It’s my belief that anytime bananas reach this level of ripeness, they are automatically nominated for a banana bread baking sesh. AMIRIGHT?

I have a plethora of banana bread recipes on this blog yet still felt compelled to create a new iteration of this classic favorite. Since it’s officially AUTUMN this week, I decided to jump on the pumpkin bandwagon (sort of) and make a Pumpkin Spice Banana Bread. I also love using almond meal to bake because it’s cheap and easy to find! I don’t use actual pumpkin in this recipe but I do use the spices responsible for the excellent seasonal flavor that we all know and love! There’s also an option to add other fall flavors like pecans and cranberry.

If you’re looking for sugar-free versions, nut-free versions, combo versions, and the classics then check them out here:

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌶 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad 🥑🍋🌶🥒
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. ☀️🥗☀️🥗☀️ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
