When I have access to a kitchen, especially when I’m home, I am notorious for taking advantage of a fully stocked pantry and basic appliances. With some extremely ripe bananas sitting around it was obvious that I needed to bake banana bread. I ended up using Angela’s Rustic Chocolate Chip Banana Oat Cake recipe sans the chocolate chips and glaze and using a flax egg to substitute for the applesauce.
My parents and I loved this! Less that 24 hours after leaving the oven there is barely any left! 🙂
This morning I braved the elements to go for a nice 6 mile run outside. Before I left my Mom and I had a conversation that went something like this:
Her: You’re not using your iPod are you?
Me: I was planning on it, why?
Her: How are you going to hear the traffic?
Side note: We live in the middle of nowhere…
Me: You mean the Amish horses and buggies?
This was followed by laughter and me explaining to my Mom that I only run with one earbud in. And just for the record, during the entirety of my run I probably saw about 5 cars.
I finished in a pretty quick 52 minutes probably because I was thinking about the stuff I had prepped before I left.
It was good but I think next time I’ll throw in a frozen banana!
I also made Mama Pea’s Vegan Apple Cinnamon Protein Pancakes using buckwheat flour instead of oat flour. These were delicious drizzled with pure maple syrup!
I made two smaller pancakes with blueberries for my Mom, she enjoyed them!
I’ve been using LifeTime Life’s Basics Vanilla Plant Protein. This is definitely my favorite protein powder so far! 🙂
Question: Where is your favorite place to run? I’d have to say Central Park is mine. Country roads are definitely not at the top of my list.
