New Favorite Sandwich

Hi ya’ll! =D

Yesterday was a pretty good day for me! For starters, I got an awesome kickboxing workout in! I’m pretty sure that it was my pre-workout fuel of PB Capn’ Crunch (a gift from the second group) that did it. After all, when isn’t a good time to eat sugary breakfast cereal? Actually, I’m not much of a cereal person, and I usually don’t like the over sweetened ones (aka Fruit Loops, Cocoa Puffs, Lucky Charms, Frosted Mini Wheats, etc). Growing up, my favorite cereal was always Cheerios. Besides that, the only other cereal I ever really liked was Honey Nut Chex. Which is why I’m suprised at how much I love the pb Capn’ Crunch! 😀 I usually eat cereal as a snack anyway, because its not filling enough for me to make a meal of it. What are your favorite breakfast cereals?

Anyway, I also tried a brand-new sandwich for lunch. First, I thinly sliced up half a large banana, then I drizzled some honey on it, and topped it all off with cinnamon. That alone would have been yummy, but then I got the idea to heat up my sammie on the skillet so that the banana would melt and the honey would go all gooey! Best. Decision. Ever. 😀 And super easy too! I already love pb+banana sandwiches, and I wanted to try something different, and it definitely payed off!

YUM!

Oh and by the way, my bread is whole wheat with grated carrots! You don’t really taste the carrot flavor, but they give the bread an awesome texture and nutritional profile! Its my all time favorite sandwich bread! 😀

A couple of days ago, when I talked with my doctor, she suggested that I start journaling whenever I feel super stressed out. I have been doing that, and I really do think that it helps. Sometimes I feel that I can write out stuff that I can’t talk about as well. I haven’t even had a meltdown in the past couple of days, which means that I’m still on track! I’ve definitely been feeling less stressed, both as a result of journaling and of our life getting back to its normal craziness as opposed to the group craziness. Not that I minded the groups being here….we had lots of fun! 😀

Well, that’s about it for today…hope you  all have a wonderful Wednesday!

    PB&banana sandwhich with carrot bread sounds delicious. I never thought of adding carrots when I bake bread—yum! My favorite cereal is homemade popped amaranth because it’s a whole grain so it keeps me full and energized, but has the texture and volume of normal cereal (kind of like Rice Krispies or puffed rice). However, my favorite commercial cereal is Puffins. It’s soo good as a snack with almond butter!

    Have a lovely day!

    your bread sounds really interesting! is it store bought? I’d love to try it. I had an almond butter, banana, honey and cinnamon sandwich the other morning for breakfast (although I usually have a greek yogurt mess) and loved it. Would have grilled it but didn’t have time. It is so good that way! I think just about any sandwiched grilled is better than not.

      It is store-bought bread…..but when I was in the States I didn’t find anything like it…..I’m thinking about trying out my own version soon though.
      Isn’t it amazing how simply grilling a sandwich makes it taste completely different?
