Yesterday, I made some delicious banana bread!  It is moist and very banana-y

Banana Bread

I used this recipe and adapted it slightly.  I love the “healthified” recipe section on because they are fun to try and they inspire me to healthify my own recipes.  Not being in my own kitchen, I was missing a couple of special ingredients I would have liked to mix in (whole wheat flour, flax, chia seeds).  But it is still tasty!


  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose unbleached flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
  • 3/4 cup sugar 
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 2 egg whites 
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas (2 large) 
  • 1/4 cup fat-free (skim) milk 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla 
1  Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom only of 8×4-inch or 9×5-inch loaf pan with shortening, or spray with cooking spray. In medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
2  In large bowl, beat sugar, oil, egg whites, bananas, milk and vanilla until well blended. Stir in flour mixture until well blended. Stir in walnuts. Spoon into pan.
3  Bake 8-inch loaf 55 to 62 minutes, 9-inch loaf 45 to 52 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 5 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour, before slicing.

For breakfast this morning I had yet another smoothie…the same kind as yesterday!  It really hit the spot again 🙂

Gotta love ’em!

Today, on my schedule for the half marathon, I am running 3 miles and strength training by teaching Core Intensity.  Should be a great day!

  1. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is not that great, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. WordPress Seo Plugin
