Chocolate For Breakfast + A Giveaway

Chocolate for breakfast is always a good idea. Even better if you can put a healthy twist to it. Remember how yesterday I posted about how September is National Healthy Breakfast Month? Well, shortly after I posted that yesterday, I perused my Pinterest boards for some inspiring healthy breakfast recipes. When I saw this recipe for a "healthy" breakfast quesadilla, I decided to use it as my inspiration, except I tried to make it just a little bit healthier. I don't like to brag, but this recipe is easily one of my best. Healthy and delicious - you just can't ask for much more than that!

Breakfast Quesadilla

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit
2. Spread almond butter onto the entire area of the flatbread

3. Place banana slices on top of the almond butter

4. Place strawberry slices on top of the banana slices

5. Sprinkle coconut flakes and chocolate chips on top and close flatbread

6. Baste olive oil on both sides of the flatbread, placing it on a foil-lined baking sheet
7. Bake for 15 minutes - flipping after seven


Before creating (and devouring) this absolutely delicious breakfast, I went to the gym to get in a good workout. I completed a treadmill workout inspired by this PBFingers treadmill workout.
I covered 2.5 miles in 20 minutes, plus .35 miles of walking. Not bad for only 25 minutes! After my time on the treadmill, I went over to the free weights and completed three rounds of this tank top arms workout.

I really like the up/down plank, as well as the slow burn bicep curls. They are both very Body Pump-esque, and they challenge me in a way that I don't usually think to challenge myself. My arms are officially dead, however, and I am anticipating some problems tomorrow morning when I try and put my hair up in a ponytail.


And now it's finally time for a giveaway! Remember the reviews I completed for Best Price Nutrition and My Supplement Store? Well, I have some very similar products for one lucky reader to sample. The following products will be mailed to the winner of this giveaway:
To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment on this post with the product you are most excited to try. A winner will be selected sometime on Friday.

And with my blog post done and all of the necessary reading out of the way, I'm thinking of taking a little afternoon walk before I get ready for dinner with my new YoungLife team. Though I already know some people on the team, this is my first time to actually get to meet everyone on the team. I am not going to lie, I'm a little bit nervous, but they all seem like fun people, so I am sure it will be great! I hope you all are enjoying a great day off! Happy Labor Day!
