Add Peanut Butter and Banana to Your Breakfast

5 Dec

peanut-butter-banana-sandwich[2]It’s important to start your day with a healthy, nutritious breakfast.  Aim for balance, including muscle-building protein and high-fiber.

Adding peanut butter to your breakfast is an easy way to ensure that you incorporate protein into your morning meal, with minimal time-consuming preparation.

Nutrition guru Amanda Carlson-Phillips suggests the following breakfast ideas:

A peanut butter and banana sandwich can be prepared in only 5 minutes and requires three ingredients: 2 slices of whole wheat bread, 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, and 1 banana.  This sandwich delivers 10 grams of protein, 6 grams of fiber, and 290 calories.

Peanut butter and banana oatmeal takes only a few more minutes to prepare.  You’ll need 1 cup of oatmeal (prepared according to package instructions), 1 sliced banana, 1 tablespoon of peanut butter, and a handful of nuts (your choice).  This recipe yields 21 grams of protein, 9 grams of fiber, and 530 calories.
