So there’s some things…
that I want to share…
on a Thursday…
hence the title 😉
Thing 1: Hello National Food Holidays!!
This has been MY week! First there’s National Pancake Day and now…
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
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
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” 😉
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. 😉
Unfortunately it didn’t really have much of a taste (maybe I got a dud?)
But at least I got some awesome shots. 🙂
Thing 5: Banana Bread Hummus
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!
Thing 6: Tropical Traditions Coconut Peanut Butter
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!
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?
