It's no new revelation that breakfast is an essential meal. "Back in the day" I used to be a breakfast skipper, and in those "dark days," it would not be uncommon for me to reach for an undesirable mid-morning snack, traditionally in bar form, or overdo it at lunch and then feel weighted down and lethargic. Sound familiar breakfast skippers? Breakfast is the meal that breaks your overnight fast. For skippers who are also getting the ideal hours of sleep, you could be going around ten hours without adding any fuel to your body. Imagine then, if you wait until lunch, you could possibly be fasting for 16 hours. That's long enough to put your body into starvation mode and slow your metabolism down.Read More
Using some of the remaining pesto, I added a tablespoon or so to a few eggs to scramble up with some thyme sautéed mushrooms...it was divine. I enjoy my green fix any time of day.
I guess I am in a banana bread state of mind or I am not that creative when it comes to figuring out what to do with a bunch of aging bananas-either way I whipped up a whole-wheat banana bread studded with dark chocolate chips and sweetened only with honey.

I got the craving for pancakes recently, yet wanted to step out of the box (literally and figuratively) and create a healthful and unique version. I uncovered a great recipe for these unconventional and tasty gluten free banana bread pancakes and studded them with blueberries. I got the recipe here (thanks pesto). This is not your traditional fluffy stack, but they put my craving at bay, especially with a decent drizzling of grade A pure maple syrup.
