Almond Butter Breakfast


I don’t have a lot of time to blog tonight – it’s been a busy day and I’m feeling a little stretched too thin, phew.  But I just want to highlight my breakfast today, ’cause it was a good one!


This was seriously amazing.  I haven’t really been grocery shopping since Eric’s arrival, so this breakfast was thrown together last minute with things that I usually just have on-hand.  It definitely did not taste thrown together.

I topped a toasted whole wheat English muffin with Justin’s maple almond butter

It looks like a little hamburger!

I really loved how the frozen banana was all cool and creamy and delicious.  They almost melted and started squeezing out the sides.  It ended up being such a good combination, and I may just have to repeat it tomorrow.

Oh, and if you are just catching up from the weekend, be sure to check out my post about my girls’ trip to Muskoka with my high school friends!  It was a good time 🙂

Annnnd I’m outta here!  Hope you all have a great night!

  6. I saw your comment about my 50K on Almost a Runner’s blog and it made me laugh 🙂

    I’m very partial to Skippy or Jif. This is why I’m not a food blogger, I just can’t force myself to ditch my processed food. 🙂

    • hahaha, I thought she was talking about Kara Goucher, not a real person! Wow, that is impressive. You have mad running skills. I am going to have to come check you out.
      Ehhh processed food is okay sometimes…hard to get away from it.

  7. That brand of almond butter has come up a few times in blogosphere! I need to check it out.

  8. Wow!! Way to go!! I’m so proud of you!! I think of you as a little sister as well as my office bestie, so these kinds of things fill me with such pride and love bursts for you.
    Any time I try almonds in paste form, I feel they take on a gross taste. I can only eat them in whole, sliced or crumbled for. PB only for me.
