A Superwoman/Superman Breakfast!

November 15, 2013 


This recipe is super simple but yet charged with an amazing amount of nutrition. Are you ready?


Take 5 bananas and eat them whole! Five-banana breakfast gives you the following percentage of your daily requirement of vitamins and minerals:



85% of vitamin C

10% of vitamin A

10% of iron

25% of riboflavin

20% of niacin

60% of dietary fiber

6.5 g of protein

30% of folate

110% of vitamin B6

48% of magnesium

15% of phosphorous

60% of potassium

25% of copper

80% of manganese [1]


However, unless you are a fruitarian, you probably are not used to eating 5 bananas in one sitting so to make it easier, tastier and ever more nutritious you can puree your five bananas in a mixer and sprinkle the puree with 3tbs of each of the following: sesame, hemp and flax. With these additions you get the following additional nutrition:


1 ounce (about 3 tbsp) of flaxseeds contains 31% of your daily-recommended dose of thiamin, 10% of protein, 35% of manganese, 27% of magnesium, 18% of phosphorus, 10% of selenium, 9% of iron and smaller percentages of various other vitamins and minerals.[2] Flaxseed also contains significant amounts of Omega-3 which are important to our body’s health and function.


1 ounce (about 3 tbsp) of sesame seeds contains 57% of your daily-recommended dose of copper, 34% of manganese, 27% of calcium, 25% of magnesium, 23% of iron, 18% of phosphorus, 14% of zinc, 15% of thiamin, 11% of vitamin B6 and 10% of protein.[3]


1 ounce (about 3 tbsp) of hemp seed contains 45% of your daily-recommended magnesium, 21% of zinc, 15% of iron and 21% of protein.[4]


Top that with a tbsp of cinnamon and, my favorite, turmeric and you have got yourself an amazing super charged breakfast.


1 tbsp of cinnamon contains 68% of your daily-recommended intake of manganese, 8% of your calcium intake, 4% of your iron as well as 16% of your dietary fiber.[5]


1 tbsp of turmeric contains 26% of your daily-recommended dose of manganese and 16% of iron.[6]
