What foods are you enjoying?!

Paleo Banana Bread #yesplease.

  I have a delicious recipe for y’all! Paleo Banana Bread.. it’s so delicious! First a quick recap from yesterday.

My classes are officially over- but finals are not. Most of my Tuesday was spent packing up and cleaning my apartment. My first final isn’t actually until next Tuesday, but those few days will be a whirlwind. A final Tuesday, one Wednesday, an event for my internship on Wednesday night, and then flying out Thursday night. My goal is to get most of my packing done today (it’s looking good!) so I can study for my finals without that looming over my head.

Breakfast yesterday was simple and delicious- some apple cider vinegar (read about the benefits here and here). For eats- my banana bread with almond butter, and an apple on the side. I was in a flurry of packing, so this quick breakfast was just what I needed.

For lunch, I took a little break from the packing madness and headed over to campus. The walk outside was just what I needed, and a quick meal with friends was incredibly refreshing. Salad– fueling up on those vegetables!


Since I was already over on campus, I headed to the gym for a workout. 45 minutes of HIIT and some abs to finish it up!


The rest of the afternoon was cleaning (and some procrastination..). But some of that was good- like making this delicious Banana Bread!!!!

I’ve been looking for fun ways to use my coconut flour, and decided to try out a delicious bread. It came out really well, and I can’t stop eating it!


Recipe: Paleo Banana Bread

1/2 cup coconut flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
3 bananas
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted OR unsweetened almond or coconut milk*

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together the dry ingredients. Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until very smooth. Grease a small bread pan and fill about 2/3 of the way full with batter. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

*I made this with the almond milk, and it was great. Just as a note though, without any eggs or oil, it isn’t very filling. If you are looking for something more substantial I would add 1-2 eggs and the oil instead of the milk!
