While many people started out the new year upping their gym attendance or starting a juicing habit, or just getting back to work after the holidays, I spent a week being sick. I don’t think there is anything relaxing about being sick even if you do get a few more days off after the holidays. I did however spend a lot of days relaxing, doing nothing and finishing Hart of Dixie, both seasons.
My sick days were spent mostly not eating, and then when I was finally able to eat it was very bland, rice and potatoes. I think that is why I got so excited about a favorite healthy breakfast that I have forgotten about for the last year or so.
I first saw this breakfast/snack in a magazine. I want to say it was Domino magazine, but I can’t remember as I’ve lost the magazine that had the article and recipe. Though I’ve googled it several times I can’t find it. So I don’t take credit for it, but it is worth a try!! And it is healthy!
If you want to use Manna bread they have several kinds to choose from at Whole Foods. My favorite is the cinnamon kind. I don’t remember what it is called, they didn’t have it my last trip to Whole Foods. I did however get the carrot raisin this time and it is delicious. Manna bread is sort of a sweet dessert bread and super healthy. Its sprouted grain and not cooked above a certain temperature. It goes well with the almond butter, banana avocado spread and blueberries (fresh are best but I used frozen this time).
Manna Bread Almond Butter Breakfast
1/2 an avocado
Put the banana and avocado in the blender (I added a little yogurt for some good acidophilus). Blend till it is creamy. Spread the almond butter on the mana bread then add a generous amount of avocado/banana spread on top. Top with blue berries. Yum!!!
