In honor of Arrested Development…Chocolate Covered Bananas!

"I'd like a Gob, please."

“I’d like a Gob, please.”

In honor of Arrested Development season 4 starting on Netflix this weekend, I decided to make some Bluth Frozen Bananas! And man, they were tasty! No wonder there was “always money in the banana stand”.

There’s really not much of a “recipe”… but I felt they were delicious enough (and healthy enough) to warrant their own post.

Spinach Cubes! (and smoothie recipe)

spinach cubes!

Okay, so I am not the best at getting greens in my diet. (I know I’m not alone.  ahem, people!)   And, I like spinach alright in salads and stuff, but I can NEVER eat the whole bag of spinach from the store before it goes bad.  It goes bad so fast!  So… a little while back I had a bag of spinach in my fridge that was going bad.  I didn’t know what to do to use it and I HATE to waste.  BAM!  I came up with this ingenious idea!  I puree’d the spinach in my food processor with a little bit of water until it became a green paste (yeah, its creepy looking).

Then, I put the green goop in an ice cube tray and froze it.  The next morning, I had Spinach Cubes!!  I got the spinach cubes out of the tray and put them in a plastic ziploc bag and stuck them back in the freezer.  Easy, instant, serving size spinach!  I throw a couple cubes into my smoothies now and I can’t taste the difference, but I know I’m getting some green goodness!

Almond Flour Banana Bread (FAIL!) and Coconut Flour Waffles – Recipe Review

almond flour banana bread – FAIL!

I am constantly trying out  new recipes, and sometimes they really just don’t turn out as good as I think they will.  A lot of the time, the picture with the recipe is really awesome. It makes me think it will be super tasty and then it flops.    Such is the case for the blog today.

The other night I tried out a new recipe.  Almond Flour Banana Bread (it also has coconut flour in it).  Luckily, I only made a half batch… because it did NOT turn out well.
