As I believe, breakfast is the most important meal in a day. It is my wake up call, energy booster, and pleasant quiet moment of the day.
My food profile: I am a bread and butter person for breakfast, though sometimes swing to cereal or oatmeal, the most comfortable food for me in the morning is definitely bread, plus soymilk. I would strongly recommend the multi-seed whole wheat bread from trader joes:
if you are “nuts” person like me, or prefer those crunchy texture for your morning bread, definitely give it a shot , it won’t let u down. Every bite, you would find the crunchiness and the “nuts” feeling! The other good one is the multi-seed with pumpkin. It’s very fulfilling just with two slides, and keep u full and focused all morning!
however, I run out of the spread for my favorite bread!! well, I’m kinda craving for nature sweetness – So I make this banana cheese spread really quick for my babe:
several slices of bananas, with a bit cheese underneath, 350 degree for about 5 min. Done!
How sweet is that! The banana is warmed and cheese is melted, creating a very – cream cheese like flavor 🙂 and most importantly, it contains much less sat.fat than my original cream cheese!!! another small step towards the healthy breakfast!!!!
My breakfast this morning ! sliced pear, leftover red bean muffin, plus, my banana cheese toppings!!!!
Well, what about tomorrow morning? I would like to create something that I can directly spread on my favorite bread!!! em…and i won’t have time to go grocery shopping tonight. So put red beans in my slow cooker, high for about 8 hours, and ready to make a Creamy Fiber Spread tonight!
see the red beans after 8 hours – they are totally ” passed out” !! haha , soft enough for the spread! perfect!
1. 2 cup red beans boil it till tender and soft.
2. 1 tsp of butter to give it a creamy flavor.
3. 1 package of Jujuba drink mix ( add a bit sweet flavor, you can add 1 tsp of sugar instead.
Add all ingredient into the food processor , high speed for about 3 min until it’s really smooth.
I like its buttery flavor and smooth texture. This red bean spread is high in fiber and iron, while low in fat (not as my guilty cream cheese spread! :-P) I guess it will keep me full and focused all morning!! Can’t wait to try it out tomorrow morning!!!!
