The Eat to Live Cookbook Project: Quick Banana Berry Breakfast To Go

Quick Banana Berry Breakfast To Go
from The Eat to Live Cookbook by Dr. Joel Fuhrman, p. 65

Did I like it? Yes, yes, yes!

Was it easy to make with readily available ingredients? Very easy--all of the ingredients are standard in my pantry and freezer. I made it on a whim and had everything that was necessary.

What specifically did I like about the recipe? It's yummy and sweet from the blueberries and banana and has a great texture from the crunch of the nuts.

What specifically didn't I like about the recipe? The portion size was a little on the small side for me for breakfast. I used the instructions for the weight loss version of the recipe, which were to omit the currants and only use half the amount of banana. I appreciated that those instructions were there for this recipe and I wished that all of the recipes in this book came with those types of adjustments. But I am wondering if I'll be comfortable until 11:30 am or if my stomach will be growling. Only time will tell.

Did my husband like it? N/A

Did my teenage daughter like it?  N/A

Did my eight or five year old try it?  N/A

Would I make it again? Yes, anytime I don't have a breakfast ready to go from the night before. This was pretty quick and super enjoyable!

Is there anything I would do to improve on it if I made it again? Nope.

Overall Grade (completely unscientific, I admit): A- (simply because of the smallish serving size, otherwise it would have been an A+)
