Banana Blueberry Bread
She Rocks Fitness is excited that it is not only Friday, but it is also Foodie Friday! What better way to start the weekend, than with a delicious and nutritious breakfast? Everyone gets tired of cereal, yogurt, oatmeal, and egg whites by the end of the week. She Rocks Fitness wanted to start the day off with something savory, but healthy. Plus, the bananas needed to be used, before they went bad, so Banana Blueberry Bread it is!
She Rocks Fitness found this recipe on the Cooking Light website. A great site that offers an abundance of recipes for every season, special occasion, budget, and healthy lifestyle. The recipes are simple, easy, and always nutritious.
She Rocks Fitness had two slices of the Banana Blueberry Bread heated, with a 1 tbsp of Fage Greek Yogurt, and a dash of cinnamon on top. Before a workout that was going to take 120 minutes, this breakfast offers all the ingredients that one would need to maintain enough energy to get through both the cardio and the circuit training. Each slice contains 145 calories. Try it out and enjoy!
