realistic recipes for a nutritious kitchen

Banana Boat

Oh, where to begin?!  This is simplicity at it’s best!!

Banana.  Peanut butter.  Cacao Nibs.  Goji Berries.  That’s it!

Goji berries and Cacao nibs are considered “power foods” but I sometimes find it hard to include them into my diet (unless I’m snacking right out of the bag and you can only image where that can lead). I find the easiest way to enjoy them are sprinkled on top of things like my Banana Boat, cereal, oatmeal, or thrown into a smoothie.

So this is not exactly a recipe just a quick and simple snack/mini-meal idea that is packed with energy! It’s actually the perfect pre-workout snack (it would be a good post-workout snack too). I usually make this in the morning before I go to the gym, I eat half and my husband eats half. It’s the perfect little something to get me through my workout and it’s delicious!
