Good Morning Blueberry-Pineapple Toast

Sometimes the best breakfasts are the ones that are light on your stomach and don’t leave you hanging in a food coma. One day I was rushing to class (*correction- everyday I’m running late to class) and I was trying to come up with a feasible and portable breakfast snack that gives me energy- not one that leaves me tired after I’ve finished eating. I craved something more than justΒ a slice of plain bread covered in butter.

PB & J: A Twist on the Classic (Dining Hall)

IMG_6292

This recipe came about almost randomly; all I knew when I entered the dining hall is that I was craving a peanut-butter and jelly sandwich, just like my dad used to pack for me when I was in school…yup, all the way through high school. Somehow, this went from being a simple PB and J to a different kind of peanut-butter sandwich. In an attempt to make this staple in our diets a little bit healthier, I decided to omit the jelly (don’t worry, the world’s not over!) and instead add vanilla-flavored greek yogurt and pineapple to keep some sweetness.Β I hope you enjoy this twist on the classic!

Ingredients:

2 slices of whole wheat or multi-grain bread

1 tbsp crunchy peanut butter

1/3 cup spinach

1 tbsp greek yogurt (any flavor, I used vanilla)

4-5 chunks of pineapple

ΒΌ cup cantaloupe, chopped

1 tsp wheat germ
