I’m in a TON of pain this morning. I started doing a pull up program at the beginning of the month to try to work up to 10 consecutive pull ups (not chin-ups which I’m WAYYY better at) and I hurt my neck. Somewhere around the 2nd vertebrae. I can’t walk without hunching forward. I look ridiculous. And I can’t Zumba today. Crap.
So I made Banana Zucchini Bread!
A few months ago I shredded and froze a 2 lb zucchini. This recipe used the last of it. Deeeeeelish! This is my go-to recipe, comes out perfect every time. I like to tweak things here and there for what I have on hand, it’s very adaptable.
Preheat your oven to 350 and prepare your loaf pan (or muffin tin)…
2c Whole Wheat Flour
1tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
Whisk these together in one bowl.
1/4 cup room temp buttery spread (I used Smart Balance Light)
1/4 cup Unsweetened Applesauce
3 super ripe Bananas
1/3c Dark Brown Sugar
3 egg whites
1/2c Zucchini – shredded, do not drain!
Cream together butter, sugar and bananas. Add in egg whites and blend well. Pour this mixture into the bowl of dry ingredients. Mix well then fold in zucchini. I topped this one with 2 tbsp of granola….
Pour into your waiting loaf pan (or muffin tin) and bake for 60-65 minutes (25-ish for muffins) until a toothpick comes out clean.

I also wanted to show you last night’s dinner. No recipe for this one, just kinda eye-balled everything till I got what I wanted:
In this bowl, 2 Laughing Cow wedges, 2 oz spinach, tsp garlic and 3 sun dried tomatoes (not in oil) chopped up
Mix it all up and spread on your [flattened] chicken breast. Roll em up.
Bake them at 350 for 25 minutes.
Seriously good. Stupid easy.
