There’s always money in the banana stand! I couldn’t make it down to the big yellow joint, so I thought it would be fun to make a few frozen bananas. I’d never had a frozen banana before this and I was pleasantly surprised by how tasty but also simple and healthy(for a dessert) it was. I just used a simple chocolate ganache and some peanuts for the coating as it was my first time, but you could really get crazy with this idea and make all sorts of different topping combos.

Kale Banana Blueberry Smoothie

Kale Banana Blueberry Smoothie

Since New Years Day, I’ve lost about 30 pounds. I haven’t done anything drastic. I’ve still cooked and eaten things like Lucky Charms Cheesecake, Hamburger Helper Sushi, and Pierogi Lasagna. I just made it a point to cut out some unnecessary meat, wheat, and dairy, during breakfast and lunch on most days.  I also drank whiskey instead of beer.  It’s a tough life I know.  All week this week, I will be posting some of the super healthy dishes that have gotten me through the past few months and I think have really helped with the weight loss. This smoothie is a 6 day a week routine and really kicks the day off right and keeps me full until lunch.
