So it’s not Valentine’s Day…
But who doesn’t love waking up to a heart-shaped breakfast?
Adds a little cuteness to the morning!
This breakfast is not only hearty (in shape), but it’s hearty as well… will keep you going till lunch time! – ANDDD it’s heart healthy… WOW!
This Overnight Hearty Coconut Breakfast Cookie had:
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1tbs chia seeds
- 1/2 half mashed ripe banana
- 1 tbs melted virgin coconut oil
*Thoroughly mix all the ingredients into a bowl and place the mixture on a small plate. Shape into any desired cookie form of your liking- cover and refrigerate overnight!
I topped the cookie with a mixed berry protein jam/frosting that I also made last night.
This frosting consisted of:
- 1/3 cup frozen berries
- 2/3 scoop good vanilla protein powder
- 1/2 tbs chia seeds
- splash of non-dairy milk
*I microwaved all the ingredients in a microwave safe bowl until the berries were soft and melty. Stir well, cover, and refrigerate over night! Simple as that!
Speaking of food- shapes.
Did you know that the shape of our food can actually tell us what parts of our bodies it’s good for?
So I think you catch my drift- Believe it or not, I think this is a pretty neat little discovery. For more examples of food shapes in relation to their benefits go to this site (where I got my info from).
Don’t get too excited though, a six pack of beer may resemble a six pack of abs… but this “food shape” thing only applies to unprocessed whole foods. SORRY!
Can you think of any other food-body-part resemblances and what they might be good for?
Thanks for reading!
