Stuffed French Toast

weekends are perfect for yummy special breakfasts that take a little more time than time than pouring cereal in a bowl. i always have more time on saturday mornings to dream up an interesting breakfast, plus, i feel like i can indulge a little more because i know i will be working out late morning.
this am, i had awesome stuffed french toast. it was sooo good and fairly easy to make too. adding the banana made me feel like i was getting something good in there:)

check out the ingredients:
i spread one piece of whole wheat bread with barney butter and one slice with dark chocolate almond butter.
i sliced a banana to put in between the two slices.
a quick dunk in a mix of egg, milk, cinnamon, and agave and slap it on the stove.
i melted a little bit of coconut butter in the skillet before grilling it on both sides.
it was amazing and i enjoyed every last goey bite. one word of advice . . . have a cold glass of milk ready, you'll need it!
the other good thing about having a decadent breakfast, i knew i had to go for the run i was planning. luckily roxy was willing to go with me. she always makes it more fun and keeps me going.

to refuel after my run (and E's bike) we had a green orange creamsicle. yum!
2 cups spinach
1 heaping scoop of dessert vanilla protein powder
1 cup orange juice
1/4 cup greek yogurt
1 slice of fresh pineapple
1 cup ice
did you know you can freeze fresh spinach??? i had no idea but i had a big bag on spinach and it was starting to "go." i threw it in the freezer and used it in the smoothie today and it was fine!
