FEELING TOASTY THESE DAYS
Who doesn’t love a good piece of toast (toasted, of course) with some nut butter and little added crunch? ‘Fancy’ toast seems to be the craze these days, and we are in on drinking some of that kool-aid too. A new favorite breakfast in the OMG family has become a piece of extra toasted crusty, whole grain bread smeared with peanut butter and topped with banana and granola, preferably Bad Monkey.
It makes a complete breakfast especially perfect pre or post workout. It’s provides you with a combination of carbs, fats (the good kind), and protein; you want to aim to have all three at every meal. Just make sure to buy whole grain and ditch the white stuff. It doesn’t have the health benefits that whole grains can provide you and won’t keep you as full either.
The best part about toast is that you can get creative: substitute nut butter for yogurt or cottage cheese, drizzle on some honey or date syrup, add preserves or fresh fruit and the list goes on.
Here we have some Justin’s honey peanut butter, a ripe banana and a serving of Bad Monkey. How do you like your toast?
