My sister has the most amazing healthy recipes. She is always whipping up something delicious. She really needs to start a blog. Maybe you should beg her to in the comments because I would really love to stalk her every activity when I am away in California.
You really have to try these Blueberry Banana Whole Wheat Muffins:
1/4 cup almond flour
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1/4 cup honey
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup low-fat plain yogurt
1 tbsp low-fat milk
3 ripe bananas (mashed)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp cinnamon
8-10 blueberries per muffin (we fill up the muffin tin 1/2 way with batter and then put 4-5 blueberries and then top with more batter and put more blueberries on top!)
Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients in separate bowls and then mix together. Bake at 350 degrees until golden brown and insides cooked through (she usually does about 15 minutes).
Makes 12 muffins.
Dinner was also pretty amazing. Whole wheat tortilla with a quinoa mixture of cilantro, tomatoes, feta cheese, cucumbers, yellow and red peppers and carrots. We made a huge batch to continue eating through the week.
After dinner we went to my cousin’s work. I have talked about this place a few times before on the blog but I just have to one more time.
At his work they have every game imaginable (pool tables, every board game, b-ball, golf, pogo sticks… you name it, they have it).
A huge gym for the employees.
They also have the kitchen of my dreams (only half of it in this picture). A cereal bar, every item from Costco, candy drawers, an entire freezer of popsicles, bagels, muffins, fruits and veggies. It is wonderful.
The employees are allowed to bring their family and friends to come hang out. Every time I come visit we manage to go at least one time.
And I spend at least a full hour here. I would be willing to sell all of our furniture for one of these bad boys.
While I was there I saw this bag of goodness and even though I thought it would be gross I had to try the combination of caramel corn and cheddar cheese corn. The verdict = amazing.
But my favorite combination of the night was drinking hot chocolate while eating a popsicle. As soon as I got too hot from drinking hot chocolate the popsicle would cool me right down.
PS don’t worry Billy, Brooke is having a really good time here.
Any delicious and healthy recipes that you want to share with us… pretty please:)
At lunch we had a deep discussion about what foods each of us don’t like (me= olives Brooke= carrots sister= guac & bacon), what about you? What foods can you not stand!?!?!
Who is reading this while at work:) What are some benefits of your job?
Favorite type of muffin?
