Loving ’em strawberries & chocolate!

Boo-yaw!

Like the new layout? I kind of got sick of looking at blue, blue, and more blue, so I decided to change it up a little. Don’t say that I didn’t warn you, I get sick of desktop wallpapers, gmail templates, the likes pretty quickly. So, you’ll probably see my page changing now and then 😉

Where should I start? How about breakfast this morning? I had yet another fab breakfast this morning, featuring strawberries and more of April’s protein brownie batter.That thing is addicting I tell ya! GO, GO, GOOO try it out now! You’ll want to drizzle that chocolatey goodness on everything. I also had some on freshly sliced pineapples last night too. I actually add a splash of vanilla and a shake of cinnamon to mine.


Sweet cinnamon alternative bagel, toasted and smeared on one side with some sunbutter, layered with sliced & microwaved strawberries, completed with a drizzle of the protein brownie batter and 1-2 spoonfuls of yogurt.

The chocolate fudge and the yogurt was oozing out of my bagel–it was just heaven in my mouth and my tummy!

Gosh, I definitely loovvveee breakfasts. It’s easily my favorite meal out of the three. I mean, who doesn’t love oatmeals, bread, toasts, cereals, granolas, pastries, fruits, nuts, etc….this list goes on.

How about you?

SB & B “Quesadilla”

May 23, 2010 § 4 Comments

I know I usually don’t post so quickly or so often, especially after the last lonnnng post (that had me working for a couple of hours!). However, I feel like I must share this recipe with you guys! Before I went to bed last night, I was propped up on my pillow reading Eat, Drink & Be Vegan and was inspired by the Peanut Banana Tortilla Turnovers. I have literally been dreaming about this one for breakfast the whole night. I actually got woken up in the early mornin’ of 6:30am by my churnin’ tummy! So I immediately got to work in the kitchen and made this “quesadilla”. The original recipe actually uses peanut butter, but I am lovin’ my sunflower butter right now, so I used that. So now I called this:

SB & B Quesadilla
(Adapted from Eat, Drink, & Be Vegan)

You’ll need, for one:

  • 10-inch tortilla
  • half a banana, sliced
  • 2 tbsp sunflower butter (or any other kinds of nut butter)
  • cinnamon

To assemble:

  1. Place tortilla flat on a surface. Smother one half of it with nut butter of your choice.
  2. Add alot of cinnamon :-). Then place sliced banana on the smothered half.
  3. Fold the other half over so you get a half-moon shape, like your regular quesadilla.
  4. Spray skillet with cooking spray to coat pan, then slide your quesadilla in to cook, about 3 min. Flip to cook other side.
  5. It is done when both sides are slightly golden brown, with speckles of brown spots, and the edges of the tortilla is slightly crispy.
  6. Let it cool a little on a plate. Cut into triangles. Serve with yogurt of your choice. Devour.

Gooey!

I drizzled some protein brownie batter on top, and served with a side of plain, nonfat yogurt mixed with the rest of the brownie batter. Soooooooooooooo delicious! The original recipe actually comes with a recipe for “Molassa-Sauce” for dipping. This makes 4-5 servies, and it simply combines 3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce, 1 tbsp blackstrap molasses, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 1/2-1 tsp agave nectar (optional).

I’m already dreaming of other variations I can do for this! Seriously this recipe is so versatile! Next time I’d probably mash the banana a little  so it gets more gooey and soft inside. I may also try using sliced strawberries instead, or sliced pears/apples that have been softened a little in the microwave, or maybe try other nut butters. This would be a lovely dessert too if served with ice cream! 😀

Gonna go read up some more recipes now! Later!
