Banana Bread Coffee Cake

Tags:        

I’m not a morning person at all. I’m that person who can barely function enough to set the coffee maker without injury in the morning, so I do it the night before, so that all I have to do in the morning is stumble into the kitchen and push one button. (I could program the darn thing to eliminate that step, but there are too many steps involved in that for my brain to process…..) When you add in a baby that needs to be changed and fed, dogs that need to be fed and let outside, easy is the name of the game for me. Generally, I will hard-boil a bunch of eggs for the week, bake some bacon in the oven, and breakfast will be eggs, bacon, a piece of fruit if we have any, and coffee. The problem, however, is that I don’t really enjoy hard boiled eggs. I get sick of eggs in general, after awhile. Eggs were, in fact, the only food that I could not have during my entire pregnancy. It didn’t matter how I made them, they just didn’t work for me. With that said, I’m always in search of something that I can make ahead of time that I can just grab and eat in the morning. So, when this recipe for Banana Bread Coffee Cake from Taylor Made it Paleo came across my news feed, I thought I’d give it a whirl.

Banana Bread Coffee CakeThe result was good. Different, of course than what you come to expect from Coffee Cake, since there’s not a crapload of brown sugar crumbled all over the top, but my husband and I enjoyed it. It was easy for me to grab a piece to eat, with my coffee in the mornings. Although, I wasn’t sure how to store it, so I just stored it on the counter. I do think that next time, it should be stored in the fridge, since it got kind of funky pretty quickly. 😉

  • Props to all of those ladies that can workout and still look cute. I am not one of them. 😂🤣Also, @erinoprea might be trying to kill me with her do anywhere workouts. 😂🤣😂🤣You should give them a try.
  • Finally some sunshine 🌞
  • Healthy doesn’t have to be complicated. Chicken sausage, sweet potatoes, bell peppers and broccoli (the peppers and broccoli I cut up yesterday for the kid’s veggie tray) on a sheet pan. Drizzle with avocado oil, sprinkle with salt, pepper, oregano, and some basil. Cook at 400 degrees for 20 minutes and you’re good to go.
  • Easy chicken stir fry for dinner tonight! I used chicken, veggies that I prepped earlier in the week for the kids’ veggie tray and the Stir Fry Sauce from @nomnompaleo. I can’t use orange just though, because it’s bad for my interstitial cystitis, so I used the juice from one of my kid’s juice boxes.... adapt and overcome, right?
  • Yesterday was a struggle with my health. I wanted to work out, but I knew that my body needed rest. It’s okay to rest. It’s okay to recover.
  • My three year old made me this crown and insists that I wear it all the time. She says it’s because I’m the Queen. 👸🏼👸🏼💁🏼‍♀️Clearly, she gets it.... 😂🤣
  • This week has been a rough one. The negative nancies were out in full force, but at the end of the day, their negativity has nothing to do with me, and everything to do with their own struggles. All I can do is offer kindness is return and keep doing what works for me. 🤷🏼‍♀️
  • There’s a 💯 percent chance that I would have completely forgotten that today was cinco de Mayo had I not gotten an email from @nomnompaleo today linking me to this recipe for Instant Pot Carnitas. So, clearly, I had to make it, and it’s SOOOOOO yummy! 😉
  • Me: I have so many things to do this week. 
Also Me: Why don’t I made homemade sun butter cups for the PTO bake sale this week....🤦🏼‍♀️
The recipe is from @daniellewalker
  • #momhack I usually keep a veggie tray in my fridge. The kids pick out what goes in it (this week, they wanted some fruit in there too). Then, when they ask me a snack for the 10 millionth time in a day, I tell them to pull out the veggie tray. Sometimes, I load the center up with cheese cubes, too. It’s easy and healthy. I prep it once and reload it as needed throughout the week.
  • Will workout for 🍕🍕Wall sprint intervals, followed by 4 rounds of the workout on the second slide. And this shirt from @bejuststrong is super breathable and comfortable. Use code JESSTO10 at juststrong.com to save 10% and try it yourself!
  • Stomach bugs, head colds, sore throats, ear infections, and flu 😷 have all invaded our house in the past few weeks. Most days, I haven’t even hit my step goal, let alone my workout goals. But that’s part of the process too. Knowing when to rest is so important, and I still struggle with it. Today, I was able to get back to my workouts. I did two of the equipment free workouts from my latest blogpost. 10 second sprint intervals and the squats-pushups-pull-ups workout.
