg
- 2 egg whites
- 1/2 cup mashed squash (I used acorn squash; pumpkin would probably work too)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Nut butter (optional)
- Microwave banana for 40 seconds to soften.
- Combine banana with eggs, squash, cinnamon, and vanilla extract; blend well.
- Coat skillet with melted coconut oil (or cooking spray) and pour in batter.
- Cook on medium heat until eggs are no longer runny; stir frequently.
- Eat with nut butter or your favorite toppings!
I also drank a glass of Dandy Blend with almond milk with breakfast.

Every time I sit down to a meal, I have a choice to eat right and make healthy decisions, but when I’m feeling overly emotional, faced with super-sized portions, or just plain distracted, it’s not always so easy. Wolfing down a meal can lead to overeating, which can pile on the pounds, so instead of feeling out of control, it’s important to become aware of my behavior at meal times. Doing so improves my self-control and helps me thoroughly enjoy my dining experience without overeating. Here are seven things you should do at every meal so you can savor every bite, too!
