Breakfast – Sweet Banana Pilaf
I can tell I’m rapidly becoming obsessed with Kashi Pilaf. It is soooo versatile! Because I made the pilaf yesterday, all I had to do was microwave everything this morning. It was too easy and there were NO pots to clean (and that’s how I like breakfast on a Monday morning).
I combined 1/2 cup pilaf, 1 sliced banana, and 1/3 cup milk in a microwavable bowl and nuked it for 2:30 minutes. I poured about 1/2 tablespoon of brown sugar and a few pecans on top–viola! So delicious! With 6 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein in 1 serving of pilaf, this breakfast is sure to keep me going for hours.
I noticed on my way home from the gym that today is the first day of school! All the teenagers looked tremendously irritated walking to the bus stop. 🙂 I wish I could go back to school (well, maybe college)! If you are starting school or classes today, good luck and enjoy it while you can! Have a wonderful day.
