Happy Hunting Season. I hope everyone’s week is off to a good start and have been digging into their workouts even more with the cooler months (best to stay in shape to hunt, right?).
Seeing as hunting season means early mornings, I thought now would be a good idea to share another new Breakfast Bites post with you guys.
Speaking of new, over the coming weeks there’s going to be some new merch going up in the shop! Some of it’s requested, and some of it’s completely new (and what I think will be a pleasant surprise).
I’m really excited about the launch, so I’ll be giving away free merch on the day of it to the first 500 people who buy any two of my SUPP UP. guides on the website (not Amazon) that day. More details to follow, so stay tuned.
Ok back to today’s post – we’re getting back to basics with this one – it only takes two ingredients (two tops) and zero cook time – so you can get outside and take care of what really matters – landing enough food to feed a football team. It’s a quick and easy way to hit your protein mark for the day.
This is a personal favorite of mine when I don’t feel like anything too heavy in the morning but also want to feel full. It works if you’ve got an early morning workout or a physically laborious work morning but don’t have time for a big breakfast to settle.
Like I mentioned earlier, the best part is it’s so few ingredients and there’s no cooking involved so your dog could make it.
Here’s the recipe. Credit goes to Amy Clevenger for this one (check out the link at the end of this post).
High Protein, High Carb, High Flavor.
Whipped Cottage Cheese and Banana with Maple Syrup
Makes: 1 serving. Double up if you want. I’m not gonna tell you how to live your life.
Prep Time: Less than 5 minutes.
Total Time: Less time than it takes you to flex in the mirror when you get up, cupcake.
Items Needed: A good blender. A scale or measuring cup. Measuring spoons. Hands. A silicone spatula or two.
- 1 Banana, small
- 220 grams (1 Cup) Low Fat Cottage Cheese
- 1/4 tsp Maple Extract
- Take all your ingredients except for half of the banana, and toss them in your blender.
- Blend until it’s all smooth and develops a cream like texture.
- Transfer to a glass/cup/protein shaker bottle, then chop up the other half of the banana and layer it on top.
Simple right? Eat it on its own or with a wholemeal bagel, maybe some rye or sprout bread toast. This can quickly fill you up after your morning shake, too – and in combination with it make for a nice 60-75 gram protein hit.
Few things to mention…
This is the ideal time to take in a good bit of nutrients – in the morning, your cortisol levels are at their highest meaning you’ve got to choose wisely when it comes to what to eat – so eat with purpose. This is pretty balanced as it has equal parts protein (29 g) and carbs (29 g), and is packed with potassium and sodium from the bananas (for those of you who haven’t bought the books yet, sodium is a good thing).
The original recipe calls for reduced fat, but sometimes I use full fat – you and I both know why full fat can often be better, especially when you’re growing muscle. If you bought either SUPP UP nutrition books, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about when it comes to knowing the benefits of all the ingredients in this recipe – If you haven’t, well…you know what to do.
If you liked this post, share it.
If you really like this post, but don’t have the SUPP UP. books yet, buy either SUPP UP. On The Go or SUPP UP. At Home E-BOOKS now – they cost less than the shirt on your back but unlike that shirt, the knowledge gained lasts a lifetime.
However, I get that some may not be able to afford the guides right away, but like the free knowledge gained on the SUPP UP. blog. Or maybe you’ve already bought all the guides (hey, thanks), and you’d just like to support something you think is damn worth having around.
So here’s a good way to keep the blog running healthy and strong – donate whatever you like. Whether you donate or get the books, both help keep the blog running ad-free, too. I hate ads – similar to how a dad who’s sitting on the front porch with a 12 gauge hates when his daughter is dropped of at 22:01, instead of 22:00.
If you go ahead and get the books instead, you’ll discover what unique to each book recipes are available under the “Snacks” chapters (preview of chapters available in shop), and how to eliminate worries or concerns about getting the nutrition you need to stay fighting fit for when you’re deployed or at home.
Both books have recipes that provide nutritional breakdown so it makes things dead easy.
Drop by next week for yet another great post to add to your workout and nutrition arsenal.
Stop doing guesswork, start making the necessities of your life easier.
