Oh hey there.
Long time, no talk! Sorry I've been M.I.A. for a few days- I've been working on some awesome recipes and content to share with you guys!
How has everyone's week been going? Mine has been a little hectic, but I'm trying to remain present and enjoy the moment, whatever that may be. While I've been running around (quite literally), I noticed that I hadn't eaten my bananas in days.
Well. You know what that means.
BANANA BREAD TIME!
I'm this recipe via Monique's blog, Ambitious Kitchen, and am super pumped. It's so yummy, moist, and sweet. You would never know that it's completely gluten-free and paleo! It's also full of fiber and low in sugar. Instead of honey, I swapped in coconut sugar, which is different than regular sugar in that doesn't give you that same sugar rush and is processed differently in the body. A much healthier alternative to that white processed stuff ;)
My favorite part is the chocolate chips in it. If anyone knows me well, you'd know that dark chocolate is the way to my heart. Give me anything with chocolate, and I will be one happy camper!
Check out the recipe below and let me know what you think! Thanks, Monique, for whipping up such a wonderful creation :)

Happy Friday, everyone!
I don't know about you, but this week went so slow, so I'm v. pumped it's finally the weekend! I get to paint, go to yoga, run, and relax. My college friend is also visiting, so I'm sure we'll be doing a lot of sight-seeing and museum exploring as well!
I just finished my run, showered, and had a yummy maca smoothie bowl (recipe to come soon!), so I'm feeling energized and refreshed! This one had some avocado in it as well- it makes for the creamiest smoothie bowl!
Even though I'm racing off to yoga now, I wanted to share with you my favorite go-to salad that I always make when I'm in a pinch. It's so simple, yet so satisfying! I like to add a bit of protein, whether that be an egg, some quinoa, and chickpeas (or even chicken if you like!) to help stave off the hunger until snack time (a v. important time of day in my book). What I also love about this salad is that it's so customizable- I literally use any veggies that I have on hand! Today, I chose asparagus, mushrooms, green beans, and broccoli, but I also love Brussels sprouts, tomatoes, zucchini, etc.!
Enjoy, and have a wonderful weekend, everyone! Do something for you this weekend- whether that be going for a walk, enjoying a nice glass of rosé on your porch, meditating, you name it! Take time out of your weekend to do something nice for you! :)
Have a great weekend! Comment below what your favorite veggies are!
Hey there and welcome! I'm a 20-something-year-old running, painting, and eating my way through NYC. Hope to see you along the way!
