So it’s only been just over 36 hours since my last post, but it feels like it’s been FOREVER since I talked to you guys!
Well, as of 7:30pm tonight, Heather’s weekend has officially started! And you know I’m super excited for the weekend when I start talking about myself in the third person!
This week has been LONG and EXHAUSTING! I’ve only worked out twice, the house is a disaster, my Google Reader is up to 256, and no matter what time I go to bed, I STILL wake up tired! Bleh! I’m on a mission tonight to get a good night’s sleep if it kills me! <- Hmm, now THAT would be a good night’s sleep! 😉 #ihaveawarpedsenseofhumor
This morning, I woke up to the sound of my alarm and took all of about 2 seconds to successfully talk myself out of working out. I justified it by telling myself that I knew we would be busy today and I would definitely get my cardio in…which I did! I swear at one point in the day, I was just a blue blur running down the hall back and forth to the ER!
Am I the only one that gets a crazy headache from headbands?!
After I finally rolled out of bed, I decided another batch of French toast was in order, but I of course am hardly ever satisfied with the exact same meal twice in a row, so I switched things up a bit!
Coconut-Maple Banana French Toast: (serves 1)
Inspired by Lori’s Smashed Banana French Toast
- 2 slices whole wheat bread
- 1 small ripe banana, mashed
- 2 whole eggs
- 3-4 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tablespoon coconut flour
- 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
- 1/2 teaspoon maple flavoring (or 1 teaspoon maple syrup)
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- Just pour and flip…easy peasy!
I topped my toasts with melted coconut butter that I watered down to a drizzly consistency, unsweetened shredded coconut, and a few chia seeds because I love those little buggers! 🙂
Pronounced “Fa Tick”
As in FANTASTIC! 😉
And in other awesomeness, allow me to present you with my dinner that took all of about 2 minutes to prepare tonight:
Fage 0% plain Greek yogurt, Cheerios, dried cranberries and apricots
with a good sprinkling of cinnamon
in a my waning jar of Valencia PB
After the pic, I added a bit of almond milk and stirred it all up to make a
(Yogurt MESS In A Jar)
Did you ever watch The Smurfs when you were younger? Which one was your favorite?
I always like Papa Smurf the best!
What are your favorite yogurt toppings?
I love mixing it up with fresh and dried fruit and then something for some crunch like nuts or cereal
