I never intended us to start "eating healthy" when we decided to enter these triathlons this spring/summer.
It just happened somehow.
I'm not saying we never eat our share of sugar and other "snacks"....but for some reason I got lured into this "Eat Clean" eating by certain family members.
Never thought eating like this would taste quite so good...but it does.
Well....I think so.
Just the words "Eat Clean" and "no sugar" and "more fruits and vegetables" strike fear in certain kids for some reason.
Even if I do change the recipe and, (gasp), add sugar-
if it comes out of my "Eat Clean" recipe book I seem to have to "encourage" the meal.
(What words can do....'cause it tastes great! Really!)
Crustless Quiche with Spinach and Feta
Sweet Potato Fries
Broiled Grapefruit with Maple Syrup
Orange Julius with Soy
And one of my favorites....
Banana Date Breakfast Bread
[Recipe is altered by me a tiny bit. ]
I'm not a banana fan so I took a couple out, added more dates, and made a few changes elsewhere.
I'm sure it could be altered to your taste too:)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup apple sauce
(combine above ingredients- blend well)
1 1/2 cups brown flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp sea salt
(combine these dry ingredients and mix well with egg mixture)
Fold in.....2 cups chopped dates
pour batter into loaf pan and sprinkle whole flaxseeds on top.
Bake at 350 for approximately 45 minutes.
