My love for banana muffins began at a very young age. My mother never baked (except for one cake, but that’s another story for another post), so my first experience with banana muffins occurred at a friend’s home. My friend’s mother made, what I thought to be, the best banana muffins. Instantly, I fell in love–and who wouldn’t? The next time I went over to play with my friend, her brother played a nasty trick on us. His friend was over as well, and they decided that it would be fun to lie to us, and tell us that they had banana muffins. We searched her brother’s room thoroughly, and, of course, we found nothing. To this day we still remember the day her brother pulled ‘the muffin trick’.
These are not the banana muffins from the story, but they are equally as delicious, I guarantee.
Vegan and Fat-Free Banana Muffins Recipe
Makes 12 reasonably sized muffins
Recently, I have become acquainted with a fellow food blogger. A couple of weeks a go he asked me why I didn’t post anything anymore. My answer was simple: no room on harddrive. Well, I felt pretty pathetic, being called out for my lack of posts, so, naturally, I went home and transfered files off of my harddrive. A few days later I baked some zucchini muffins, photographed them, and edited the photographs. I may only have three and a half gbs left, but, hey, they can be three and half delicious gbs.
This recipe is dedicated to my food blogger friend.

Enjoy these for breakfast, with another meal, or just as a snack. They taste best when eaten outside in the sunshine. Oh, and they freeze incredibly well.

Recently I’ve found myself to be craving espresso based beverages, namely caffe americanos. An americano is probably the easiest espresso beverage to create, apart from espresso itself.

This is a single serving recipe for waffles. There is no sweetener in this recipe as people tend to drown waffles in syrup; however, adding a tablespoon or two of brown sugar would work.

Pocket Yoga (This review is for the Mac version, their are iPhone and iPad versions as well)
I used to attend weekly yoga classes with one of my best friends. I loved the yoga, but I chose not to register for classes in the upcoming season as I despised the environment. They were in a basement of a community centre, across the hall from an open gym. It’s hard to concentrate on your breathing or balance when you are stuck listening to heated arguments over whether or not a basket was legal. I decided that, if I was to pursue my passion for yoga, there was not the place.
I did sun salutation daily, as my instructor asked of our class, but, once the classes were over, that was not enough. I soon craved yoga, and turned to the internet to self satisfy. I found Yoga Today, and various videos on youtube, but I like routines so I turned to the app store. I was hopeful, and downloaded a few free apps before I ventured to buy Pocket Yoga. I read the reviews and wished the money was not spent in vain. Behold, an app that has the Healthy Happy Hippie Seal of Approval: Pocket Yoga.
I like this app because there are three routines to choose from along with two variations of sun salutation. Next to each routine is a circular button you can press and it will tell you about the practice (intensity, flow, focus). It will also let you pick a practise duration and difficulty.
No one is paying me to write this, I’m writing it because I have a genuine appreciation of the app and wish to share it with you.
I think unhealthy eating habits exist within people of all diets. Their is heavily processed, or ‘junk’, vegan food the same way that their is healthy food which is not, necessarily, vegan. Nobody is perfect with what they eat; as long as one maintains the proper nutrition necessary for their body then whether they are vegan, vegetarian, or even omnivorous does not matter. To answer the question, yes, I have had unhealthy eating habits, but I think everybody has. As I previously stated, nobody’s perfect, and that’s just a fact of life.
