Banana for Bananas

17 Oct

Motivation for the week: Jamie Eason!!

Jamie is such an inspirational woman – she has been through so much and she shows so much determination, enthusiasm and passion for everything she does. I became really passionate about weight training when I first found her program – Jamie Eason LiveFit Trainer (www.bodybuilding.com/fun/jamie-easons-livefit-introduction.html). I’ve learnt so much from her and my training nowadays stems from the basics that I learnt from doing her program last year. I strongly advise doing it – plus it’s free!!

 

 

 

I’ve got a really yummy recipe for you to try – Protein Banana Bread from www.proteinpow.com. I altered it slightly to fit me (I subbed 3 eggs in the original recipe for 1 egg + egg whites) but here’s my version! My boyfriend liked this too.

 

Serves 10

2 medium bananas (mine weighed about 300g)

1/8 cup coconut flour

1 egg

1/2 cup egg whites

1/2 cup oats

1/2 cup banana whey protein powder (as I don’t have banana whey, I substituted vanilla whey + banana flavouring (sugar free banana drink mix))

1/2 cup almond milk

8 brazil nuts (I think I’ll leave these out next time..)

1 tsp baking powder

Handful of walnuts

Throw all of the above ingredients in a blender (except walnuts)

Stir in a handful of walnuts

Bake at 160 degrees for 40 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean

I’m trying not to stress out about these exams – I had a chat with a lady who understands my situation a bit and she explained that if I fail, worst case scenario is that I will spend one more year becoming a better doctor. So, trying to think positive, keep my head on, and power on :).

 

Love this – I’m all about prevention, rather than just cure. Be healthy 🙂 xx
