I had a few ripe bananas so decided to make some healthy banana bread. My favorite recipe is from the show “Eat, Shrink and Be Merry”. Recipes can be found here:
I used less sugar and added Hemp Hearts in addition to the Flax seeds.
More info on Hemp Hearts.
DH is 6 days away from competition so he won’t be having any of the banana bread. I feel a little guilty baking when DH can’t even enjoy the baked goods. In 7 days though, DH will be able to indulge in all foods again.
Today we went to the gym and it was a tough work out. I felt stronger in my legs but I found my back exercises very difficult. I suspect I may have drained all my energy on my leg workout but it’s alright, I tried my best.
Meals weren’t the healthiest today, I had a small portion of noodles and sesame chicken and then had a plateful of oven-baked tater tots. hehe.. it’s a little funny that I make sure to include “oven-baked” to somehow make me feel better about the cheat.
Tomorrow I am back to work and back to my regular meals/snacks.
- Multigrain bread w/ natural peanut butter
- Strawberries w/ Cottage Cheese
- Grilled Steak and Spinach salad
- Dark chocolate
With DH’s competition coming up, we’ll be eating a lot of steak and grilled fish, spinach and broccoli this week.
