Saturday's Breakfast: Organic Eggs & Almond Flax Toast w/ "Banana Bread Greek Yogurt"

It's a beautiful bright and sunny morning here. Hubby and I slept in a little late and then got ready and took a long walk first thing, while it was still cool outside.  Since we did our Costco shopping after work last night, we have a bit more time to dilly-dally today (which is a good thing).  When we got back in from our walk...I made a nice "weekend breakfast" of fried organic eggs, toasted Almond Flax Bread that I keep sliced and frozen so I can pull it out and use when I am in the mood for toast. I also had coffee and "Banana Bread Greek Yogurt" that was awesome.  In a previous post, I mentioned some of the flavors of natural extracts I had purchased from OliveNation; one of the flavors was banana.  It is very intense so you don't need much to flavor yogurt -- only a few drops.  I mixed banana extract with some Ceylon cinnamon, stevia and chopped walnuts into my full fat Greek Gods Greek yogurt and I swear it tasted just like banana was awesome and I was sad to get to the bottom of my little bowl of it.  I snapped a couple photos for you to see below.  Enjoy!

Looks like a fabulous breakfast! If I may ask, how did you make your coffee? With milk or heavy cream? Do you drink it often, or just a weekend thing? I'm off to check olivenation now! Thank you!

Hi! This cup of coffee was made using half-and-half -- I use either than or cream. I typically drink 1 cup of coffee per day. Occasionally I will have 2 cups (one in the evening)...but I try not to drink coffee later in the evening so it doesn't keep my awake -- but sometimes I am just in the mood for it! Hope you find some extracts you like! I'm going to get another flavor or 2 myself. :-)
