2. Banana Cinnamon Toast
Fancy something sweet? Throw 1 slice of bread in the toaster (wholemeal, rye, sourdough and soy and linseed are great choices thanks to the complex carbs and fibre) then top with sliced banana, a tablespoon of honey and a teaspoon of cacao nibs. You could also add some low fat ricotta cheese for a creamy treat.
