This is the easiest and tastiest breakfast ever.
I know everyone is all:
Omg I need to add protein to everything, every meal, all the protein!!!
And I used to be like that too.
Like I thought that adding protein powder or eggs or meat automatically made something healthier and more filling and better for me... (And this is NOT a knock on animal products. I still consume them. But I've learned that eating a crap ton of protein doesn't make your body healthier or lose weight just because you are a ton of protein!)
BUT through trial and error and tracking what I ate and how my body felt and taking the time to learn about the food going in my body and and and all that jazz, I found that when I eat real food and not just nachos all day, my real food already has enough protein in it.
So I don’t have to worry. It all evens out. AND it fuels my running better.
I seriously do sooo much better with running when I eat real food instead of fake food. 🍕
Easy AF Breakfast Cookies:
1/2 super ripe banananana
1/2 cup of oatmeal
1/4 cup water
Mash the banananana first! Then add the oatmeal and water. Stir it up.
Scoop into balls and lay on cookie sheet.
Sprinkle of a SMALL amount of chocolate chips. (Freal guys, don’t ruin ’em by putting a half of a bag of chocolate chips on ‘em. And don’t sneak chocolate chips. You know who you are. 🙋🏻♀️Me.) Bake at 350 for 11 minutes.
How many do I eat at a time?
Well, you know I don’t track calories. When I’ve done it in the past, I have gotten super obsessive over food and caused harm to myself. (I learned this is called orthorexia. I was always worried that food had to be super healthy and if it wasn't I stressed the F out. )
So I don't count calories anymore. And I don't stress myself out.
Same with my relationship with the scale. I just say no to the scale and being obsessed with it.
Ok so when I make these, I eat them all in one sitting... but also I only eat this ONE serving. <-----
I don’t make 5 of these servings and eat all 5 servings in one sitting. Sooo be mindful of serving sizes, but don’t worry about every single calorie and cause yourself to go crazy... like I did.
