Thursday Things

Hey boos!

So there’s some things…

that I want to share…

on a Thursday…

hence the title πŸ˜‰

Thing 1: Hello National Food Holidays!!

This has been MY week! First there’s National Pancake DayΒ and now…

Happy National Coffee Day!!

I hope you all had a nice date with Joe at some point during the day…man, that guy really gets around…

Thing 2A: Healthified Banana Bread

Last week, I bought a crap-ton of bananas…like seriously, at 50 cents a bunch how the heck was I going to turn away from a cart overflowing with cheap banana goodness?

I bought 5 bunches…

to the tune of oh, about 10 pounds.

You only think I’m kidding.

So obviously banana bread HAD to make an appearance eventually…as in last night.

I feel in love with Kelsey’s banana bread recipe as soon as I saw the post on it last week and just knew I had to try it. Low in sugar and oil, but chocked full of healthy fats and fiber, it turned out to be one of the best banana breads I’ve ever tasted!

Thing 2B: Banana Bread for Breakfast

Nothing like a slice (or two) of warm dense banana bread for breakfast!

Which brings me to the next thing…

Thing 3A: Breakfast Condimentation

In a blind taste study (read: Heather BEFORE her morning date with Joe), Biscoff wins hands down!

I love the flavor of the pumpkin cream cheese (although I was a little disappointed in the whipped consistency…unlike TJ’s peanut butter cream cheese), but um, seriously, how could the thought of crumbled up cookies on top of banana bread not instantly make you drool?

Thing 3B: Making up words like “condimentation” πŸ˜‰

Thing 4: Photogenic Fruit

So I found a dragon fruit at Whole Foods over the weekend and totally forgot to tell you guys…

Then, this morning I realized how much fun it is to take pictures of it and maaaaaaybe was a little late to work because of it. πŸ˜‰

Isn’t it gorgeous?

And it looks like what would happen if kiwi and chia seeds made a fruit baby!

Unfortunately it didn’t really have much of a taste (maybe I got a dud?)

But at least I got some awesome shots. πŸ™‚

Thing 5: Banana Bread Hummus

I told you I had a lot of bananas!

I have Nicky to thank for this stroke of genius…it’s been a while since I’ve had dessert hummus and this was just what I needed to remind me why I love it so much!

I ended up adding an extra banana (because obviously I had plenty) and a bit more cinnamon (because obviously I am an addict) and it turned out great!

Especially on graham crackers!


Thing 6: Tropical Traditions Coconut Peanut Butter

Full review to come!

Thing 7: Asics Compression socks

Since I bought these on Sunday, I’ve been wearing them every other night from the time I come home till the time I go to bed. I love the “hug” and I’m hoping that after a bit more rest, I can finally get back to running shin pain free!

*fingers crossed*

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I think I’m going to end my day much like how I started it…I KNEW that Biscoff was gonna get me in trouble!

What are a few of your “Thursday things”?

Did you celebrate National Coffee Day today?
