Peanut Butter Banana Bread Breakfast

12 Grain Bread with Organic Peanut Butter & Sliced Banana

I am a serious breakfast eater, in that I always eat it, never skip it.  I cannot get into my day without eating breakfast first.  I have always marveled at people that just get up and get going and wait til lunch to eat.  I don't get it and I can't do it.  The good news for me is that most nutritionist say skipping breakfast is not a good idea.  You have heard the old adage "Eat Breakfast like a King"?

For the last 4 years or so I have eaten the exact same thing: 1/2 cup Plain Oatmeal, cooked in 1 cup Skim Milk and topped with Cinnamon and Sliced Almonds.  I loved it:  it was yummy, quick, easy, filled me up and was a healthy start to my day.  

But a couple months ago I wanted to eliminate dairy to improve various skin and sinus related issues (yes, it helped!)  SO, I had to think up a new breakfast that was still delicious (first things first!), and also quick, easy, healthy and filling.  (I cannot stand feeling hungry before noon!)  Tall order!  So I came up with this - grand slam!  It's everything I wanted in a handy little package :)

12 Grain Bread with Organic Peanut Butter & Sliced Banana

So here is my new go-to Breakfast:

2 16 oz glasses of cold water (I drink this first before eating anything!)
1 slice 12 grain bread (43g)
2 Tbsp Organic Creamy Peanut Butter (with no added sugar!)
1/2 large Banana, sliced
16 oz of Black Coffee 

Lots of good Protein/ Carbs/ Fiber.  Here are the stats:

Total Calories: 364
Total Fat: 18.5
Total Saturated Fat: 2.5
Protein: 13
Fiber: 9
Sodium: 285
Sugar: 11 (only 2 are 'added sugars' from the bread)
Carbs: 45
Potassium: 570
Whole Grains: 21

For me, this is total breakfast perfection!
