Fashion Fabulous Banana Muffins

Fashion Fabulous Banana Muffins

I made delicious Banana muffins from all of the over ripe bananas that I had frozen in my freezer. You can always take overripe bananas, peel them and freeze them in saran wrap. Defrost, and they  excellent for this recipe. You’ll thank me later. They are delish!!!!

Ingredients:

3 extra ripe bananas.  

¾ cup sugar

1 egg slightly beaten

1 tsp. vanilla

1/3 cup melted unsalted butter 

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. baking soda

½ teaspoon of salt

1 ½ cup flour

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mash bananas with two forks, use hand mixer to add eggs and sugar.  It looks a little lumpy but were good so far. Add the melted butter after it has cooled down a bit. 

Mix all dry ingredients in a separate bowl.  Whisk it together so it is blended well. Add to wet ingredients with mixer.  DON’T OVER MIX.

I ALWAYS ADD CHOCOLATE CHIPS! A healthy cup of them.

Bake for approximately 20 minutes.

You can keep these plain or add a crumble topping.  Recipe below.

January Detox Juice Cleanse

January Detox Juice Cleanse

Every year on my bi-annual trip to Delray Beach, Florida, I always try my best to reboot, rejuvenate, relax and rethink my dietary choices. I always try to incorporate a 7-day detox juice cleanse. The clarity that arrives after a few days is astonishing to me. I forget how great it feels and almost feel guilty that I don’t do it more than twice a year.

Hope this will encourage you to try it. It feels amazing!

My Tips:

  • Organic fresh juice ONLY for 2 meals.
  • Dinner is low fat protein, veggies and fruit.
  • NO SUGAR, NO SALT…
  • 10-12 glasses of lemon water.
  • No eating after 7 pm and do not resume any eating except for tea, black coffee and lemon water before 11:00 am.
Seriously feels great. After first day it’s a breeze. The difference in a week is amazing
I did my  shopping at my favorite place, the Delray Green Market!

My Shopping List:

  • Beets – Improved blood flow, lowers blood pressure, detoxes liver, enhances skin
  • Celery – Includes vitamin C, vitamin K and potassium that helps prevent dehydration
  • Wheatgrass – Too many great benefits to write – Google it.  It’s considered “a superfood” and green gold
  • Apple – An apple a day keeps the doctor away.  Period. The End. 
  • Ginger – Reduces inflammation.  Reduces inflammation. Reduces inflammation.  
  • Lemon – Promotes hydration, digestion, weight loss.  It’s a natural cleanser for your inner pipes.
  • Carrots – They are nature’s honey in a juice! Plus vitamin A
