I’m so glad I can still eat ice cream.🍦😊 When I eliminated dairy from my diet in February, I was bummed because I would no longer be able to eat my favorite dessert. Who knew that you could turn straight up bananas into soft serve! This discovery put me in a win-win situation: I could eat ice cream to my heart’s content, AND it was healthy. πŸ˜„ This particular #nanaicecream is made with 4 frozen bananas, a couple tablespoons of cocoa powder, and some almond milk. I served it with banana slices and a chopped chocolate-covered cherry πŸ’πŸŒ

Only one day per week can be a Sunday morning, but everyday can be a sundae morning, hehe. This Coconut and Vanilla Sundae with Chocolate Mousse sure did hit the spot!


To make the chocolate mousse, blend 2 bananas, 1/3 of a ripe avocado, 1 tbsp of cacao powder, and 1 tsp of maple syrup. Set aside and make the icecream by blending 2 frozen bananas, previously chopped, 1/3 cup of desiccated coconut, and 1 tsp of vanilla paste until smooth and creamy. Layer the icecream and mousse in a jar and top with sweetened cacao nibs and coconut chips. Mmm papi ✌️

Awesome day!

Posting this as a reminder to myself…..

Whenever you don’t feel like working out, DO IT ANYWAY! 

I worked 13 hours today but was supposed to do 3 miles for my training plan…and came home and just made myself go run. I ran two sub 9 minute miles, which I never do! So pumped! I was super tired after work and this gave me a ton of energy.

Today!

Dinner: kale, romaine, and spinach salad with celery, red peppers, walnuts, cucumber, and Gorgonzola. Tuna with olive oil mayo and sriracha, and green beans!

After several years of using Lose It I feel like I needed a reboot. Day 1 on my fitness pal. I think I did pretty well! Usually I over eat carbs and eat way too little protein. In the last week I have also gone from a vegetarian (for the last 17 years) to eating fish. It’s weird and it will take time but I think my health needs it.

Needing some serious motivation today. Collection of before and afters.
