Decadent. Delightful. Delicious.

No, I’m not talking about Brad Pitt in his starring role as Achilles in the EPIC chick-flick eye-candy film Troy

I’m talking about my recently created and devoured banana cream tart. It was amazing. Like, I literally took a bite and said “this is amazing.”

It’s also incredibly simple to make and requires no fancy ingredients. It does, however, require a bit of patience for the layers to set. But I know you can handle the wait. I just know you can!

PRODUCT ALERT//
Stopped by @lazyacresmarket_encinitas and grabbed this tonic to keep my immune system solid while my little guy fights a cold. I'm not gonna lie, it doesn't taste that good, but has some crazy good ingredients and so far I'm keeping all the germs from taking me down šŸ‘ŠšŸ» Not upset about my breakfast situation.
GF sourdough open faced breakfast sandwich and bone broth with all the immune boosting goodies. #goodonya #northcountysd #needonedowntown PREPARATION// One thing I never regret;
Taking time to meal prep for myself. It's so much easier to make healthy food choices and lose the stress over time spent in the kitchen when you're prepared! #mealpreppin #gingerorangepork #slowcookerftw If you didn't catch my live video yesterday about my grocery shopping (riveting... I know.), I gave the low down on why and how I make my own nut butter.
.
1. It's generally cheaper.
2. It tastes way better.
3. Easy to do in a vitamix or food processor. Just have patience because you're not making a smoothie, you're grinding nuts until they release their oils and smooth out.
.
Need another reason to make your own? 
4. Customization
.
This batch had a touch of vanilla and cinnamon and I can easily control the amount of saltiness.
.
You guyyyyysssss. It's so good and easy. Be like Nike and #justdoit
