This is a great breakfast option that Chef Martine at Living Light shared with us one day. Martine’s go to breakfast to give her enough energy and fuel to sustain throughout a workout or intense activity. I made sure to make note of it so I could try it when I got home. This is actually really tasty and it totally gives me the perfect amount of fuel pre-workout or hike. I’m not sure the specific amounts Martine created her breakfast wrap with but this tasted great to me.
Martine’s Energy Breakfast
2 collard leaves
3 TBSP date paste
2 pinch’s of cayenne powder
- Wash and dry collard leaves. Cut off stem ends. I like to use my paring knife to trim down the thickness of the stem throughout the leaf as well, I find it’s too tough to chew and makes it harder to roll.
- Divide date paste evenly between the two leaves and spread a strip horizontally across stem. Sprinkle with cayenne.
- Cut Banana in half lengthwise and place along date paste strip. Roll up and enjoy!
