|chocolate peanut butter heaven...|
I used Chocolate Covered Katie's dessert pizza recipe and just went all out :)
I mixed together:
- 2 tbsp coconut flour
- 2 tbsp garbanzo bean flour
- 1 tbsp applesauce
- 1 rounded tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 tsp cacao nibs
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- TINY pinch salt
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- drop of almond milk
OMG seriously.....it was amazing. It just tasted like mushy delicious fantastic chocolate peanut butter cake. It was that good. Plus, the apartment smelled like a bakery. Since I'm always extra hungry in the morning I also had some egg whites with salsa :)
I notice when I eat a bigger breakfast with carbs and protein and healthy fats I have SOO much more energy not just in the morning but all throughout the day. I also notice I'm way less hungry throughout the day and don't crave sugar.
It's hard to believe that a few years ago I used to just eat a bowl of cereal with some almond milk and maybe some strawberries and banana on top-that's IT!! Nothing but carbs and NO protein. I was usually starving about an hour (sometimes even sooner) after. Usually, I'd just have another bowl of cereal. Then I craved sugar and carbs throughout the day and would pick at JUNK. People are usually surprised at how much I eat for breakfast but since I've started having "bigger" (really, just more BALANCED) morning meals I've noticed such a positive difference in my hunger, energy and mood.
Plus, today I worked out first thing in the morning on nothing but coffee, which usually leaves me STARVED.
Now I feel perfectly fueled and ready for another busy day of chores, work and class...won't be home until bedtime :(
