Some running first. The past week all of my runs have been on the treadmill. I wish I could have done a few outside, but I just haven’t had the opportunity. Oh well, work with what you have, right?
Yesterday was 6 miles. Then I taught a few classes throughout the day.
And yes, I indeed added the song to my spin playlist, but I didn’t actually get around to using it yesterday. Maybe tomorrow. I’m not too sure how well it will go over. Ha.
This morning it was 12 early morning miles at an easy pace.
They went surprisingly quickly this morning. I’ll give credit to this cute movie one of you suggested awhile back.
Thank you for the suggestion. Sarah Jessica Parker is just so darn cute in any movie.
I hope your week and the month of March actually is off to a great start.
Our has started a little random, but hey, what’s new.
I’ve been craving egg yolks lately. Weird because I usually just don’t like them. I usually don’t like the taste or texture. Must have had a bad experience as a kid or something. Not the past few days though. I’ve been loving the yolks and topping my normal egg white scramble with an additional egg.
It makes it so much better. Well, that and a lot of hot sauce. Ha.
I attempted to finally thumb through that US Weekly with breakfast the other day.
It didn’t really go over so well. Weird that I used to look forward to getting that magazine every single Friday and that I used to have quiet time to read it.
We used our air popper for the first time ever the other day. We’ve only had it for over 3 years.
It was pretty exciting. Obviously.
It was also delicious. I forgot how yummy popcorn is.
My favorite topping is melted coconut oil, salt, garlic salt, cayenne and some nutritional yeast. Yum.
This happened the other night.
Lovely. It wasn’t me, it was STUFT Daddy. He’s the strong one. I’m actually surprised our microwave has lasted this long.
Now we kind of have a matching set of where handles should be.
Ha ha. Yeah, we haven’t fixed that yet.
Yesterday we made a random stop at Subway on the way home from the gym since I found this gift card that’s been in my wallet for over a year.
We did not get that Fritos flatbread sandwich thing (even though it sounds intriguing), but we did get some really cool Muppet bags with the kids meals.
Right? I almost got a kid’s meal myself just so I could get a bag, but Joaquin said I can use his.
Best bag ever!
I’m officially down to my last purple sweet potato. The season is over and I’m not sure I’ll be able to find anymore after it’s gone. I’m saving it, but I made sure to do up my second to last one the right way.
I even dressed the part. Ha ha.
So with the shortage of purple sweet potatoes, I created this little banana bake last night.
It was seriously the easiest thing to throw together and it was delicious. There are a lot of variations that can be done and a lot of different topping to pile on top (like nut butter, almonds, chocolate chips, etc.). Now that I know this works, I’m going to have to try it again with some more fun stuff layered on there.
Here’s the basic recipe though when you’re in need of a healthy, sweetener free, grain free dessert or snack.
Single Serving Sweetener Free Paleo Banana Bake
(21 Day Sugar Detox friendly if you use a green tipped banana.)
1 tablespoon coconut flour
cinnamon to taste
coconut oil (for ramekin)
Grease small ramekin with coconut oil.
Slice banana and place in ramekin. Top with coconut flour and cinnamon.
Bake at 375 convection for 20 minutes.
So easy, right?
I ate it right out of the dish, but whatever works.
An extra bonus- no microwave involved. Ha.
I have a bunch of races (along with travel plans) and discounts for you to share. That’ll be coming up next.
Have a good one!
How do you like bananas? I’m really picky and like them only when they are still a little green at the tip. And the fatter the banana the better in my opinion. Weird.
Anything at your house missing a handle?
How do you make popcorn (if you make it)?
