It’s Our Anniversary, Banana Almond French Toast & Burn 500 calories in 45 minutes :)

on September 19, 2013

September 19th holds a special place in my heart.  It’s our Anniversary.  It’s been 4 years since my husband and I came together before God to promise to spend the rest of our lives together in holy matrimony.   My wedding was amazing! It was quite small, but beautiful.  We had our ceremony outside by a little pond and the reception in this warm, cozy,  wine cellar inspired room.  Our colors were black, gold, and ivory.  We put the wedding together in just 3 weeks and had to make some difficult choices because we could only have 30 guests.  That was including us.  My husband and I have actually been together over 10 years and have an 8 year old son, Ayden. Although I was never quite comfortable that we started backwards, I AM truly happy that Ayden was present there on that special day.  I don’t think it would have been the same without seeing his glowing presence walking down the isle with his suited build-a-bear in hand. 

I made a scrumptious breakfast this morning to celebrate.

Banana Almond French Toastwich

You need:

– 2 slices of bread (I use 100% whole wheat)

-2 eggs

– 1 banana

– sea salt

– stevia

– cinnamon

– sugar free syrup/ maple syrup

To make it

– Turn on your stove top to medium and heat up your skillet – or griddle

– Crack your eggs and stir them up – whisk – whatever you wish

– Add a bunch of cinnamon.  I made sure my eggs became a cinnamon color.

– Put your bread in your egg -let it sit for a bit, so the bread can soak up the egg.  Turn it. Put in skillet/griddle.

– Repeat with other piece of bread – make sure you flip the bread and cook both sides

– Cut your nana in half (long ways) put onto skillet (hope you have enough room).  If not heat up a small skillet and place the nana on there. I turned the banana after a few minutes.  Cook to your liking.

– I added cinnamon, stevia and sea salt to my sugar-free syrup and nuked for 30 minutes.

– Once my bread was cooked I placed one slice on a plate – sprinkled on almonds and added banana, then placed the other slice of bread on top (like a sandwich).

– I added more almonds and poured on hot syrup.

YUM! The best breakfast I’ve had all week. 

As for a workout, I’m going to try this 45 minute workout that burns, burns, burns.

I know we are all different and some of us like spending two hours at the gym, sometimes I do too.  I just feel good to get around other people and feed off their motivation, but if you are spending countless hours working out and you don’t want to….YOU DON’T HAVE 2!! These circuits kick your bootie in far less time and do more for you than just walking/running on a treadmill.  Here’s a link for today’s circuit.  I will be watching the videos and writing down the exercise and reps. You may want to as well.
