It’s probably not a surprise that I love peanut butter. But, I am starting to think that I might have a bit of peanut butter “problem.” Well, it’s actually more of a nut butter problem, but peanut butter is my favorite… closely followed by Barney Butter, of course. 😉
There’s just something so satisfying about peanut butter. I literally crave it when I wake up in the morning. It’s obviously delicious and it keeps me full for hours, so it’s not a bad option, right? Plus, there are way worse “problems” to have! Peanut butter is just an amazing food to me.
Ok, enough gushing about peanut butter and onto breakfast! (I’m so weird sometimes!)
After Body Pump, I was starving for breakfast. Even though I ate a snack before class, I still wanted to eat a big breakfast.
Banana oats with peanut butter (my favorite breakfast) was an easy decision.
In the mix:
- 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1/4 cup oat bran
- 1 banana
- 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp ground flaxseed meal
- 1 cup water
- 2 big spoonfuls of Teddie peanut butter
I also had an iced coffee + chocolate protein powder + vanilla soy milk beverage with breakfast.
Before Body Pump, I snacked on a piece of whole wheat bread with peanut butter. I was actually reading in Health magazine (March 2010) the other day that this combo of ingredients is great for hunger control.
“… [P]eanuts contain an amino acid called methionine, and wheat bread has one called lysine– as a combo these compounds make a complete protein that’s especially filling.”
Interesting, right? No wonder this is one of my go-to snacks! 😉
After a little work, I’m heading to a beer tasting with Mal, Dave, and Marie. A couple of bloggers will be there too!
See ya! 😎
