A Fun Weekend and Some Recipes to Share
It's hard being a 3 year old!
My husband took the 2 oldest boys skiing on Saturday and he sent me this picture from the slopes. This was at lunch time. I guess James was skiing hard and needed to take a break!
Sunday the boys had their ice skating lessons. Afterward, I decided to make some homemade banana soft serve. This was a recipe I found on a website called Choosing Raw. The title of the post is called, "This Post Will Change Your Life". This really isn't even a recipe because you only need one ingredient...frozen bananas! other ingredients are optional. I did add a little bit of almond milk because it wasn't getting creamy at first, but once I did that it immediately got thick and creamy. Charlie wanted me to add some chocolate chips and peanut butter chips, both of which I added and it turned out great.
The boys love it. Seriously, this is so easy and so yummy that I'm going to be making it all the time. The possibilities are endless as far as add-ins go. You could add berries, peanut butter, cocoa powder...anything you want. Go and read about it HERE.
One of my goals for the year is to start eating healthier. I don't think that we do that bad of a job so far, but I'd like to incorporate more raw foods into our diet, especially vegetables and reduce the amount of white flour and sugar that we consume. I made a trip to Wegmans last night and got a lot of good things. I'm going to be making some Zesty Black Bean & Corn Salad tonight. I've made it before lots of times and it's really good. I thought it would be something easy for me to make and take to work this week. This is one of my favorite healthy recipes to make, I love all of the fresh ingredients, especially the cilantro. Here's the recipe I'll be using.
What is one of your favorite tasty and healthy recipes?
