Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Whenever I have ripe bananas in my kitchen, I try to take advantage of the sweetness they provide in a recipe. I never like throwing them away! I previously shared this cranberry banana bread recipe that is on constant rotation in our house, but I wanted to create something new this week. I also had a few bags of chocolate chips waiting to be used, so I figured why not combine the two in a recipe?! Let’s be honest, what’s better than chocolate for breakfast (or anytime of the day)? I can’t think of much else!

We recently shared our love for Yasso Greek Yogurt Ice cream bars on Instagram {follow us on IG if you aren’t already}, but lately, we have also been asked about other brands of ice cream on the market! Two of the most popular types available are Arctic Zero and Halo Top. We decided to compare the two and put them through a taste test!

Breakfast Quinoa

 This is an alternative to oatmeal, whole grain, protein filled meal that will keep you satiated until lunch time. Its extremely versatile and could be mixed with a variety of mix ins- I used seasonal berries for this batch, but I love to add dried fruit, hemp seeds, chia seeds, bananas, pumpkin etc.

Food trends: What is teff?

Have you heard of teff before? Do you know the nutritional punch that this tiny grain provides? Today, we are back with another installment of ‘Food Trends’ to talk about teff. We previously looked at Pulses, Monkfruit and Sprouted Grains. You may be seeing this grain even more over the next few years, if you have not already. In fact, next time you are in the gluten free, grain or flour area of your grocery store, look for this product. Bob’s Red Mill carries their own version of the grain and flour, among other brands.
