Peanut Butter Banana Chai Seed Toast

Peanut Butter Banana Chai Seed Toast
Here is an idea for a healthy, filling and protein packed breakfast! (Or great for a pre or post-workout snack!

Peanut Butter Banana Chai Seed Toast:

Spread 1 slice of multi-grain toast (I like Ezekiel sprouted 7 grain bread) with 1 tbsp natural peanut butter. Top with 1/2 banana, sliced and sprinkle with chai seeds. Yummy!

*Tip on Peanut Butter - It is VERY important to measure your peanut butter. While peanut butter is very good for you, it is LOADED with calories. Just 1 tbsp of peanut butter has about 100 calories!! Also, not all peanut butters are created equally. A normal jar of jif is packed with sugar and hydrogenated oils. Read the label when choosing peanut butter. I use Smuckers Natural Creamy Peanut Butter. It contains ONE ingredient: Peanuts. If you don't like the texture of this, you can find natural peanut butters that contain only peanuts, coconut or palm oil and sea salt. This is definitely a healthier pick as well. However, there are some brands of peanut butter that say 'natural' that still contain sugars and extra oil. Be sure to read the labels, I cannot stress this enough
