His and Her Toast

Hi guys! Howโ€™s your morning going??? <3

Since I woke up before the Pilot (a rarity, haha), I made us both some bfast.

His toast was covered in Earth Balance and apricot preserves


(with an organic ham nโ€™ cheese omelet.. that I overcooked a little, oops)

Her toast was French ๐Ÿ™‚

For my French toast, I used *this recipe*. A few days ago, someone was tweeting about French toast made with banana instead of eggs (Iโ€™m sorry I canโ€™t remember who it was!) and wanted to give it a whirl.

Banana, almond milk, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla in the Vitamixalicious:


Brown rice bread went for a lil swim in the banana pool:


Cooked it up:

french toast (2)

and topped with milled flax and maple syrup.

LOVED this- sweet and light. Sometimes regular French toast is a little too heavy for me in the morning โ€“Iโ€™d prefer it for dinner- but this version is perfectly satisfying without being too much.

Iโ€™m off to make some tea and get crackalackin on my To Do list:

-Finish the scrapbook pages (blahhhhhh)

-Hit up the juice place


-Work on the Solo Spin sesh Iโ€™ll post this afternoon (with a playlist)

-Some of thisโ€ฆ


(My friend Elizabeth sent me this โ€œTurbo Blingโ€ shirt! So cuteโ€ฆ thanks again, friend)

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!



Something to talk about: Fall is almost here!! What are you most excited about?? I canโ€™t wait for Pumpkin Spice lattes, sweaters and boots ๐Ÿ™‚

    Does it get cold enough in Orlando for sweaters and boots?? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I LOVE fall. It can’t get here soon enough. I am looking forward to pumpkin spice everything (especially lattes) and hair that is not constantly frizzed out from all the summer humidity!

  4. Pearl Lee on August 24, 2010 at 1:58 pm

    ooh! bananas in the french toast mixture. sounds delish!

  5. joyce on August 24, 2010 at 2:04 pm

  6. Sarah (turning point) on August 24, 2010 at 2:14 pm

    Ahhh, that french toast sounds amazing!!! I have to give this a try asap!!

  7. Diana (Soap & Chocolate) on August 24, 2010 at 2:32 pm

    Hey that’s a fun idea, using banana for french toast…hmm, I might have to try that. Bet it would be even better with some TJ’s AB! Lemme know if you want me to hook you up. It’s no biggie. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think my Garlic Gold got stolen :-(. I ordered the buy one get one special last week and it said it got delivered yesterday afternoon. Silly UPS left in my building, it definitely wasn’t there. Praying to the Garlic gods that it’s there tonight or that someone picked it up by accident ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™

      if it isn’t there or you don’t have it by tomorrow, send me an email (fitnessista at gmail dot com)

  9. Maria on August 24, 2010 at 3:11 pm

    Oh yes…pumpkin spice lattes! Yum! I am most looking forward to cooking again in general as I absolutely hate cooking when it is hot.

  10. Sana on August 24, 2010 at 3:15 pm

    And leggings! I just adore fall and the pretty leaves don’t hurt either :)!

  11. Stephanie on August 24, 2010 at 3:48 pm

    Speaking of sweaters and boots…are you still doing Fashion Fridays? I think you should ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Fitnessista on August 24, 2010 at 4:01 pm

      yep we’ll have a fashion friday this week fo sho ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Melissa @ Vegan CacaoBee on August 24, 2010 at 3:55 pm

    That French toast looks delicious! I have also heard that you can use peanut butter (or almond butter) for French toast instead of eggs, but I haven’t tried it yet. For fall, I just can’t wait for the temps here to get below 100 (you know Tucson, though).

  13. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on August 24, 2010 at 4:23 pm

    I had no idea French toast could work without egg! I love the idea of using banana. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Ooh I’m excited for everything about fall! Apple picking, chai lattes, fall hikes, pumpkin pie!

  14. Anna on August 24, 2010 at 4:46 pm

    What kind of brown rice bread do you use? I want to try it, but wasn’t sure what brand tasted best?
    Your french toast looks delish!!!

    • Fitnessista on August 24, 2010 at 5:03 pm

      i’m pretty sure it’s the food for life brand- love it!!

  15. Kristin (Cook, Bake and Nibble) on August 24, 2010 at 4:54 pm

    I am with you on the sweaters, boots & lattes! I am also excited for pumpkin everything, apple picking and hot soups!

    Gina, did you watch Aarti Parti on the Food Network? She’s their new Indian host! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Fitnessista on August 24, 2010 at 5:03 pm

      i know, i missed her show!!! i was so bummed! how was it?

  17. Laura J. on August 24, 2010 at 4:57 pm

    Aaa I love everything about fall!! The anticipation of the holidays, the amazing weather, pumpkin pie lattes, apple orchards and pumpkin picking, hikes and of course the cuuute clothes. It’s definitely my favorite season (can ya tell ๐Ÿ˜‰ )!

  18. Liz @ Tip Top Shape on August 24, 2010 at 5:25 pm

    Ha, you read my mind for what I am looking forward to in Fall. Pumpkin Spice Lattes!!! And I miss wearing tights with dresses. Tights with tall black boots and pretty much any outfit is set.

    I’m excited to hear that the french toast turned out well without egg. Sometimes I don’t have them in the house adn don’t want to buy any just to make french toast. Banans, though, are always in my house!

  19. Alycia [Fit n Fresh] on August 24, 2010 at 6:08 pm

    I loveeeee fall!! I’m so excited as well! And that french toast looks BOMB. I am trying it with banana like tomorrow!

  20. angie on August 24, 2010 at 8:31 pm

    MMM i love fall. I love running in the fall air. But i am excited for pumpkin everything especially pumpkin oatmeal!
    I cant wait to wear big sweaters, long-sleeved shirts, hoodies, yoga pants and my uggs ๐Ÿ˜€ i have like 4 pairs.

  21. Christina @ Food.Fun.Fabulous on August 24, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    Scrapbooks are fun but so time consuming- It takes me an hour to do one page! Good luck crossing off your to-do list

  22. Susan @ Journey for Health on August 25, 2010 at 11:32 am

    My favorite things about fall are (well, everything, since it’s my favorite month, but….)crisp weather, sweaters, pumpkins everywhere, Halloween, and the changing leaves.
