What does protein packed Greek yogurt, fresh bananas and avocados make perfectly together? A fantastic way to add healthy protein, fruit and good fat to your breakfast. The last thing I want to eat is cereal, it just does not make me feel ready to tackle my day, plus I am typically hungry soon after finishing which means I am not getting enough protein. For a protein packed breakfast I turn to Greek yogurt. To say I love yogurt is an understatement. I could eat this particular blend all day, every meal. Luckily, my husband and daughter are the same way so it is a win win for that sleepy morning question "What would y'all like for breakfast?". I have eaten this breakfast for practically five months straight. Along with my aquaBelly routines that I do weekly, and watching my overall calorie intake, I have been able to drop over 17 pounds as of September 1st! You just can not beat the healthy, monounsaturated fats in the fruit contributing to healthy blood flow, which makes for a healthy brain...and with the lack of sleep I have had this is a big WIN for me!
I would be lying to say that it has been easy. The workouts are amazing, eating low calories meals is not tough either, it is all the other responsibilities that sometimes make it super tough to get that tiny little workout in either at the beginning or end of my day. Being a mommy to a little growing six month old has been a dream, but this little guy bless his heart has been teething since he was seven weeks old. Mama is exhausted so much so at times that I just want to get one tiny little nap in when they nap...which is so much harder than it sounds. Luckily, as of yesterday, he FINALLY has his two bottom front teeth coming in so hopefully he can start sleeping a little better at night (fingers crossed) and I can get on my regular workout routine again!
Here is one thing that remains constant and that is my diet, more specifically my breakfast and go to protein-packed snack! I originally created this recipe when my daughter was about eight months old (made without honey) and she loved it either cold or warmed up. I started making it again this past spring and I have been making it every morning since. It is super easy and can be made using a hand emulsifier or a blender. I make a lot so that we can have leftovers, but I typically try to have those eaten within about 24 hours.
