Banana Breakfast

February 28, 2012

Yay for sunshine!!

Yesterday was just rotten bananas.

For breakfast today I carried down a near-rotten banana plus a packet of Barney Butter I brought from home. Smothered onto a bagel!

Plus a pile of that delicious fruit!

And I added a glass of milk for a splash more protein. Good thing there’s always coffee everywhere so you can always find milk on a continental breakfast.

We have half day of sessions to attend and then we’re hoping today to get out for some beach combing!

Mashed banana with peanut butter on a bagel sounds delicious! I am definitely going to try that once I have a ripe enough banana. :) Enjoy the sunshine!

I just got back from a run and it’s a little nicer here today than yesterday and hopefully will clear up…I hate it when we get rain in San Diego and I know I have friends here from out of town…I want you to experience only sunshine and rainbows :)

Since my lovely friend just shipped me some Justin’s maple almond butter I may be re-creating a version of this breakfast! Envying your gorgeous weather over there all the way from East Coast Canada :)

Man, I’m drooling. Why does fresh fruit always end up looking so much better on the road than at home…at least for me? :-)

Looks delicious! I haven’t tried Justin’s nut butters yet (I don’t even know if we can get them here in Canada – I don’t think so) but I’m excited for the day I do! Have a great day of sessions Kath, and happy beach combing!

Fruit always tastes so much better when someone else cuts it for you!

12 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning February 28, 2012 at 1:50 pm

And there’s just something about the way that they slice fruit like that (thin and uniform) – that also makes it taste better!

I am craving some watermelon, it is my favorite fruit, cant wait for summer to come!

Having a few supplemental food items can really help spice up a hotel continental breakfast — peanut butter is one of my staples, too!

Looks like some of the pregnancy nausea may have passed just in time for you to enjoy this trip. Have fun in the sun :-)

Even the sight & sound of the beach is enough for me – sunshine and warm weather is a bonus!

20 Jamie @ Don't Forget the Cinnamon February 28, 2012 at 12:40 pm

Those borderline rotten, mushy bananas are the BEST!!!

Looks like a winning breakfast! Hoping for better weather for you today :-)

22 Cait's Plate February 28, 2012 at 12:48 pm

So jealous! I hope you get some beach combing time in today solely so that we can live vicariously through you ;)

A verrrry special package arrived on my doorstep yesterday and it completely made my week (year??)! Love that it came in the Great Harvest box – I could DEFINITELY smell the bakery when I opened it…haha :)

I want some pineapple. Yum!!!!!!

HIGHLY recommend checking out Miguel’s while you’re there for their white cheese sauce. It’s so amazing people buy it in bulk! It’s within walking distance of the Hotel del. http://www.brigantine.com/miguels_cocina/location-coronado.html Also, if you want some romance, head back to the Silver Strand to the Loews hotel…they have a gondola ride there :) http://www.gondolacompany.com/ Couldn’t help myself, since your mom-in-law might not know about those :)

I had much better luck beachcombing at Ocean Beach further up the coast than I did at Coronado Beach when were there 2 years ago around this time of year.

I used to hate over ripe bananas – and then I started freezing them and making a “soft ice cream”.
I wrote about it on Monday if anybody is interested: http://www.snack-girl.com/snack/zero-points-plus-dessert/

Your bagel doesn’t look to appealing to the eye but I’m sure it was fantastic! I love that combo!

29 Kerry @ Totes My Oats February 28, 2012 at 1:24 pm

Yumm that bagel breakfast looks so good. Cinnamon raisin? Great combo of favors!

I would love to be basking in the sun on a beach right now!

The weather looks unbelievable there. Cinnamon-raisin bagels are so freaking good.

FYI, my doctor and midwife told me that you can have 2-3 cups of coffee per day once the 2nd trimester starts. Was soooo happy when I hit 13 weeks!!

Hey Kath,

I’ve been following your blog religiously for 1 1/2 years now and love all your recipe idea’s..nut butters now make a regular appearance at breakfast :)
i live in san diego (and yes that storm yesterday was CRAZY!) and my partner owns a couple of restaurants here where we do all organic, grass feed burgers (and a lamb burger from new zealand which is my favorite!). I would love to meet you guys and give you a tour of the restaurant if you ever get some time off while your here! :) hope the sun keeps shining for you today!

Barney + banana is a great way to start the day!

I love that you drink cow’s milk, raisin bagels and gluten ( I eat bagels with milk ALL the time – great snacks too). I find amongst bloggers it is a rare thing. I love these items :) Your breakfasts are always good options to add into my rotation.

I am in a lunch rut though and seriously need to change this!

39 Laura @ She Eats Well February 28, 2012 at 2:53 pm

Gotta love the to-go packs of nut butter. I stash them everywhere…ha! Your fruit is making me crave Spring & Summer fruit.

I love fresh fruit–looks tasty!

41 TeenyLittleSuperChef February 28, 2012 at 3:49 pm

You definitely put those who say they can’t eat healthy when on away from home, to shame. There’s no reason you can’t still eat a balance diet even when your choices are more limited. Got a banana? Check! Got a bagel? Check! Got some peanut butter? Heck yes! And there ya go. Awesome breakfast and very little preparation. Way to be, Kath, way to be!

42 Jasper Naomi @ crunchylittlebites February 28, 2012 at 3:59 pm

the great thing about trying to balance meals when others might, at first glance, think it impossible – is that you have to use some imagination! :D and a little bacon never hurt anyone :D

Fun Fun! That fruit looks awesome! Makes me wish it were summer.

I’m glad the sun came out for you today, though it is still COLD! Are you doing any meetups while you are here?

I love having fruit for breakfast – even near rotten bananas. ;) My bowl of Kellogg’s FiberPlus Cinnamon Oat Crunch just wouldn’t be the same without a few slices added on top.

48 Lexi @ Cura Personalis Foodie February 29, 2012 at 9:52 pm

carbs + sunflower butter + banana is my total go-to breakfast as well :)
