Japan’s Simplest Diet: Eat a Banana in the Morning for Breakfast


Banana, Oh My Banana
I discovered your blog while attempting to find a new healthier banana muffin recipe on line. I took a photo to share but nowhere to post it here. And am striving toward health and do not suffer in the same way anymore. Will use this recipe regularly from now on.

Dark Chocolate Coconut Flour Mug Cake (Guilt-Free Recipe)

The Chocolate Diet

But since you do know, you might pick up a hint of that. But of course, the little bit of coconut flavor goes spectacularly well with the flavors of banana and cinnamon. You could almost imagine yourself in the Caribbean, having breakfast near the crystal-blue crashing waves. My favorite topping is strawberries, but any type of berries — blueberries, raspberries, blackberries — yum! Or a mix of all of them! But, the best thing about these simple banana pancakes is this: Want more paleo recipes?

Take a look at the Paleo Grubs Book. I took my first spin class. Well, not my first one ever, but the first one in my new attempt for more cardio and more exercise. Spinning makes you real sweaty. It was funny to walk into a globo gym for the first time in probably over 3 years. And if you went to a big college, you know what those gyms look like. Obviously, college students are extremely intelligent about their eating and drinking habits. And pass out while ellipticalling. Anywho, after being in a CrossFit gym for over 3 years and knowing every person in the gym, it was weird to walk into a gym where no one talks much.

Everyone looks so serious. And it was weird to have mirrors everywhere. Not really into that. I like not knowing my pain face. Anywho, do I need to watch Game of Thrones? I want to be part of the in crowd. Do you ever wonder how many fake people exist on Facebook? Facebook is kind of really creepy. A new season of The Kardashians is on.

Probably because their makeup is so awesome, or because they have lots of money. People with lots of money are interesting to watch. Not really, but kind of. Light and Crispy Vanilla Protein Waffles. Vanilla Bean Lemon Curd Waffles. I may be compensated through my affiliate links in this post, but all opinions are my own.

This compensation helps with expenses to keep this blog up and running! I have a hard time getting rid of the salt in my kidneys and moving water throughout my body. I omitted the sea salt without any problem. However, the baking soda would be useful for rising. They would probably come out very flat without it, but sometimes we have to sacrifice fluffy for the right thing for our body. Why are you SO funny?! I am not paleo what so ever, but I just come to this blog all the time to see what you come up with.

Keep it up, girl. Are the inches you have lost from doing more cadio and less lifting just because you were doing less cardio when you were lifting more or because your muscles were bigger from lifting more?

Did my first wod at a crossfit center after working in a fitness center for one and a half year! Feel like I live the opposite life from you right now — but I get the feeling of weirdness to walk into a whole new world…..

Everyone is sizing each other up. And there are so many cardio bunnies and meat heads! I admit, though, that the feeling of being stared at is probably in my head. I read the books, which are fantastic, so I really enjoy watching the screen adaptation.

That would probably annoy me. I love both spin class and Crossfit. If you stick with spinning I definitely recommend investing in padded shorts with a long inseam, your crotch will thank you ;. I just got on the Game of Thrones bandwagon myself and it is popular for a reason.

The word obsessive comes to mind…. Made your sweet potato brownies, buffalo chicken meatloaf, and shredded beef all delicious. You must watch Game of Theones! Waffles look amazing cant wait to try! This is one of those. I love love LOVE your blog! You make paleo fun and interesting! Game of Thrones rocks; totally recommend it. I like to mix things up. Waffles for dinner are okay, right? First of all, I love you! If you really want to laugh at yourself and do more cardio, try zumba.

I do it twice a week and sweat like crazy and feel like a fool. But it is awesomely amazing if you want to add more cardio. Third, you should just know you are awesome and I enjoy reading your blogs and trying out your recipes!

Does it have to be shredded coconut or can it be coconut flakes? I want to make these tomorrow morning of I survive the 7am class. If facebook was a country it would be the third largest in the world after China and India another factoftheday. Hopefully it will be on Netflix one day and then I can be like three years behind the cool kids….

And I watch the Kardashians too, ugh. Love Game of Thrones! The books were recommended to me a while ago, and I was so excited to see HBO bring the characters to life also not a book snob who freaks out about small deviations. Have you considered adding crossfit endurance to your programming? TV, too, and all the good clothes and make up. You had me laughing! Now I have to go workout. Making these for the husband and kid for dinner tonight with blueberries and choc chips. We make the cinnamon plantain pancakes for waffles all the time and they freeze well!

Yes you should watch Games of Thrones! Typical HBO show lots of nakedness and violence. Would you recommend it? However, back in the old wheat flour waffle days, I just remember them as being a big delivery system for butter and maple syrup. Could be an annual event. Yes, for those of us with nut allergies, what is a good substitute for almond flour? And why is soy a bad ingredient? I love soy milk and want to try soy flour in some recipes.

And to add to all of that, they warm up well in the toaster. Kids and I enjoyed these 2 days in a row. Thank you for the recipe. Just made these a few minutes ago…awesome! How do you hold back from crossfit. It actually sounds pretty good. Ufff, looks awesome, I love any recipes with Cinnamon, I will try them out next week and let you know how it goes ;.

This waffles are awesome. My husband made this this morning for my birthday breakfast. I only put cut up strawberries on my waffle, no syrup, simply awesome. I got so excited to make these until I realized I was out of bananas. How does that happen? Oh well, next time. By the way your chocolate waffles are pretty awesome too. My kids ate the leftovers…I was so mad because I was saving them for me.

Since I did not have a waffle iron, I went out and purchased a Calphalon. I just had to try this recipe and it was fantastic. It is important not to make the pieces too small, because Eclectus like to take pieces of fruit back up to the perch to eat.

After the morning selection of fruit and vegetables have been chopped, they are placed in a plastic bucket. To this I add a quantity of cooked maize seed corn. The maize is prepared the night before by adding a one litre container full of whole maize seed to a large saucepan, cover with water and bring to the boil, cook until soft then drain off the water, wash a couple of times with cold water and store in the fridge overnight.

The cooked maize is added to the chopped fruit mix and mixed by hand. When feeding out to the birds I place either a fresh lettuce or silver beet leaf that has been washed in the feed dish. I then add a about a handful of the maize and fruit and vegetable mix. In another dish, I give a small quantity of seeds. To this I add only about a tablespoon full of grey sunflower seeds. Too much sunflower seed is not good for Eclectus as fats tend to be stored.

If overfed, they will become overweight and tend to sit, and prefering to climb around their aviary rather than fly, so it is important not to over feed them with sunflower seed. When in season, special treats such as guavas, pomegranates, passionfruit, rock melon, paw-paw and mango are offered.

My Eclectus especially enjoyed the mangos and spent many hours feeding and chewing the seed. Eclectus also love to eat chillies, but these should be fed in moderation. When preparing the daily food for the birds, care should be taken to make sure that all fruit and vegetables are free of pesticides. Even fruit purchased from the fruit market should be thoroughly washed before feeding it to our birds. Eclectus parrots love to feed on native fruits and blossoms such as sandpaper figs, hawthorn, cotoneaster pyracantha berries and blossoms of the grevillea bottlebrush shrubs.

Fresh greens such as dandelion, including the roots and flowers, are enjoyed by Eclectus parrots, especially during the breeding season when young are in the nest.
