Happy Monday! I am actually a little more excited about the start of this week because it is the last full week of my undergraduate career!! The last day of classes is next Wednesday, and I am so excited to be done with school for at least a couple years.
I have enjoyed college, but these last few weeks have been nonstop work. I literally cannot imagine what it will feel like to not have homework. Even when I do not have a project due in the near future, I still always have the nagging feeling that I should be doing something more productive with my time. While I still have finals ahead of me, I find it a lot easier to study and focus when I don’t have to go to class.
The banana breakfast bowl is my absolute favorite breakfast. I hate the consistency of ripe bananas, and this is a great way to use them (or you can always stick them in the freezer for smoothies). There are several combinations of this basic idea sometimes I use almond butter, throw in dried cranberries, sliced almonds, greek yogurt, protein powder, barley or another grain, chia seeds, etc the list goes on. But let’s start with the basics: the banana breakfast bowl!
Banana Breakfast bowl
1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup quinoa, cooked
3/4 cup water
1 ripe banana
1 Tbsp peanut butter
Add the oats to the water, let it sit while you slice the banana. Add the banana, quinoa, and cinnamon to the oats. Microwave for 2 minutes. Top with peanut butter.
…And done! A super easy highly nutritious breakfast!
