This Scramble is Bananas!

Happy Thursday almost Friday, friends! I just wanted to pop in and share a couple fun things from my day yesterday. First up: breakfast.

It was practically a miracle that I didn’t finish every last bite of my roasted butternut squash on Tuesday night so for breakfast yesterday, I clearly needed to polish it off.

Banana Butternut Squash Scramble

Serves 1

Banana Butternut Squash Scramble

Check out the froth on that iced coffee!

Ingredients
– ~1 cup roasted butternut squash
– 1/2 banana; sliced
– 1 egg
– 2 egg whites
– Cinnamon
– Coconut oil

Toppings
– Favorite nut/seed butters [I used my homemade coconut cashew butter and maple sunflower butter]
– Granola

Directions
Heat a nonstick pan over medium heat. Melt coconut oil and toss in the banana and butternut squash. Mix in the egg, egg whites, and cinnamon. Scramble and cook through. Remove from heat and place everything into a bowl. Top with your favorite nut/seed butters and granola!

It was amazing. I’m not exaggerating either [in my mind]. Also, you could easily swap the banana for more squash and the cinnamon for other seasonings and make yourself a savory breakfast.

And speaking of amazing, we had another day of perfect weather. I went for a walk over to Marshalls and Trader Joe’s.. it’s so dangerous having both of those places so close by! I’ve been on the hunt for a new pair of running shoes since, you know, it’s been well over 2 years since my last pair. Whoops. I totally lucked out and found a pair of Brooks at Marshalls for $40! Can’t wait to give ’em a go πŸ™‚

I also picked up a package on my way home with some delicious treats to try out from My Oatmeal. I got a custom oatmeal blend and one of their PB Lean blends. I’ll be back soon with a review.

Pretty sweet picture setup, huh?

Toward the later part of the afternoon, I decided to take my work outside. I posted up on the deck to work on my tan [read: terrible tan lines] for Jessie‘s August wedding [<– miss her]! Also, I’m extremely pale. Gotta do something about that but it could take some time with my 100 SPF sunscreen. Ha!

Sunshine

Gimme that sun!

Keep your eye out for a delicious and easy recipe coming tomorrow. Hint: it’s coconut cashew butter. And you want to make it πŸ˜‰

Food for Thought

Are you a sweet or savory breakfast person?
What is your favorite brand of running shoes?

  1. SUN SUN SUN I can’t wait to have sun in my life in just two days. SO CLOSE. I would walk everywhere too and now I’m dangerously close to a TJ’s AND a TJMaxx (practically like Marshall’s) so we are twinning (and our wallets are losing). I would love that scramble as an evening snack! This snack is bananas b a n a n a s.

  2. I have always, always, always been a sweet breakfast person, but I’m experimenting with savory breakfasts in hopes that they reduce my sugar cravings! It’s kind of working so far, we’ll see! Can’t wait for the delicious sounding recipe!

    • I’ve been experimenting with different breakfasts lately too but have recently returned to my favorite oats and nut butters. Hope your experiment is a little more successful haha.
