Warrior Breakfast (Part II): Vegan Banana French Toast

Warrior Pose comes in three variations. So here is breakfast part two, with warrior 2 on the side.

Vegan Banana French Toast

1-2 bananas
1/2 cup soymilk

Smash a ripe banana into 1/2 cup soymilk. Mix with fork, smashing the banana as you go, until the mix looks thick and lumpy. Add a few dashes of cinnamon. Dip your bread into the mix, making sure it covers both sides.

Meanwhile, heat up a skillet and add a small amount of vegetable oil. Put your bread on the pan, fry on medium heat for about 3 minutes on each side. It will tend to stick, so when you go to flip the bread over, use a stiff spatula to scrape as you go.

Repeat on the other side.

Top with banana and apples slices (or any fruit) and maple syrup.

Warrior II

Once again start from standing, with a wide stance on your mat, with feet wider apart than shoulder distance. Turn your right foot out to the right and hug the left toes into your midline. With an inhalation, lift the arms shoulder height, with the exhalation bend into the right knee to bring the thigh bone parallel to the floor. Keep your knee moving toward the pinky-toe side of the foot. Soften the shoulders and breathe for a few rounds. Just like your french toast, be sure to flip your pose over and cook the other side.
