Smashed Banana Waffles

in All Posts

Good morning! I feel a little better today, but just a little tired.  Although that could be from waking up at 6 for work….


Breakfast was a nice pick-me-upper:


From the freezer, I unearthed two Hodsgon’s Mills Insta Bake waffles I had made earlier in the week and froze.  After toasting them, I topped them with a smashed banana, almonds, and strawberries.

The smashed banana contained:


  • 1 sliced banana
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • Dash of unsweet almond breeze


I heated it up in the microwave and then smushed it all together with a fork.  Yum!


10 Minute Strength Training


I squeezed in a mini-session of strength training this morning, too!


  • 30 push-ups
  • 10 decline push-ups
  • 50 bicycle crunches
  • 20 reverse crunches
  • 12 V-crunch with leg left, right side
  • 12 V-crunch with leg lift, left side


I hope to make it to the gym later, too! 🙂 We’ll see.


I need to hydrate — I’m thirsty!

    anon – decline push up are where you put your feet up on the seat of a chair and then do a regular push up. they are hard!!!

  • Christina May 30, 2009, 8:01 am

    The waffles look great, mashed bananas are my favorite way to eat them as a topping! Glad you’re feeling better 🙂

  • Jenny May 30, 2009, 8:03 am

    smashed bananas are the best topping – they are so much sweeter and creamier.. m’mm, definitely jealous of that breakfast!

  • Help Meghan Run May 30, 2009, 8:12 am

    Mmm I need a waffle maker! 🙂 And good idea with the smashed banana.

  • Mom May 30, 2009, 8:19 am

    Hi, I’m a few days behind again. My favorite bumper sticker is the one Caitlin put on my car: “Be nice to animals – don’t eat them.” I love it. Also, I’m impressed that you’re going to join your serious biker dad for a long ride! Next thing we’ll hear is your going for a Century ride! Mom

  • Rachel May 30, 2009, 8:33 am

    Oh I LOVE waffles! Good idea to smash the banana into it!

  • Matt May 30, 2009, 8:40 am

  • K from ksgoodeats May 30, 2009, 8:47 am

  • Katie May 30, 2009, 10:59 am

    I can seriously empathise with that dog today. I’ve not commented before, but just wanted to say that with you as inspiration I (nervously) tried my first Green Monster today – and loved it! Love the blog, just don’t push yourself too hard!

  • Brandi May 30, 2009, 1:33 pm

    that picture is hilarious! the mashed bananas sound great, too.

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point May 30, 2009, 2:40 pm

  • Tay May 30, 2009, 5:03 pm

    That is a great idea for a waffle topping! I’m so using that in the future 🙂
